Hand-crafted Shoes and Leather Accessories


John Shepherd

I learned to make shoes and leather accessories in Vancouver, with additional training in Florence and London. I continue to perfect my craft on Salt Spring Island. My desire is to create shoes and leather accessories that blend high quality with subtle elegance.

This quotation from an unknown source speaks to my inspiration:

"Beauty does not imply elaboration or ornament. On the contrary, simplicity and character and the dignity which comes of them, are demanded in the interests alike of practicality and of art."
