    Yes I was going to get around to doing a second 'gallery' thread of these being worn. My intention (though I forgot to mention it) was for this thread to just be closeup photos of the sporrans in isolation.

    I took the liberty of posting y'alls photos of these sporrans 'in action' on the other thread.

    Mine is sporran #5 that OCR kindly presented in post #1. It's a mottled pig skin, and I make a point to wear it at all the Highland games I attend (as long as it's not raining).

    Fantastic sporrans all.....its great seeing them all on one area....the possibilities are endless. .....We in Scotland seem slow on the uptake when it comes to our national dress / costume.
    I myself have started to try and make a brass cantled sporran out of old brass sheet found in the corner of my father's garage. ...must be 30 years old at least....but I can't muster the money for the ones you have all posted. ..never done metal work in my life and scavenging to get parts to adapt to make it...so far it has cost £ 1.95... the cost of soft solder... but I now have a working frame and will post photos when I work out how.
    keep up the good work.

    That's a good point. While taking absolutely nothing away from the wonderful work of the Artificer, the sporran commissioner often does much of the concept development and has a huge collaborative hand in the design process. Scott made my dream sporran a reality but it would be nice for admirers to know that it is a creative collaboration. I take pride in the sporran not just because I own it, but because it wouldn't exist if I hadn't taken the steps to have it made.

    @jock gray, Looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I did a few DIY cantles. It's always interesting to see a different take on a metal cantle. good luck with it!

    You can use a free hosting site like Photobucket: you upload the pics to your computer, then to the site, then click on 'copy' and in your post here hold down the "ctrl" button then click "v".

    Or you could take the pics with your Smartphone, upload directly from your phone to Facebook, then copy and paste from your Facebook page onto your post here. (I just got my first Smartphone a couple weeks ago, so this method is new to me!)
