Firebird Leather specializes in creating Wearables for the Bold. All designs are original and handmade by Nix in her studio in the NoHo Arts District and she welcomes clients in her Hollywood showroom in the Artisan’s Patio. Nix uses old world leather craft blended with modern electronics and technology such as laser cutting, 3D printing and micro controllers to create unique pieces that can be customized to their new owners. Her creations range from elegant leather gowns, dramatic headdresses, custom armor, purses and handbags, jewelry, and other one of a kind items.
Many of Firebird Leather’s creations are derived or inspired by Nix’s lifelong obsession with fantasy and science fiction and the geeky community in general. Her Hollywood showroom, called Heathen, is host to many geeky events such as DIY crafting sessions like her Tiny TARDIS top hat class. Nix believes in supporting other small businesses and all of Firebird Leather’s supplies are purchased from other small merchants, most local to the Los Angeles area.
