Twotone's Guitar Strap

I know I mentioned this a while ago, and Twotone was kind enough to email me some pics of the guitar strap I made. The maille is 4-in-1 bright and anodized aluminum, with "TWOTONE" inlaid in turquoise. The ends are made with two layers of black leather, stitched together with maille rings and attached to the strap with grommets.

I am going to start work on a 'steampunk' strap after PAX. What do you all think? Brass? Bronze? A mix of metals?

It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

PAX Badges are being mailed out and attendees nationwide are finding these golden (red) tickets in their boxes. This is crunch time. Down to the wire. I have 8 lanyards left to make and ten days until I help stuff the swag bags. I CAN DO THIS.

Thanks go out to Rogue for this dashingly handsome mugshot! Looking good, sir.

If you have a picture of yourself with your badge and lanyard, post it! I'd love to see.

And Believe Me I Am Still Alive

I'm making a note here.

Not a huge success yet, but definitely a LOT of progress. Getting down to the wire here, I am going to ship out a lot of lanyards and bracelets next week. My main focus lately has been to just get them DONE, so even if I don't ship them they can be hand-delivered at PAX.

Below is the commission list thus far. Please note I am giving priority to those who've already paid. (It's only fair, after all). I prepped all the rings for Lori's bracelets, and I am making those between lanyard orders. Thank you all for your patience and MASSIVE support!

So. Check out the commission list. If you see an error, please let me know. If you'd like to pay for yours, please Paypal the appropriate amount to thejwalker@hotmail.com or give me some cash the next time you see me!
