I've bought several products from Oberon over the years, for myself and for others--journals, notebook covers, tablet sleeves, jewelry--and I've been awed by every product. The quality of their craftsmanship is impeccable, and they clearly love and take great pride in what they do. And I LOVE supporting local, independent artisans!
The recommendation for a 3rd Wedding Anniversary Gift is something made of leather. My wife writes in a journal every morning and when I found the Oberon Design leather journal on line I thought it might be a great gift. She was blown away when she opened her gift. Thank you Oberon for the handmade gift. Charlie
It was a gift. My stepdaughter seemed very pleased.
Love it so far. With authentic leather and such beautiful craftsmanship, I look forward to using and caring for this cover for years to come. I expect it will become an heirloom. I may have wanted the optional $5 pen holder, but I couldn't find any indication of what it was on the website. I'm still unclear on whether or not it would be a worthwhile addition.
While I will likely never know how the gift recipient feels about this gift, I know I feel good about giving it. It's beautiful workmanship with attention to detail and thoughtful design.
I had my green oak tree journal for about 20 years. It was recently stolen along with my backpack. A sad day. I’m not a someone who is materialistic but of my material possessions, this journal was one of my two favorite treasures. The other was my wedding ring. I’m so glad to find Oberon is still making their amazing products. Yay! I’ll be able to get back one of the two.
This is the 6th piece of art that I have purchased from Oberon and it is absolutely amazing! The detail in the design and the color is exquisite. The only thing that I would have liked to have seen done differently is the way that the leather closure strap is secured on the back. The knot prevents the journal from laying flat and causes it to rock a bit when writing. A very minor issue though.
The journal arrived in a timely manner and in perfect condition. I love the design. It was exactly what I was looking for. I would’ve liked for it to have a buckle closing as opposed to the wrap around leather strap but it is still perfect the way that it is. I would highly recommend this company and the products!
Worth every penny! Beautiful craftsmanship. If you can imagine it looks even better in person.
Once again, beautifully made, and great craftsmanship. Thank you. I love your work, it is so full of heart.
As someone who's also an artist, I greatly appreciate unique, soulful works of art and supporting artists directly whenever I can. As an author, I also know how priceless reviews are! I've LOVED Oberon Design creations since the first time I discovered the Tree Of Life designs in a boutique store (bought myself a business card holder of that design). Hence, why I also opted to receive the e-newsletter, and am so grateful I did! When the Limited Edition Archive Special for Twin Dolphins became available in July, I knew I'd found the perfect gifts for my two youngest nephews (both also my godsons) who are graduating from high school next year in Canada! :) Both are very artistic - one loves gnarly trees and the other loves dolphins. So I purchased a refillable large journal with added pen loop for each of them. Both the Tree of Life in chocolate and Twin Dolphins in navy, are stunning visually and very well made - they should last those two young men for a very long time, if not a lifetime! I wanted to get them special gifts that are beautifully unique and handmade in California, where I now live with my husband. So, thank you Oberon Design for creating these treasures! :) The packaging was also lovely and super fast shipping (even with the free shipping promotion), plus excellent customer service. I definitely highly recommend these beautiful, yet functional, works of art! I'll definitely purchase again directly online, instead of through a boutique store. :)
The journal was a 50th birthday gift for a good friend and was well received. I love the pen holder loop option on this one. I wish my Oberon that I bought nearly 25 years ago and use everyday had one. Thank you, Oberon, for providing excellent quality and customer service.
I love my breakfast Tree of Life refillable Journal! I bought it in a lovely dark brown with Tree of Life pewter fastener. I was also gifted another pewter Tree of Life medallion charm. It’s easy to carry with me everywhere
I have bought 4 different designs as presents. The journals are well constructed, very high quality, and the designs are beautiful. This journal is an impressive product. I will buy more as presents...and maybe one for myself!
1....The large journal was smaller than imagined 2 ....The pages were unlined,not the best for my kind of journaling 3.....The leather knot at back of journal makes it uncomfortable to write as it causes the the journal to wobble as you write.. 4....Love the leather and the beautiful design...
