Todays photo! This is a Barenia Key fob with a Sterling Silver key ring being hand stitching in the Teesdale sun with Beige Lin Cable. Lovely colours and textures, I love being able to work with materials like this - we're very lucky we get to do this for a living. Charlie

Hi Guys, Haven't posted a watch strap photo for a little while so heres a Midnight Blue bridle leather watch strap with Royal Blue lin cable hand stitching. This is a quick photo of my favourite corner of the workshop - the spring sunshine inspired some photography! Charlie
