my pride and joy. I entered this in the State contest(didn't win though...dont care either, because I was in the newspaper!!!!!) the design on the back of the glove might seem familiar to those who play Zelda, since i borrowed it from Link's shield in OoT. I first went out and bought a pair of leather gloves(Harley Davidson) and then cut out three triangular pieces of nickel silver for the plates on the lower part of the glove. I curved the three pieces to fit along the glove and had them overlap each other to make them look scale-like(that, and they make a kick-ass clanking sound everytime i move it!!!!!) the metal is attached to the glove by hand-made rivets(lost count of how many times I cut, smashed and jammed my fingers doing it). and the final piece is a bird claw that can be slipped on and off any time. i had another idea in mind for the fingers, but i was on a deadline at the time, so i came up with that. I will hopefully have a pair by the end of next year, only if i can get into a jewelry class at the North Seattle Community College in the fall. if you have any questions, just ask.
