leather belt loop key fob thingys

i made these for all my little brothers and a couple of my cousins for x-mas presents. each one is unique. all are hand sewn 2 layers of leather, hand tooled designs. some of the hand tooling was done with tools i custom made for the effect i was looking for. hardware is either solid brass (polished and aged), nickle plated, or randomly stolen from bags of my past. some snap open, others are permanently riveted closed

i made these card holders for x-ms gifts. basically the same with some variation. each one has 2 card pockets on one side, and 1 card pocket on the other. there is also a "secret" pocket in the middle. hand tooled, and hand sewn.

pigment protector V-2.0

this is the second prototype pigment protector i made for a tattoo artist/ friend of mine. i think it came out great! it is much simpler than the first version. solid brass hardware and rivets. hand tooled logo at bottom. machine sewn border and burnished edges.

sportster points cover

made a points cover out of some copper sheet laying around at work. cut it to size, beat it with a ball peen hammer on the backside. flipped it over, pressed it flat. then i put it in a bowl of vinegar and salt for a few minutes. pulled it out, let it dry, then buffed out the high spots. repeat like 3 more times, drill holes for mounting- done. i think it looks good, too bad there are no actual points in there.
