Here's a little belt pouch I made for my Daughter, who wants to be a woodland Elf. It was made from an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of leather from Hobby Lobby (since we do not have a Tandy leather store within a hundred miles of us), some dye and a free design from the Tandy website. Next comes one for me!

PS for Thistle: very nice tooling job on your pouch & flute case!

I just made my first ever piece of jewelry that didn't involve macaroni and/or glitter!



Ew. Dirty mirror and kind of blury. A close up shot of the front:



It's made from a medallion style belt I found at Winners that I got for half price because it was broken. I took out some of the medallions and added chain between the ones I had left, except in the middle where I used lobster clasps. I used two, one on each side, for symmetry. The dangly part is two long pieces of chain attached through holes in the centre front medallion that lead down to a final medallion as a fob. I've still got three medallions left- not sure what I'm going to do with them.

Zatahra - I am really impressed with your leather working skill.  I have always wanted to try dying a piece in multiple color, but I have always been unsure how to get it to look like that.  Very nice.

Andunie - It looks like you have really got making masks down to an art.  Your work is very beautiful.  I bet they would also make a very nice home decor item too.

Baron - It looks like you have some woodworking skills there.  What are you going to use them for?  They like the overall geometry of the chair.

GirlChris - I think it is attention to the small details that make one outfit stand out from another.  That looks really good with the long skirt.  Nice work.

Pipere - It also looks like you do nice work.  Did you make your outfit too? 


I just finished another piece of Greek armour.  It is a H/A scaled linothorax.  Now I am left with the decision of whether to wear this or the Bronze Cuirass on the earlier page to Halloween at the Texas Fair this year.  The armour is made of 14 layers of solid linen that has been glued and sewn together.  Every flap is edged by gluing and hand sewing linen bias tape to the edge.  Then I used various trims across the body and hand stitched each through all 14 layers with an awl and needle.  Every red square has a stitch running through it.  The roughly 450 solid bronze scales were hand made and individually attached through all 14 layers as well.  It took between 200 and 250 hours to make, but it is as historically accurate as they come and my favorite creation to date.

I am interested in opinions on whether this or the cuirass on page 2 would be the bigger head turner.  Of course, these pics are only meant to show the armor.  Either way, I would be wearing the bronze greaves, sword, shield, helmet with the crest, etc.

Wow, that is awesome. As for turning heads thats a tough call. For those who would recognize such things, the linothorax would be a real treat to see. But, the bronze is shiny, and nothing catches the eye like shine. And I would think more people would be familiar with the cuirass design. Also, I wonder if people will ask about the linothorax being Egyptian because of the scorpion, and the Scorpion King of recent mummy movies, which might get a little irritating after the work and research on a Greek peice

LOL.  Sad, but probably a valid point.  Thanks for the input.

Here are two recent works. The lion has been completed, and the Kristus is near completion for those that inquired about ongoing works.
1. "Homer" ~  A lion commissioned in one ton of Olympia white marble. aprox. 36"x 48" x22"




2. "Kristus" ~ deep relief, Olympia white marble. approx. 18"x16" x6", from removed section of lion block.

Actually no, I'm relatively new to the steam scene and just getting my stuff together to join in.
