  1. Couple of leather wallet chains

    Had a request for wallet chains in brown and black. First time doing these so learned a couple new techniques during the process. thanks for looking!
  2. Banged out a little bangle

    I got these from Hobby Lobby in the jewelry making section. I bought the bracelet bender and it came with 5 bracelets for stamping into but used them to wrap the leather and test glue adhesion. If you look around on the web I know there are jewelry making sites that offer bangle blanks

    there good for everything lol
  4. Banged out a little bangle

    Finally got around to trying a leather wrapped bangle. I have been wanting to do one for a while just to experiment and had some time over the holiday to make one. Matte black python with black goat skin liner.
  5. Thank you! It is something I pick up a few years ago from Maverick, love the color just haven't used it on anything other than some accents
  6. I think there is still some for sale in the for sale area under leather and lace
  7. actually seems are done in the braiding and the edges are just crossed lace. I went every other hole in one direction and then every other whole in the other direction. I was going to do the braiding on the edges but after doing all the seems I wasn't mentally ready to do the edges...lol...plus I think it gives it a nice contrast with the crossed lace on the edges. Lol....can't wait to see it when it is done
  8. All the seems are done like this, which I believe is a Mexican braid or round braid
  9. Finally finished a leather vest I have been working on for what seems like forever. This is the first vest I made which was a request from my younger brother, took some time since he travels so getting the custom fit took some time, I would get sizing and fitting done any time he was in town. I used a pattern from Tandy and made a paper version of the vest out of construction paper then marked any desired changes on the paper then transferred to leather. Thanks for looking!
  10. Figure carving of Popeye

  12. Some holiday braiding
