Really appreciate everyones patience and understanding that artisan made items take time to create, leather in a lot of ways is very unforgiving a single miss strike of the hammer or hell even a too long finger nail gently touching the wet surface can ruin the thing before its dried and cured. I work as fast as i humanely can with 6 years of professional leather work under my belt. So i think the next time i get a complaint for taking to long i will challenge the person to make the item faster then me and just as nice haha hell i would probably offer them a job if they were able to do it!

Heres a little slow motion action of me making some leather cord/lace i always try and make as much of my own supplies possible because the quality is always far superior for example the leather cord you buy from a leather store typically has a 10lb break strength the one in the video gets tested at 25lb break and 50lb for the size thicker. I use this leather cord/ lace for necklaces armguards and adding the spiral lace to my war cuffs and kidney belts.
