Love that concho. Plain and simple, nice. Handle is gorgeous as I'm coming to expect from you.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Sui Generis Whips" - Jessie Edwards

Jessie, I found that cord that comes with out the strings like 650 is harder to do this with than the cord that comes with the strings like 550.
I think it's because the weave in the 550 is looser and more forgiving than that of the 650.
The coyote brown I am currently using for bellies and falls is really easy to insert bead chain and BBs into.
I did find some bead chain smaller than what you can buy at Home Depot.
I chose #3 which is 3/32" or .093" in dia.
BBs are .170" which would be about the size of the #10 bead chain.

It's reasonable in price and it works well for me.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Sui Generis Whips" - Jessie Edwards

Thanks.  I have the #3 ball chain.  I also have 550 paracord with strands in it, but it won't match the whip.  I want matchy matchy.  sad  I'm just going to work this whip a bit and it might straighten out.  If not, I guess the fall will be black and weighted.

Another beautifully unique whip!  Way to go, WS!  Better and better every time!

I'm a huge fan of geometrical designs, that whip handle is absolutely stunning!
Beautiful whip, Jessie!

Jessie, I told you on Facebook, this is a beautiful piece; honestly, it's probably one of my two favorites, both tied for that spot. One is the compass one (I forget that name you gave to it, but I love it) and this one is the second. I love how unique they are.

Jessie, it's wonderful to see how these new whips follow each other so quickly. They're great! I particularly like the blue one....

Re: This is the Gallery of "Sui Generis Whips" - Jessie Edwards

Wow wow wow Jessie. Those whips are so gorgeous. They're so special and unique.
I really like the handles and how all the different parts of the whip flow into one.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Sui Generis Whips" - Jessie Edwards

Even when you made your fist couple of whips, all of them had a very high recall value - that very stylish and unique "Jessie look". I've already complimented you on creating your own style so fast - especialy since you are using so many different materials and methods for your handle designs.
Now I want to compliment you on your fast progress and improvement in whipmaking  - every picture shows how fast you are improving on each and every workingstep which is invloved in whipmaking - you can be very, very proud of yourself Jessie !!!

All the best

Don't know what to name it eh?  Sounds like that's the Trouble with Tribals.  *ducks*  Seriously, that is beautiful Jessie!  Did you ever try the lacing bodkin for making the loaded falls?  It's easier to thread through than a needle.

Yes, I have Tyler. Oh I also found a gadget that works awesome for replacing double ended falls on a half hitch fall knot situation.  I keep forgetting to show that thing off...

7 foot Steampunk whip with a hand carved handle over copper, a glass cabochon sits in the heel plaited in midnight blue.  It is unloaded, but still quite heavy.  It's very nice for the 20/20 challenge training.  It's weight forces you to take your time.  It seems to be nice and straight for targets too.  Whip #17.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Sui Generis Whips" - Jessie Edwards

Yes, Jessie that works fine. I think the fact that the thong is a single colour complements the handle decoration really well. The eye is drawn to the handle rather than the thong. I think there's a lot more you can do with this design style, Jessie. Impressive.

Think for yourself, act for everyone.

Re: This is the Gallery of "Sui Generis Whips" - Jessie Edwards

Terrific, Jessie! I had my doubts, but they immediately evaporated when I saw the completed whip! I agree with Roger: the elaborate handle benefits from the plain thong. And it looks really 'businesslike' as well as beautiful! Well done!  smile
