I was lamenting the fact that a very expensive stingray skin usually only gets used for the dorsal marking, leaving some very nice skin in unfortunately odd shapes, or small pieces. I started fooling around with the rest of the skin to see what I might do with it. It kind of reminded me of armor. Dragon scales, maybe. That's it! Scales! I cut the remains of two skins into two inch "scales" and stitched them, overlapping, to a band of 9 ounce tooling leather. I finished the edges, set the dragon in the middle, set the snaps on the ends and... we have a winner! I think it looks awesome!
Color: Black stingray with black stitching. The back is natural leather
Size: 9 1/4 inches by 1 1/2 inches; 8 3/8 inches between the snaps.
