Leather, in itself, denotes versatility, durability, and originality, as no two hides are alike. Symbolically, it personifies human resilience, as many of us know what it’s like to rebound from hard places. Bouncing back, pressing forward, and being original is what inspires me, and I want to celebrate and convey what inspires me through my work!
My collection(s) of haute couture leather accessories are created using the finest grains of leather, boasting of organic beauty and texture. I approach every project with the love and respect that I have for my craft, as well as my appreciation for the recipient.
About Designer - Qwishuna Smith
Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland, Qwishuna releases a touch of her urban background, as well as facets of Eastern culture and the Victorian era, throughout her Lobe Dangle line.
Fed up with the trendiness of modern-day accessories, Qwishuna was determined to create an accessory line, using her great knack for attention and detail that crosses fashion boundaries for those who don't care to fit in. She DARED to evolve accessories as we know it, colliding the worlds of leather, accessories, and sometimes metals.
With a spirit of excellence and a commitment to her craft, Qwishuna ensures that each Lobe Dangle piece speaks volumes to its wearer, daring them to step outside the box!
As a designer who’s very attentive to detail, it is consistently my goal to create a body of work that is not only original, but one that is flawlessly made with fine craftsmanship. Overall, it is my desire that this inspired collection will be cherished by its carriers, and worn with dignity and honor.
Though accessory design for Qwishuna began as an intentional love for "edgy" jewelry, her love quickly grew into a passion for leather accessories that extends from couture wear to every day statement pieces. This passion has birthed what's known today as Lobe Dangle's Haute Couture Leather Accessories.
