A Beautiful Embroidered Flamingo Handmade Guitar Strap on Coral Ultrasuede

Who can resist flamingos? They are elegant, beautiful, exotic, and positively enchanting. This artisan handmade guitar strap taps into our mesmerizing fascination with flamingos. The front fabric of the guitar strap is gorgeous coral ultrasuede embroidered with four classically posed flamingos in rich shimmering threads of fuchsia, pink, and black. Above the front flamingo are overlapping palm fronds embroidered in variegated threads of green, yellow, blue, and pink. The back lining of the guitar strap is lush pastel pink Duchess satin and the pin tabs are double thick hand punched and hand stitched top quality black Brazilian textured leather. This guitar strap is absolutely dazzling and is one you will be proud to put on your shoulder.  Beautiful Flamingo Handmade Guitar Strap

When a color feels peaceful

Just listed this new guitar strap on Reverb. The design is classic Native American but it's the colors I like so much. There is something very "peaceful end of day" about taupe, which is the dominant color in this strap. Anyway, I really like it. It has a quiet quality to it. Thanks for taking a look! Peaceful, kind of end-of-day handmade guitar strap

Guitar Straps With A Cool Back Story

I love fabrics that have a fascinating back story and this near vintage material I used to make this guitar strap has exactly that. Just click on the link to the strap. I've included the story in the description of the strap. I think you'll nod and say, "Yeah... kinda cool." Thanks for taking a look!Near Vintage Guitar Strap With A Supercool Back Story

Oftentimes, I make a guitar strap based solely on the fact that I like the fabric. I figure the right guitar will eventually turn up and my buyer will be able to see, better than I can, the possibilities. This is one such combination. You can't argue with perfection!
