Don't throw those old leather belts away!

I always addored cuff bracelets, I guess they remind me of those days in the 70's and they also have a rockstar biker look to them. This old belt already had the perfect holes to wind wire and beads through. I havn't sewn leather before so I choose to lace leather cord through the back holes to tie it on the wrist. With all the holes it even opens  up wide enough for him.  Even if that great belt at the thrift shop won't fit your waist, it can be reconstructed to fit your wrist!
