It’s no secret that women riders love leather accessories, so we were excited to find these carefully crafted leather purses and cuffs from a female artisan working out of a motorcycling mecca—the Black Hills of South Dakota.
When Nicola Meeks started making these intricate accessories out of leather, glass and semiprecious stones, she envisioned the venture as mostly a way to indulge her love of creation and design. But since 2002, she’s grown Designs By Nicola into a full-time business, crafting unique accessories that include leather and flame-work cuffs and hand-stitched leather purses and wristlets.
For this kind of quality leather work, youd expect prices to be quite high, perhaps starting at around $300. But surprisingly, Nicolas prices are quite affordable for the quality offered. Her leather bracelets start at around $65, and the leather wristlets start at just $95. That may seem like a lot of money to some, but women riders who appreciate beautiful, high-quality custom leather work can appreciate such thoughtful prices.
