so, i love belt buckles.  big ol' belt buckles! these aren't huge, the ovals are approx 3.5" by 2.5" and the rectangles are about 4" by 3", but they're cool as h.e.double hockeysticks!

as per my usual, I've embedded fabric (mostly of the vintage variety), needle and thread, and also vintage appliques.  the HOT one was merely for cheese factor.  we found a veritable f-ton of them at an art re-use shop and have no idea what to do with them, so...toss it in the resin, babe!

soon, I'll be posting the mix/match belts that I'm making to go along with them...
lemme know whatcha think!

Pretty neat, martha stewarts craft of the day was making belts with grosgrain ribbon w/D links, but I bet your belt loops would look better than a D link !!

oh, y'all are too kind!

thanks.

anyways...here's how I turned them into buckles...the glue job on this one is sloppy, i'll give you that, but these were intended to rivet onto leather, and I am uber paranoid about my wares falling apart.  I can now say that I have worn mine to work every day for a week plus and no troubles at all!!! (i'm an industrial mechanic by trade, so that's saying something.)

 can't remember the website I got them at, but i will look thru my invoices and get back to you on that one.  i found them originally by googling belt buckle findings.



can't wait to get going on more in-depth pieces now that I'm gaining familiarity with this medium.
