From what I've seen of your gallery, you do truly amazing work, but THIS is just plain awesome! I love the foreboding feel of it! Amazing You are extremely talente(though I don't think you need me to tell you that!)
Awesome piece of work. It's one of these pieces that look simple but take a very good eye to pull off properly without looking garish. I particularly like the two sides that look like the inside of cathedral buttresses. Very very nice.
Absolutely beautiful! The stick pin for the closure is a neat idea (one I may co-opt if you don't mind?)
I was also wondering if you embossed the leather with the gargoyle design, or did you create a template to place underneath the leather and then press the leather down around it to make the raised gargoyle shape?
