Skills and Techniques
I love all kinds of needlework, especially embroidery and beading, to create guitar straps that are original, durable, and affordable. I listen to all kinds of music, from bluegrass to death metal, to get a sense of compatible imagery to put on my straps. I am also very good at working with people to create custom guitar straps with their own original designs. You can email me at email@example.com for more information. Thank you!

Hello and welcome! I am so pleased you've stopped by my studio. I hope you enjoy my guitar straps!I began making custom hand made guitar straps in 1998 when my then-14-year-old son asked me to decorate his first Ernie Ball strap.
Over the years I have learned how to tailor my needlework to my patrons' musical styles and artistic tastes and also create images and use colors that give them room to stretch, to express aspects of themselves that they don't often get to express onstage.
I have made straps for big-name artists, not-so-big-name artists, and brand new, just-starting-out artists. All of you are special to me. I respect the courage it takes to put yourself out there and hope people like what they hear. My small contribution is to enhance your stage presence and confidence.
If you are on Myspace, I would be delighted if you sent me a friend request at www.myspace.com/coolguitarstraps. Please also take a moment to visit my blog by clicking the Artisan Blog tab above where I tell you exactly, from beginning to end, how your strap is made and just discuss music-related topics and life in general. If you need to contact me, my studio phone number is 813-949-9269, my email is firstname.lastname@example.org, or you can use the Contact Seller button under my avatar at the top right corner of each studio page. Thanks! Terri
My first guitar strap, made in 1998, for my older son, Travis. It's a $5 Ernie Ball strap.
My husband, Frank, one of Florida's premier environmental attorneys. Can you tell he loves to fish? He is my great shoulder and support in pursuing my artwork. They don't come any better than Frank!
My older son, Travis. He is the catalyst for my work, asking me all those years ago to decorate his first guitar strap.
My younger son, Cannon. He lives his life at full tilt and gladly drags me along in his wake. I'm now thinking of putting my hand to custom drum sticks, thanks to him!
