DSCN1163On top is the first one I got done     (posted after the first posting)

I have been trying to come up with nice looking patterns for belts and such, that are based on engraving, as these handy fellers do on silver and such… maybe scroll work is a better way to put it…they need to be fairly easy so i can do them fairly quickly, but still pop, stand out, see the details but also the over all effect…this is what I have come up with as my latest after lots of practice, trials and thrown away scraps of leather…

Many practice pieces, last one at top

The bottom one is the one I will strive to copy…or at least make very similar
