Now, enjoy the beauty that is to follow...
|Basketweave and silver dotting|
|Beautiful antique conchos, and all the braiding is hand done in Kangaroo leather.|
|Hand twisted fringe!|
|NO one can try and claim these to be theirs...|
|Buckle matches the antique conchos. Attached with bleeding knot, my personal favorite and found on my headstall.|
|The finished piece: chinks in bullhide leather.|
What amazes me most about these are how much the maker took my ideas, and ran with them, to create something I never could have even asked for. I had picked the leather, told him I wanted silver dotting, basketweave, and my name, and that was about it. I had sent a few photos from images online I liked, so I guess he just got an idea of what I like and rolled with it. He nailed everything right on the head too! The antique conchos are gorgeous, and exactly my style. Coupled with the twisted fringe and detailed Kangaroo braiding. Fabulous, so much more than I was anticipating.
Be jealous...be very jealous.
