We kind of like that whole Norse Viking thing in our house. Celtic designs with a Nordic flair rule!!!
So, when Chip found Torfin on Etsy, a shop which hand casts buckles in a Norse design, a match was made – resulting in some new bags and belts which Chip is very happy with.
Let me start by showing you a wide belt that he recently completed.
The one end is not sewn down yet as the belt would have to be sized to fit the purchaser – but it obviously would look coot when worn.
This next photo shows the hand-stitching on the belt.
Here’s another closeup of the buckle – this time on a field bag Chip made.
It has a split mystery braid shoulder strap, an interior divider pocket and about 4 inches deep.
The field bag is probably Chip’s most popular sized bag. It is about 4 inches deep and holds alot of stuff. This bag has already been sold for a retail price of $255.00.
Chip has been very busy making more and more things for Hawk Studio, including another field bag which should be completed soon. Etsy has proven to be a good internet site for bringing Chip’s work to a wider audience. He has sold his products all over – including internationally – through Etsy. If you search under “Shops” for “Hawk Studio” at Etsy.com you should be able to find him. Next – how to open an Escape to Evermore Shop on Etsy. I am not as technologically savvy so it is taking me longer.
Hope you like his latest work. In closing, here is a quick shot of Chip working his booth at a recent Beltaine Festival he did.
