  • Silverwork

    I need to find a set of armbands. I believe Crazy Crow and Nocbay sells them, but my arms are a bit large for what they sell. Does anyone make them for trade or know where I can purchase them?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    I've looked all over today, and I still haven't had any luck.

      It's my understanding that Crazy Crow takes custom orders for silverwork items - did you call them and ask ? :)

        They're quite expensive for the simplicity of design that I want.

          the design is'nt usually what costs you the money...the amount of silver and wieght does....If you are a big armed brother I feel for ya!

              And, Crazy Crow is an option at a reasonable cost. I called for a quote yesterday.

                  I have seen some nice work on Issi Umsheid's table. He is with Two Pony's in OK. Frank Ward in the mid west is very good, but I am not sure how to reach him. I owe Black Bear an apology on this very subject. I mentioned Scott Hugebeck awhile back. I talked to his brother who told me Scott is not doing much silverwork nowadays. I bought a nice tie slide from a guy the was set up with Smitty at National. I am not much for addresses, but maybe I triggered someone else that can put you in touch. Rumor has it that PowWowBum49 is dipping into this artform. Once he gets comfortable with this, I would not be ashamed to wear his work. He is an excellent craftsman. He will do it right, or flat-out not do it.

                        When it comes to silver, the man to call is Frank Ward. I've heard that he moved from the address that I have for him, so someone may have his new one. Scott Hugebeck does very pretty work but he stood me up on my last order so I couldn't ever recomentd him after that. If a craftsman takes an order, he should do the work and not just stall someone and put them off. Call Frank. It may cost a little more, but the results will be stunning and everybody will want to know where you got those beautiful armbands!!!:Thumbs

                            SHand, maybe you should contact Scott. He has done a lot of silverwork for me in the past but due to some serious health problems has been unable to take orders.

                            I know the man and don't think he is apt to "stiff" anyone.

                              If you have a jewelry supplyer or art supply dealer in the area, or want to know how to make your own, I'll try to explain it on-line for you. You can get a sheet of metal for about $15, out of that you can get Big armbands. If you want to make your own e-mail me.

                                I'm looking for the florettes or floral feathers for the accents on the bases of larger feathers for fans. I saw that Crazy Crow has them, does anyone else ? Any help would be great!

                                Are they ever appropriate for N. Tradish or for any other of the Men's dances, regardless of style, that you know of?

                                Anybody got some suggestions for some good pots and pans?

                                My mom has some Revere ware from the 50's and they're great!! I bought some a few years ago and they were thin and cheap.

                                I've gone through more sets of non-stick than I care to admit. And I also hate to say I've...
