One of my studded belts unfortunately bit the dust recently. Since it was my favorite (it had 3 rows of big studs instead of 4 rows of small ones, like most do) I didn't want to just throw it away. So I made some jewelry! And I now have an abundance of studs just waiting to be used.

First, a wrap bracelet.

I just cut a strip from my belt, and put on some snaps that I got from an old bracelet. Since I didn't have new snaps, or any snap placing tools, I had to kind of wing it. I ended up cutting little slots in the leather, and shoving one side of each snap through like buttons. I put on a few coats of mod podge so they don't slide around or fall out. Hopefully they'll be sturdy enough.

The ring was even easier.

I just took a stud and glued it on to a cheap old ring I had laying around. It doesn't look very finished from the side, because the detail of the ring is still visible under the stud, but hopefully no one will notice. And I have plenty of studs left in case I ever get some simpler rings.


I reject your reality, and substitute my own.

Great idea, and I'd never notice the side of the ring.  I love these!

Ooooooh, I've never thought to do anything like this with my old, worn out belts! Great idea!

Great use of upcycling, they look great!

Twice the mayham, triple the force, ten times the action: total hardcore.
