Rope and Leather
Ropes and Leather refer to my woven leather covered gourds and my lariat topped gourds. I would classify them both as western, but felt they needed a separate viewing. The lariats are used by cowboys and cowgirls to the point they are to flexible for them, but perfect for me. They are coiled and a pattern added that melts the coil to itself. Both types of gourds are embellished with antlers and other natural materials.
