This graphic was quickly updated with the 'pink' element and joins the other lovelies in the "pinks' folder thanks to random comic book panels at TwistedVintageBlog

Commissioned for Peter McTavish from his wife, Wendy.
The studio started with the all the historical clan emblems available, one from the family and a previous wide wrist band Peter had found at the local Eumundi markets as a size indicator. Barbara has retained all her leather working tools from the 1970s and it was a delight to go back to this medium. We started by working up the vector line artwork both by hand and computer until we had all elements signed off and Juan-Luis could start the minute saw cuts that have realised this task. The shot below is of the emblem prior to chemical oxidisation and the fitting of the pins that secure the piece to the leather band.
Hand made solid silver buckle and lip finish off this one-of-a-kind commission, we love it!

. . . after a Londoner emailed me after seeing an old post of my colonial wire worked cake racks I shot over old manipulator pages:
he wanted me to detail the covers and numbers that I had
so I shot them all and created a .pdf - here
I researched their current asking price on eBay
I followed up the request to let him know if I wanted to sell them
made an offer to sell at less than half of the asking price
pack in one secure box and dispatch
but on the condition he buy the lot . . .
sell for $1,400.00 or wait for possible $5,000.00
no reply as yet . . .
issue #5 is the earliest . . .
and on the 30th May 2014 I received another email offer - see comments:
