Thought I'd show you a few photos I took while making the most recent round of therine guitar straps! The first three are from where I lay out my base straps, and then decide which ribbon combinations to use.
And this is my work station! You can see I have already sewn the ribbon onto the straps, and I'm getting ready to cut up the vintage satchel I use for my leather pieces.

Really love this chunky, vintage-y estate jewelry from Lulu Frost. If you're going to go for glitz, might as well go full out, right? Definitely inspiring some ideas for new glam guitar straps.

This video perfectly matches the feeling of the song, especially near the end. Really cool cropped shots and compositions.
Love this one- all white outfits getting ruined by black water = rock n' roll.
The one that started it all. I remember how completely different this video was from the rest of MTV at the time. 10 years old already, doesn't feel like it!
The Strokes have an album, Angles, coming out on Tuesday, and I'm really excited for their new stuff. These pics of earlier times are pretty full of guitar strap inspiration for me. Is Julian wearing a hawaiian shirt? Who else can work that into this kind of look?

Recently seeing (and loving) Black Swan got me interested (again*) in both ballet and feathers. While I can't really imagine a successful combination of ballet and guitar straps, I can think of many ways to use feathers on guitar straps. And fortunately, I just came across this Etsy shop- KIMONOS, which is an amazing resource for them. I'll definitely be buying some of their feathers to add onto new guitar straps in 2011. I can't stop looking at their amazing photography- these pictures look like frame-able works of art.

*check out this feathered guitar strap of mine created earlier this year, now on sale!

A long time favorite detail of mine, these epaulettes are pretty cool. The colors, rugged fabrics, and metal buttons are all inspiring for some details on my guitar straps.
