Pesky orders!

In between preparing for our biggest local show of the year, ACC San Francisco, which starts in just nine days, we’re still plugging away at finishing the siding on the studio, hoping we can finish it and get on to putting in doors and windows.

Of course we still have a business to run. David and I were both up ladders working on siding today when an order for buckles came in. David didn’t have enough hands so I copied down the order on a bit of siding before we got back to work.

And then it was almost time for lunch, and after that heading over to the temporary studio to send a package and work on booth fittings and another vase for another order. But at least we finished siding to the top of the garage wall.

Here is the foldform design we call Spine, made into a brass belt buckle. David has made buckles for decades, and they are still sold through a small group of leatherworkers in different parts of the country. This is the first regular buckle design contributed by Reed.
