Turquoise Tuesday!

Guess what?!?  It's an extra special day because it's Turquoise Tuesday AND National Ag Day! Yay! Oh and we're digging out from ANOTHER blizzard...

Today's Turquoise Tuesday, I am featuring some of my good friends who are amazing leather workers!  The husband-wife duo, Bryce and Megan Hardwick, are the owners of HARDWICK LEATHER.  They are based out Williston, North Dakota, in the heart of the Bakken Oil field. I met Bryce while we were in college at Montana State University (Go Bobcats!).  But I didn't meet his beautiful bride, Megan, until he brought her to mine and Dylan's wedding!

HARDWICK LEATHER offers chaps, chinks, headstalls, spur straps, belts, accessories (like beautiful earrings!), photo albums, wallets and much more!  Bryce also just finished making his first saddle!

And here is my personal collection of HARDWICK LEATHER earrings!

I just recently added the leather star earrings to my collection! And I love them so, so much!! Miss Megan is the creator behind the earrings and she's always coming up with new designs! Of course she knows I love turquoise and she sent me the floral carved turquoise cross earrings this last summer!  But she said I could only have them on one condition...if I modeled them in a photo for their calendar! ACK! I don't like to be in front of the camera...but I did it for the love of turquoise!  Here's one of the photos that my hubby Dylan took of me and Princess Annie.

Here are all of my HARDWICK LEATHER earrings up close and personal so you can see the craftsmanship and detail!

And my Bucking Horse Sale earrings!

The best part about these earrings is that they are so light and easy wearing!  So get on over to HARDWICK LEATHER's Facebook page and give them a 'like' and check out all of their leather goods! And while you're at it, 'like' the Dirt Road Dreamer page too!  But if you're looking to get some leather goods from the Hardwick's, you better get your order in quick because a lil' Hardwick buckaroo is going to be making his entrance into this world very soon!

Thanks for tuning in for another Turquoise Tuesday! Hope you're having a great week!
