I'd like to share a couple of recent ones with you.
Mike had a custom tenor guitar built by luthier, Gregory Miller, and wanted a custom made strap to match it. The rosette design around the sound hole is very unique, and a style created by Gregory. When I looked at this, I saw both a symmetrical and an asymmetrical element to the design. Each of these had possibilities for a strap design, but which one to choose? I decided to make two straps and let the customer choose. He chose the asymmetrical one and was kind enough to send me the following photos of the strap with guitar.
Here's the second design, which did not get chosen.
From time to time, I get asked to weave a sash for use by a Native American for their regalia and I always am honored to make a piece which has so much importance to it's user.
This set of sash and garters were just shipped to a customer in Minnesota whose heritage is of the Wampanoag tribe. He selected colors to match his shirt and apron.
