For those that don’t know I have a grouping of orchids tattooed on my shoulder. Plus…my plain ol’ Nikon camera strap just clashed with my bright & cheery work!

The camera strap I selected comes in many different patterns but naturally the Lime & Pink Orchid Buckled Camera Strap was the choice for me…although if the Gerald the Giraffe Buckled Camera Strap had been available when I was perusing I likely would have had an awful difficulty choosing! Giraffes are my favorite animal & it is positively adorable! If you don’t prefer the buckled options I also wanted to point out they have some with split rings & studs as well.
From Magpie Accessories:
A fabulous gift idea for the hard-to-buy-for photographer.
A lovely soft yet thick and sturdy leather has been useed to make this simple yet classic camera strap. It is pretty much waterproof, as it has a slight coating to the leather. You can also polish it with beeswax to make it extra waterproof.
* It is simply designed yet functional and comfortable.
* There is a antiqued brass buckle on each end of the strap which makes it even more secure to use.
* It works on old and new cameras just the same, digital or 35mm, and its strong and comfortable.
* Other colours available, please ask for more swatches to be sent to you.
My camera strap arrived feeling luxe & soft. Magpie treats their leather with organic beeswax & organic conditioning sprays which also makes it splash proof which is great if you work outdoors & have it around your neck in the humid heat like I do. This slight sealant is supposed to last about 6 months & then they recommend you treating it again yourself.
There is a different design on each side of the strap so I included all 4…& they’re all lovely of course.
You can purchase Magpie Accessories products from their site directly or for us US Etsy loving folks through their Etsy Shop. They also have quite a bit more goods on Etsy so be sure to check there first! & I’ll definitely be keeping my eye out for the future vegan line, love that!
