Tendril journal, the tooling begins

So, I finally made up my mind on the tooling and ended up going with doing silhouette carving. This is around 1 1/2 to 2 hours worth of tooling since I have to bevel and background the design. I'm looking at at least another 3 or 4 hours of tooling since I have to finish the rest of the beveling and backgrounding and then I'll need to go back and even out the backgrounding. This is going to be one of those projects that takes me a while. I'm really wondering what I was thinking now.

Wide cuffs

A couple of new wide stamped cuffs since the other ones I had sold.

I really like the way this one turned out, the black strap on the blue is a very striking combination. I just love this little stamp too.

It's hard to tell with the strap the way the strap lays when it is buckled but the cuff is put together so that the stamped cubes alternate creating a checkerboard-like design.
