  1. Lovely! Painted and the chain are my favs. Making your camera strap look like jewelry is a perfect idea especially if your camera is your signature accessory anyway!

  2. I love the painted one!! The chain is really cute – but does it ever have the problem of banging against the camera? I think I’d be nervous that it would.

  3. Cool! Especially love the last (spiked gothish) one! My big beef w/cam straps is the usual lack of a swivel, which drives me crazy how it gets twisted up when throwing over my shoulder. Took me forever to find a swivel that worked (success found @”Hobby Lobby”!) Here’s what I ended up doing for a/b 4 bucks!!: http://wildstar84.wordpress.com/ (picture).
