Magnificent work, Mr. Celeste!
The combination of knots and patterns looks very beautiful and the precision of your work is mindblowing!
I realy like your trademark accent on the belt, it looks fantastic!
Flemming, congratulations to you and to your wife!

Many thanks ti All, it's always so beautiful knowing you like what I do.
Gio, those are two magnificent pieces. Your plaiting is, as always, spot on. The knots are beautifully done as well.
That is gorgeous work, Gio!
Thanks for the kind words to my wife
I can only add that the pictures shows a beautiful belt and at beautiful whip, but the pictures is nothing compared to holding it in your hands.
The belt feels absolutely fantastic in the hands. Concerning the whip - I just enjoy the look and feeling. I will not take it outside into the most rainy weather and wet ground that anyone can remember.
Many thanks to All !!!
I'm very proud and happy about your feedback.
Flemming, thanks again for your kind review!
Enjoy with it when the weather will be fine and better !!!

Thank you so much for your lovely words Sir. Roger and Roy.
Plaited Leather Necktie
here i'm with another and unusual plaited project.
Here it is:
12 plt roo leather Necktie.
The making of this necktie was very interesting becouse i've puted in it all the standard know how about the whip and belt making it was a good exercise of:
Cutting and resizing
tapering and splitting
bevelling and back braiding
Here a few pics of this new item.
I hope you like it
Gio, if a the must be worn, this is definitely the one...
Fantastic!!!! Very well done, Gio!
That is just awesome. I'm not a great tie-wearer but I'd wear that!
Many thanks Rachel and Surname Roger
It think It will be worn just for special events!!!
Now that, Gio, is seriously elegant!
Many thanks Robert glad you like it and appreciate!!
I believe it deserves to be told the story about the choice of the pattern on the handle of this whip.
At first I had chosen the "Solid Band" 16 plait present in the Ron Edwards's book.
My initial intent was to reproduce the same pattern in 12 strands instead of 16.
So after several attempts I asked to Rachel McCollough if she ever made this pattern in 12 strands instead of 16.
At the end after a funny and nice race between Rachel and me (won at the end by her) to reach the right sequence, I realized that my mistake had created this new pattern.
So I decided to show it to Rachel and she also agreed to use this last pattern on the whip.
This story tells once again about Rachel's skill and talent
I'd like to thank Rachel McCollough for her help and her very important advice.
So here a few pics of this whip.
Thans in advance
