Jim,

Thanks, that picture was part of my research.  I saw that and like it, and then found Newcomer's rifle.  The tips of the big outside leaves are not clear in your picture.  Are you saying that they are supposed to be rolled over, over the smaller ones? 

Scot



Scota,
Not an expert by any means, but I think you got the idea there.  The way I see it, the tip of that leaf is folded over, which you captured in the last drawing. 

If you want to copy the original picture exactly, it looks to me like you have left out one element.  Wish I could draw it for you, but I suck at drawing.  So, I will try to say it with words instead. 

Look at the original picture, particularly the right side.  That looks to me to be a single leaf, with three "lobes" (don't know the right word here...).  Two short ones on either side of the long one, which has a folded over end.  Your last drawing captured the long one with the folded over end, and also the top "lobe" (top, as in "up" in your drawing), but missed the bottom one.  In other words, the original photo has three lobes, your drawing has two. 

The second photo you posted had all three, but without the folded end of the big lobe.  Your third drawing dropped out the third lobe. 

My terminology is probably terrible, so I hope you get the meaning of what I said. 

Cheers,
Norm

Accoutrements / Quilled horn strap by Djuana Tucker
« Last post by heinz on Today at 06:28:07 AM »
Djuana Tucker created this horn strap for the 2018 CLA Auction.  This would be a nice step without the quillwork, with the quilling it is stunning.


The quillwork design on this powder horn strap is based on 18th century Eastern Woodland/Great Lakes style porcupine quill embroidery. The quills are naturally dyed with indigo, Osage orange, and madder, and they are sewn onto the strap using the zigzag and outline techniques. The strap is 36" long and 1 1/2" wide. The leather is smoked, braintanned, and walnut dyed by Andy Ruffner. The strap is lined with linen and has leather reinforced ends, with two 12" leather laces on each end. 

Djuana (pronounced doo WAH nah) Tucker has been creating porcupine quill embroidery pieces since 2006. She refers to catalogs of 18th century museum collections and photographs of original artwork for inspiration. She uses natural dyes to color her quills and is constantly researching to make her creations as historically accurate as possible.

Djuana does quillwork demonstrations and workshops at living history events, and she has pieces for sale through the CLA website. Custom orders are always welcome. Follow her on Facebook to see the pieces she makes from start to finish and check out the instructional videos on her Facebook video channel.

Djuana has been a loyal supporter of the CLA Live Auction
