Meet the Artisan

Alyssa Olson

About the artisan:

Hey y’all!  I’m Alyssa, the maker/painter around here. A few of my favorite things are fringe, a smooth two-step partner, and my trusty ol’ grey pony. 

People often ask how I got started painting and making leather jewelry. I have loved to draw and doodle on paper since I was small. I took a few art classes in high school and college – nothing too serious. I married and then found out we were having identical twin girls a few years later. My life dramatically changed and I needed something for myself that I could still do from home. Being on my own with my horses has always been my happy place, so since I couldn’t ride horses as much, I started to paint. That’s when Desert Sage Designs was created.

In addition to being a skilled artisan, Alyssa is also the person who answers our phone when you call Great Basin Seed! And, she ships all web orders! Alyssa is pictured here with her husband and their twin daughters.

My pieces are all hand painted. No two designs are just alike. I do not use stencils, so you’ll be wearing an original. Materials are hand gathered, measured and hand cut from various leather hides to be painted. Once the design work is completed, edges are beveled, smoothed, buffed, and sealed. Antique brass is used for all metal to created a western rustic look to your jewelry. 

Thanks for checking out my work. I hope you enjoy every piece.
