About me

Hi there, My name is Rachael. I'm a Maryland girl who moved West with my family in January 2017. I used to be a preschool teacher in Maryland. One of the awesome Moms at school bought me my 1st pair of leather earrings as a teacher gift and I was hooked. I loved wearing them, felt fabulous when I did, and couldn't get over how lightweight they were. They were statement earrings that I could hardly feel in my ears. 

I quickly realized I needed more. I wanted more colors, styles, and sizes. Fast forward to the fall of 2017, I started making earrings and haven't looked back. 

I have always loved fashion and accessories. I love having some Zing in my wardrobe. Put that together with the fact that I love being crafty and making things for other people, it's a perfect fit. Downtown Leather Co. was born. 

I'm a Mom of 2 teenage boys, currently a senior & junior in high school. We have (2) 100 lb Old English Bulldogs, Hurley & Otis and I'm positive you will see all "my boys" in my photos. 

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you love DLC earrings as much as I do.
