Headcollar - made to order

Last year I posted that I was soooooo bored with making plain hunt cavesson bridles, well about a dozen one off bridles I had an order to make a headcollar to measure with a few ' stars ' stitched in --- I'm not so bored now.
Here is the finished piece, what do you think.

Completely hand made - stitching as well, the stars are stitched at 16 per inch ( barking mad as usual ), it also has a padded nose and headpiece using the best english leather and solid brass fittings.

Ooooooo how about shamrocks instead of stars?

You are a true craftsman. I can tell from your work that you have been in the saddle trade for many years:) I hope with time that i can produce such wonderful leather work:) Please tell me how you get that wonderful edge on the head piece and nose band, pretty please with a cherry on the top:). Your work is inspiring and it would be fantastic to see more people bringing back the old crafts that sadly are dying due to so many manufacturers abroad producing products so much cheaper and faster. I hope one day to produce leather work to such a high standard but soley with the horses comfort as my priority. Producing such quality and perfection sadly is so costly that skilled craftsman are but a few. I hope i can learn the art and keep the craft a live, whilst allowing people like myself that are not millionaires to buy such good quality products that they will be proud to own. Your work is truly amazing xxx

How much would a halter be in U.S currency? I WANT ONE - if it's not too expensive :P
