"I bought a black leather belt from you last April. I just wanted to tell you it's THE BEST belt I've ever owned. I wear it daily and from the lack of wear, you couldn't tell. The edges don't fray where it pulls through the buckle. The black outside doesn't flake off exposing tan leather underneath. I've barely an imprint from my buckle. Thanks for a quality product."
"Erica--Just wanted to let you know that the belt buckle arrived to much acclaim from the recipient. For a guy who's never been much into accessories, he *really* loves this one. He says knowing it comes from a female blacksmith makes it extra special for him. You've earned yourself some fans in Tallahassee!"
"I was struggling to find a birthday present for my best friend and after seeing your buckles I looked no further. She is going to love it! I might purchase one for my brother in law too! thanks for making wearable art."
"I just wanted to let you know that everyone who sees the buckle you make absolutely loves it! It was nice chatting with you, and it is so good to know about women in our generation making a living doing what they want to do. What a concept. So rock on!"
"I've been admiring your products from your ads in BUST for a while now and with my girlfriend's birthday coming up thought it would be the perfect present."
"Erica, just checked my mailbox and it was there. It is beautiful. You do amazing work... Hell, I might strut around town in it as well. "
"It was my 3rd year wedding anniversary and the traditional gift is leather so I wanted an original belt to give as a gift. I happened to be at my friend's house in Seattle and she said she knew you and had two belts that she showed me. Good job I say - The perfect gift!"
"I heard about you through the great ad that you ran in last weeks Stranger. I have been looking for (in his words) a "killer, unique" belt for my little brother for Christmas. I have a feeling I will be ordering more, as well!"
"Your belt buckles rule! Your work is awesome - I can't wait to wear my new belt! cheers to indpendent art."
"The buckle that I bought is amazing. I will be recommending your work to everyone. I bought it as a gift for my girlfriend for her birthday. Thank you for such unique accessories."
"A boyfriend gave me one of your metal-type belts in October 2005 (birthday). He bought it in Seattle while on business. Still love the belt, no longer love the boyfriend! Anyway, I wear it every day, seriously, every day."
