Project List: Metal Belt Buckles Lots and lots of yarn(different kinds)
Beaded Necklace(yard sale)
Pieces from broken necklaces
I finally finished this belt last year. I had made it awhile ago but it never looked finished so I kept on adding. I used a chain belt like I did here
|From my tribe net page|
I then strung a string of kuchi coins across the back. On the sides I added broken pieces from necklaces that had beads and chain. I also added colored blue beads to the necklace pieces. I then added on the sides, tassels made out of syntheic hair with a small feather.
The front I added the light weight coins that you find on hip scarfs. I added them using o-rings. From the medallions I hung a string of glass beads with a coin at the end. I also added blue bells on the front. Last I added a blue necklace(bought it at a yard sale) that hangs in a swag. Before I completed it I wore out (picture above).
