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!

Great use of upcycling, they look great!

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