Thanks for the input, there. I suspect that a specially made awl would be in order for that, then.

That couldn't hurt, but I wouldn't know exactly what size to get right now.  I'd also get some magnification on the glasses.  When I tried beading it was TEDIOUS.  I did a good sized sheath in the last month and it wasn't' nearly as annoying.  NOTE that my work won't be mistaken for anyone else's here any time soon, but it looks much better than my beading.

From the Show your work thread, here is some of my very talented wife's Metis bead work.
The blue one is a finished barrette, for her hair and the green one is still a work in progress.

Your wife does nice beadwork. Looking forward to seeing what you end up with on a holster or other piece.

Here is the finished holster, first lined one I made and it was a learning process.

Here's two of Chuck Burrows' pieces I've added to the collection this year. The first is the most recent to benefit John Cohea's health struggles. Chuck's beadwork and John's knives are among my most prized possessions.





This one I found on Ebay and instantly knew it was Chuck's work. Far as I can tell, he never made the same thing twice and most of his beadwork was pictured on the website. This is the first one I've encountered that wasn't. I believe it to be a smaller, slightly less ornate version of the one below it.





I'm happy to say that I own both.





Also got this one about 2yrs ago.



And this one from KT.

I acquired a beaded holster and strike-a-light pouch that Chuck did. Now working on a beaded holster of my own.

I had a line on this one but dude wanted too much for it. The one I started will be more like this. I've got some ideas for how to make it all go together that I want to try.

I like that one even more. It'll be fun to see how you carry that idea out.

I’ve always wanted to get a re-creation knife sheath made for a Quigley belt knife, like Tom Selleck’s character wore in the movie. I have one of the “Original 10” Chuck Staple knives he made for the movie. ( with all the provenance) but it’s in the original leather sheath. I would love to have it in a copy of the simple beaded sheath Matthew Quigley used in that movie.
