The client has an Assassin Creed character from the WWII era they'd come up with and were assembling the essential parts of the outfit. They'd already arranged the trademark blade but needed a bracer to attach it to. I was able to measure a few pictures of the blade they'd ordered to space the holes so they should line up pretty well. Included a few rivets too so everything'll match nicely.
Meanwhile, Dec starts tomorrow and I'm set to continue my little tradition of tossing in little ornaments with orders shipped that month. This year I've printed a bunch of 2" silver snowflakes. I'm enjoying the design but at this rate I'm going to need to print a lot more...

This client wanted to mark the anniversary of a special cruise they'd taken up the Norwegian coast. Each stop of the cruise is marked with a gold dot and the path itself has some dual-beveling I don't get to use a lot. I had an interesting time trying to get my computer to process the super complex geometry of Norway/Sweden's coast line but all those fjords and islands carved up really well!

Unfortunately I never found out quite why the client needed 26 Dice Cups in short order. Each one had the same horseshoe logo on top and a different initial on the front so I was able to assembly line their production. I started using a heavier leather for the bodies and made some improvements to the marking and assembly that've really improved the overall build and quality.

"Thanks #fosterleathercraft on Etsy for this shoulder strap pad. This #starwarsdooneyandbourke was a gift and as amazing quality as it is, the paint on the shoulder strap is peeling a little. This should help protect it and the color looks great on it! They also have great customer service. Thanks again! #starwarspurse"
