My journey as leatherworker continues... I Always love to draw so I decided to start engraving and staping some of my leather projects...

So here is a little project I done lately...

At first as I sayid in the elleth archery guard topic me and my leatherworker still working on boromir warbraclets designed to use with the bow..But I need some armguard because I lost my old one :)

So here is it

Of course I made some mistakes... First of all rivets...I just smash them with the hammer so its not so good looking at all...
Next think I done wrong is the length of the straps... the top one could be longer.. but its not a big deal...

So what you guys think?

That's some lovely work! The design works well for an archery bracer! I quite like it! One word of warning though - from personal experience - when bracers like that have points on the upper part of the arm, sometimes the string can catch them and snag underneath them, which can be both annoying and painful. The point on yours doesn't seem to be very pronounced, so hopefully you won't have this problem, but I have seen it happen before.
Anyway, otherwise I think it's absolutely gorgeous! Nicely done!
