    Really nice designs and workmanship, I love the buckles, they look like huge watchband buckles.

    Where are you located, TD? Do you work somewhere that gets you access to machines for making the buckles?

    Its been a long while since updating some of my work here.

    I have been making leathercrafts by 4 main styles, as I have learn that different people has got different lifestyle and taste in terms of fashion.
    This way, every time I start making something it does benefit as I have a theme in mind for each item made.

    GENTLEMEN STYLE
    As the name suggests, leathercrafts used by "˜gentlemen', or rather, for men who are required to dress formally daily and for more dressy occasions. Smooth and slick leathercrafts with nothing elaborating, just classic designs.

    NATIVE TRAVELLER STYLE
    Most commonly known style in the world of denimheads. American vintage coin conchos, free-flowing tassles, hornpipe and colours beads are some trademark of this iconic style.

    WORKWEAR STYLE
    Usually, simple and clean look, functionality is the key in this category. Because of their ease to use, it is almost guaranteed that they will be "˜used' for a long time and hence, promising awesome aging looks.

    CONTEMPORARY STYLE
    A mixture of everything, belongs to nowhere, out-of-the-box design are what you can find here. It is probably one of most difficult in terms of designing, as the leathercrafts are often not made with conventional crafting techniques.

    A sling bag, using soft black cowhide leathers, with nylon straps and a big iconic concho for styling. Zipper closure, able to store most of everyone's EDC.
    A great storage material for bicyclist. Easily accessible and tough to withstand weather and time.

    So I'm planning a coin-pouch group buy project (as seen on the SuFu belt thread.)
    Similar concept as the previous two belts projects.
    Please PM or e-mail me if you need (or would like) a coin pouch.
    The craftsman is yet undetermined, but I would like to have at least 15 to 20 people interested before I really start pestering workshops :p
    The region this time would be Asia (as in the coin pouch will be made there.)

    ^ There's no link, and no concrete details.
    I'm just seeing if there are enough people interested.
    PM me if you are interested!

    Love seeing everyone's work here. Truly inspirational. I hope I can be great artisans like you guys one day. Here are a couple of things I've made:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Double D-Ring belt I made from the D-rings of an old favorite belt of mine that was falling apart.

    [​IMG]
    Remake of the first leather bracelet I ever made.

    [​IMG]
    Set

    Those are all the photos I have right now. I am going to attempt my first wallet very shortly. Wish me luck!
