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 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 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, or you can use the Contact Seller button under my avatar at the top right corner of each studio page. Thanks! Terri
