The Strap is a Statement Piece!

DSCF0001-2A friend of mine gave me a beautiful old fashion Canon Camera strap. I loved every thing about the strap.

The extra wideness around the neck... the colors... the texture... everything! Except one thing...
It had metal clamps and had to be bent in order to even fit onto my canon camera body.

That artistic and beautiful strap would of been perfect... had it worked for my camera type.
I am big on accessories and believe the smallest item such as a snazzy pair of earrings.. or cute pair of flats can spruce up any persons entire appearance. Rather than forking out a lot of money on big items ... I believe the smaller items
are what really make a difference :-)

Priddy Creations Camera Strap Cover
For a photographer I wanted a beautiful strap to make my look stand out. Instead of a generic black canon SLR strap.. I wanted something to pop! That said "I'm a fashionable and unique Photographer".

I have found that something through a wonderful company called Priddy Creations. I found this company through etsy... but they also have a website where they sell as well.

Specializing in all sorts of beautifully hand crafted totes, purses, change purses, etc... but also wonderful camera strap covers!

This way you can put your cover onto any camera strap you own without purchasing more than one strap.

The strap covers can be custom made to fit your specific straps if needed.

I also love the fact I can wash mine if it gets dirty... after all necks are known to dirty things quickly if you sweat a lot.

The fabric is soft... and beautiful. I also love the extra wideness it gives to the strap. No more cutting into my neck.
