My Rock Belt is made from the waistband of an old pair of jeans.  My best friend tore up his jeans for his Hulk Halloween costume and gave them to me for my crafty stash.



I frayed some of the denim and added chains hanging down to give it that edgy punk feel.   The belt is hand embroidered with rock symbols and words.  I drew each of the symbols myself and chose bright colours to realise them on the belt. 



I imagine this piece being worn low on the hips, maybe with a band tee and some dark skinny jeans.  I think you could wear it casually during the day to punk up your outfit, or out with your best threads to a gig!

Cute!  This would look amazing with a dress/tunic and some tights.  Great job.
