I take commissions occasionally, so feel free to email me your ideas.  I don't take on more than one at a time because I do work a full-time job, so I'm kind of a weekend/spare-time artist :)  The best place to reach me from the blog is purdue2781 at yahoo dot com.  You'll have to figure out how to email me...spambots go crazy for this kind of info.  Sorry spambots, not today! 

I work in all scales from Micro Mini to Lg. Traditional, and I primarily do English-related sets or harnesses.  For English-related, that means huntseat, dressage, jumper, racing, polo, etc...anything with some version of an English saddle.  Feel free to inquire about any type of harness as well.  If there's something else specifically you're curious about, just ask (I get tired of making the same stuff all the time!). 

There are a few things that I'm not comfortable taking on just because I haven't had the chance/desire to give these a try yet:  Western, Peruvian, Native American, Spanish, or basically anything requiring tooling of leather, special knotting/weaving, and painting/beading.  The bottom line is that I don't want someone spending money on something I wouldn't show myself. 


I don't have a price list made up because each set I do is unique.  There are a few factors that influence pricing -- scale, complexity, and number of pieces necessary to complete the set.  Of course my time is part of it too.  If you're interested, just drop me a line with what you want and we can go from there.


I'm not sure how other tackmakers operate, but I ask my customers to provide details and reference photos of exactly what they want.  You can leave it up to me if you want, but I'd really like to get your input along the way.  And because you have chosen to spend your hard earned money on something that I'm to make for you, I want it to be exactly what you had in mind.  If you don't have reference pictures, I'll find some and verify the details with you.  I like to know your preferences for everything, so please don't be overwhelmed if I ask a lot of questions in the beginning.  I just want to get on the right track, and then I'll get crafting.
