Happy Holidays

Posted on December 20, 2020 by Ray Holmes | 0 Comments

I've been lax with the blog posts lately, but it's been quite a year as we all know, and here at HOLMES I've been head down, isolating, and working as usual. 

Here's to happy holidays, good health, and a brighter 2021for all.

It took me years and a specific request to get around to doing a strap (or anything) in yellow. Now done, it's pretty awesome. It'll take a bit more time to add it as a color option in individual listings, so meantime let me know via 'contact' if you're wanting it.

Hiss Fobs

HOLMES-made leather key fobs for Hiss Golden Messenger. Debossed with the Hiss wand logo, these are available through the Hiss website in either black or brown, both with brass hardware. As I write I think the black fobs may already be sold out.


Custom Buckle Front

HOLMES custom buckle-front strap for Jared Artaud of the band The Vacant Lots. 

Custom straps are a big part of what I do---in this case, riffing on older existing strap, finding the right buckle, and building the strap around it.

Happy New Year

Between a busy holiday season and dodging California wildfires, I'm a little late with the wishes, but here's hoping 2018 is a good one for everyone. Thanks for the continued support!
