Fasteners and Embellishments


Many different kinds of fasteners can be used: buckles, locks, snaps, laces, velcro, etc. The choice of how an item fastens will affect the structural design and how the item is put together.

  • Rivets - both structural and decorative
  • Knotting and Weaving
  • Braiding Materials
  • Machine or Hand Stitched
  • Hooks & Eyes
  • Velcro
  • Snaps
  • Zippers
  • Lacing


Embellishing an item makes it unique. There is an entire range of decorative options which can be added.

  • Studs of Various Shapes and Sizes
  • Custom Stenciling
  • Engraving on Metals in Various Fonts
  • Hand Tooling
  • Embroidery
  • Bead Work
  • Applique
  • Attachment Points: Rings, Ds, Squares


Many different styles of leather and fabric are immediately available in my workshop. I can order most specialty hides and fabrics as needed.
