Yeah, well, I couldn't throw them away... so I connected these leftover curtain rings with parts from a cheapish necklace. The closure is a bracelet closure I fell in love with because it fits my larp character so well. Of course it wasn't meant to be a belt closure, so I had to fumble it on with some silver wire.
Let's just say it works and has a pretty front.Cheesy


Comments and criticism very welcome! Smiley

This is awesome!  Very clever!  Did you hand twist all of the connection pieces?

Thank you! There wasn't that much twisting involved, I just had to bend the links of the necklace a bit. Since it was really very cheap, these rings are about as stiff as tin foil. I could almost open them by hand. Maybe I shouldn't hang a heavy purse to this belt -the curtain rings are incredibly sturdy, though. Cheesy
