Leather Strop

I recently designed and made a leather strop! Checkout the JaGanski N0.1 leather strop and let me know what you think?!

I had been wanting to make a leather strop for some time now, especially as I had grown up using one for my knives, albeit a very basic example. So when a good friend of mine asked me to design and make him a leather strop for his straight razor, I jumped at the chance!

In an age where built in obsolescence is still prevalent, a straight razor and leather strop are a great alternative to the throwaways!

Tree of Life Pendant

Continuing on from my last news post, I would like to share with you a pendant I designed and made late last year.

The Tree of Life pendant was designed to be a companion piece for the Tree of Life belt buckle.

It was commissioned by the brother (who owns the original buckle) as a birthday present for his sister.

The pendant features Myall wood (as does the belt buckle), both laminates of wood were cut from the same original piece of timber.

My Makers Mark has just been published

These past few months have been quite a roller coaster ride, to say the least! My new website is up and running (with lots of great feedback coming in, thank you everyone!), new designs on the way, great commissions completed...

To top it all off, I recently had word that my 'Makers Mark' has been published. The book is entitled 'Marks on Australian Silver 1950-2005', by Christine Erratt. She has spent the last 7 years researching Australian Jewellers and their 'Marks', it is the only book of its kind documenting the subject.

It's a real privilege to have been included amongst the select few, especially as my 'Makers Mark' differs from many, it is hand engraved rather than stamped.

For further information check out www.parkerpressbooks.com.au

My 'Mark' even made it onto the inside cover and on the website, look for 'Tam' (right in the middle)!!
