  1. I decided to begin.

    If you can somehow incorporate something from your town into your work, either a certain style, typical color used, or a decoration that has some tie to your town, that will give your products an appeal to tourists who want something to remember their travels by.
  2. Edge painting

    I dunno, with the way the rest of the leather looks, that might just be what you're going to get with that stuff. I say accept it as part of the look, maybe do an overstitch for decoration over the edges or something.
  3. leather bracelet

    Neat! I didn't catch that it was cut outs at first, that will have a lot of depth to it.
  4. A bridle leather belt

    Yeah, really slick looking!
  5. last saddles

    Those are fantastic, and I LOVE the second one's color. The feather is done perfectly too, it looks like it just drifted down onto it!
  6. How I make Wedding Ring Boxes

    That was a great look into all the behind the scenes work that goes into those boxes! Thanks for posting it!
  7. all tools

    Hey, I live in central Iowa too! Maybe we could meet some time!
  8. Dog Harness

    You can see that the chest on your dog compared to most other dogs is incredibly narrow, in your dog's case I would treat it more like you would a breast collar for a horse, in that you have the wide chest plate but have a d-ring in the center of it and a narrow strap that goes between the front legs, instead of a wider solid piece. Could even make it a leather braided cord with a snap on the end instead of a flat strap. That is 100% awesome!
  9. Leather Wrapped Bicycle

    Woah! That's one fancied up bike!
  10. Leather and glass choker

    Thanks! Indeed it is! You can see I keep making tiny projects so I can eke it out another zillion years. Thanks!
  11. Knuckle duster

    That's one super fancy piece! Not too far that it looks weird though, it goes really well together.
  12. Leather and glass choker

    I do lampworking (making beads and such out of molten glass using a torch) and the latest project I was working on was making leaves, then to make something out of at least one of them. Bracelets and regular neclaces weren't doing anything for me, until I thought of incorporating leather. Found a scrap of Horween that was even close to the right shape, cut it and tidied up the edges, added some beads and riveted on some things braided wire and a clasp and boom! Turned out to be pretty unique compared to what most lampworking were putting out.
  13. walking cane cove

    Really nice choice of leather, the textures go very well with the wood, as does the color. Also like the pop of turquoise to add interest.
  14. Bookmark

    Nice! A bit beefy for paperbacks, but any thinner and tooling is a pain. Should look great tucked into a hardcover.
