Hello watchfreeks :)
I have recently returned to strap making after a few years on hiatus. I'd like to share with you some pictures of my straps.

Do you sell them.

Welcome to the forum.
What do the straps range in prices? How would someone order if they we're interested?

Thanks for the welcome :). Sarasota is the best:smile-thumb2:
You can PM me or send an email - I added my address to my about page. I will post some more info in a minute or two...

The traps are for sale but I don't have enough posts (I guess?) to make a for sale thread.

I can post some genereal information about my straps:

All straps are made from hand dyed vegetable tanned leather.
All are hand stitched.
All straps are pre-softened, so they are nice and comfortable on the wrist from day one.
All have fully finished sides, some are burnished to a shine.

You can PM me or send me an email; I have updated my "about" page with my email address.

Close-ups of strap no.9 from the first picture. This is a 24mm strap in orange tan, aged with painted on patina. This strap tapers gradually in thickness from 6.1mm at lugs to 4.8mm at tip and it is sewn with awesome quality Wenzel linen:

Some of my new buckles
 
Here are some buckles I have made. Finished with hand tools only. They will eventually end up on my straps.

Coffee dyed strap, nice and soft. Light khaki thread matches really nice.
