Gene did a Google search for "blue jean guitar strap" and was led to my etsy shop.

That particular guitar strap had already been sold, but he got to looking around and here is what he found and purchased. When I sent him an e-mail to let him know I was shipping the order, I asked how he found me.
His beautiful message was an affirmation that I am doing the right thing. Here are some excerpts:
"I have a couple of guitars that are special to me.
After looking at the prices on Musicians Friend and some other sites for guitar straps, I decided your inkle loomed straps were for me and my special guitars.
I love your art and somehow, I feel your sprit is in tune with what my artist wife and I are into.
Plus I just could not stop looking at the pattern, and how well it was made.
So basically I spent way more for guitar straps than I planned, but I am sure every penny was worth it.
You are producing ART, keep up the good work!"
|An unusual type of motif for me which I made up as I went along.|
This one was called "Radiating Reds" because of the gradation of colors going from light in the center to dark on the borders.
