It looks very good Jessie! Do you have any videos where it speaks?

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

There is just something special about a chocolate brown whip, with no highlights or colours to draw the eyes away from the well plaited overlay. Stunning. And ditto for a video of it 'speaking' smile

I love the simplicity of it.
Well done.

no talking this week, but next weekend it should be relatively nice, so my camera wont be destroyed by falling snow.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

I really do like that chocolate brown.  From a distance, in the photos at least, it could easily be mistaken for hide.  Nicely done, as usual, ma'am!

Yeah, that's awful close, but that's not why I'm so hard done by...

Very cool Jessie! That looks perfect for can cutting. smile You could probably cut through two with that beast!

Jessie, that looks wonderful - and it could easily be mistaken for leather a few feet away. Well done!  smile

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

A difficult build for such a simple whip.  I am reminded why I hesitate to do commissions.  I love this cord and look forward to doing another build with it, only this time, I make the rules.

Nice Jessie.
What was the difficulty?

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

Jessie, that's extremely stylish! I don't normally like sparkly gold things very much - but, in this case, it looks great! And the photos show it to fine effect. I think it could almost be named 'Camouflage' - an effect enhanced by the grapevine on the handle. Very nice!  smile

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

I'm not normally a fan of the patterned paracord, but that is beautiful Jessie, and the grapevine words really well with it as well.

Re: The "Making of" Gallery - Jessie Edwards

Thank you.  The difficulty was that my customer didn't want the original wood handle, so that had to be rebuilt, then she didn't care for the cabochon I made (I designed a phonenix for the heel), so the heel knot had to be cut off and redone.   It just consisted of a lot of dismantling and rebuilding.  It's my own fault.  I assume everyone wants fru fru pretty and some people just want a whip.

I am going to get another batch of this cord though and do a build I want with it.  It's so pretty.
