Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day…We just finished the last of the leftovers for dinner last night.
I also got the itch to cut up and play with another used thrift store belt for embellishing cuffs. This $3 belt will make four bracelets. While three are done, there’s still one more in my head to make.
Using varying combos of embossing, painting, and ink stamping, these all received different embellishments. Each one also has a different closure. And all were treated to a couple of coats of Ren Wax to protect the finishes.
This first one has a large agate slice wired on with a button and leather loop closure.
Next has a lovely statement that kind of makes me a little teary. A great encouragement for women, I think. Used a leather lace with bead for an adjustable closure.
This last one might be for men or women?? I do like the large toggle clasp with the pewter painted finish on the leather. Not sure…unisex? What do you think?
One last look at my new trio of up-cycled leather bracelets. Still plenty of belt for another one!
