In a word, WOW!

Jessie, this is stunningly stylish!  I hope it goes to a very appreciative home in due course!

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

Thank you everyone.  I want to attempt another, but I have an order to fulfill first.  Until then, this will go to the UK for the whip cracking championships...thing.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

Finally got the build figured out for these.  I struggled with the "ungutted paracord" core that these are usually made with.  I have a 425 tapered twisted core in mine with a very light weight going halfway down instead.  I also bound my core and belly making them springy and less erratic and easy to crack.  Look familiar?  This customer wanted these two whips to look exactly like the practical bull I made a few months ago.  My guess is this customer likes vanilla ice cream, the color beige, and watches a lot of public television.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

Great job on these.
I love the color combination.

Was the English eye just doubled back and then bound, or inserted into itself and then bound?

I also love your logo in the heel cabochon.

A fine pair, Jessie!  They look as if they would fly effortlessly!

Very nice Jessie.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

Okay... Why vanilla and why public tv? Beige is not so hard to think of. And a lot of people like ice cream. But why so specific on vanilla and public television...? Please - explain smile

And - good work, Jessie!

Robby and Robert. It means she thinks the guy is rather unimaginative.

Although, I like vanilla ice cream and watch PBS and listen to NPR a lot, myself.

I'm not terribly fond of vanilla ice cream or public tv, but I do like those whips.

To the optimist, the glass is half full. To the pessimist, the glass is half empty. To the engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

Nicely done Jessie!

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

Ron, The english eye is doubled back, hand sewn and bound with waxed Dacron. 

Robby and Robert, the guy is boring, unimaginative, safe.  He now has 3 whips from me and they are all exactly the same.  No rocky road with sprinkles and butterscotch sauce, no action movies, no conspiracy theories, no rock and roll.  Snoresville, man. 

I now have an order for a Kraken whip.  Let's see if I can pull it off.
