As I’m working on and getting increasingly frustrated trying to build/rebuild the photo gallery on the main website I thought I’d use some of the fancy web tools out there and load a couple of galleries into the blog. While it’s not official and all that, it was freaking easy and I feel somewhat accomplished so I can go back into the shop and work on orders without feeling guilty. 😉 Tonight I’ll start with the most popular, the motorcycle Whaletail Tank Bibs (aka California tank bib)  Enjoy the pics!

Leather & Titanium Wedding Rings

Posted in custom work, Leatherwork, rings, Three Mutts Customs with tags , , , , , on January 3, 2012 by Chris Wright

Back in November I was requested to make a special pair of wedding rings for a very nice couple. They were looking for a local artist to make them a pair of rings for their upcoming wedding that incorporated metal but needed something that wasn’t a hard band as the soon-to-be-groom has serious carpal tunnel syndrome. They had found a ring online that was a sterling silver plate with a brown chrome tan leather band but the ones available were only made in a half dozen small women’s sizes. Aside from the size issue, the metal was a concern as well since these would be worn everyday and Sterling Silver is rather soft.
