Etsy Love!

I've been guilty for a while now of keeping my best looking goods for the Saturday Market and listing whatever is left over on Etsy. This will happen no longer! I've already started putting up some listings for hybrid and colored road tire belts and will continue to do so. Later this week I'll have some more road bike tire belts going up, both colored and regular black. Next week I'm hoping to put up some better keychain listings and a couple more buckles, and some more mountain and hybrid bike tires if they are needed.





Go check them out!

New Buckle Designs

I've been continuing to work on buckles, experimenting with new designs and materials. The cogs and chain were obvious, I've added spokes and pieces of tire now as well.





It's definitely a lot of fun working on these, thinking up new designs and ideas. People have been responding well to them at the Saturday Market, sold 7 this weekend! They look even better once they are on a belt. I even had one stolen this weekend, at first I was annoyed, it's pretty disrespectful, but in another way it's a weird kind of compliment. Someone liked it enough (I hope) to risk stealing it from the person who made it. At least that's how I'm looking at it.
