Stone Dragon Studio

December 7, 2017 , , , ,

I had the pleasure of meeting Dyna Chin in Tumacacori, AZ last weekend.  Her hilltop shop, Stone Dragon Studio, commands an impressive view of the Santa Cruz Valley.  The leather workshop is situated near her home, a property she has recently acquired.  The work she does with leather is artful and made with extreme care and craftsmanship.  She crafts custom pieces, such as the story belts, for customers who want a special personal wearable art.  She also designs and makes a variety of utilitarian bags, purses, vests, belts, and wallets which are available full time to customers who want to indulge a wild west fancy in a glamorous way. Her fashions are distinct and classy, as well as highly functional.  I highly recommend a visit to see this art in person.

She had prepared a lavish buffet for guests to enjoy during her open house.  Her second passion is food, which was easy to taste in the quince tart and mesquite flour cookie  I sampled. She does catering for some local people and has plans in the works to begin serving brunch on the weekends on her beautiful hill overlooking Tumacacori.  Dyna adds a distinct new artful flair to this already diverse and deeply interesting part of the world.
