In looking for new projects to make with fused glass I ran into the idea of belt buckles.  I ordered these two antique nickel blanks off Etsy and fused pieces to put in them, each combines two different pieces of glass for texture and colour.  I found nice leather belts at a place called Bootmaster in Toronto with snaps to change buckles.

I didn't get the dimensions or shape perfect and ground them down to fit. 

Overall I was happy with these as gifts as were my friends Smiley

WOW! This are great and it's no wonder your friends loved them.  My guy has recently gotten in touch with his inner WesternMan and taken to larger belt buckles that he can change out.  I'll have to keep my mind open for ways that I could use a blank! Hmmmmmmmm...
