the Bartonsville covered bridge met it's demise during hurricane Irene this summer. You may have seen the picture on the news of this wonderful old covered bridge being swept away by the river. There is a picture included of the site after the bridge with nothing there. so sad but yet amazing. The bridge stood strong since 1805 and the date is stitched on the sign over the mouth of the bridge. The piece is 11" long and 16.5" wide and has triangles on the back for hanging with a dowel . It is going to be at the Chandler holiday bazaar in Randolph for purchase starting in late November. Feel free to email me with details on this one or I could make another:-) for you.
I would need at least a week to make it but it could be to your specs, I can't make anything exactly the same of course.

This Chan Luu style Leather wrap is made with semi precious Fire Agate 8mm beads and cream colored glass beads all carefully strung around a high quality natural antique brown American leather cord using a forest green super strong thread. It is 38 inches in length plus the closures, it will fit anyone with a 6.0 wrist to a 7.5 wrist ( wraps 6 times on a 6.0 wrist). It has an adjustable dragonfly closure and silver button with four different loops, you simply find you size and trim the excess leather. This time I used larger diameter beads and little trinkets on the closures to create a chunky, erthy, organic look that is simply one of a kind.

We selectively harvested maple saplings from crowded forest areas and peeled the bark to reveal a beautiful light honey colored wood.

Next we cut the pieces to six inch lengths and hand sanded each piece smooth. Finally, a coat of our homemade beeswax finish was applied.

A great source of natural homemade dough can be found in Mama Ks shop here http://www.etsy.com/shop/MamaKs?ref=top_trail.
