GIVEAWAY! STUDDED AND JEWELED BIKER BELT

I  decided to put together another belt late last night and had to stop or else I'd get no sleep.  I get so much pleasure in putting these belts together that I get so caught up and next thing you know it's zero dark thirty and I've got thirty minutes of sleep before work.

Every belt I've ever crafted was meant for me to keep, but I always end up getting rid of them.  This particular belt will be my first attempt at a giveaway.  I've always intended on having giveaways as I have so many vintage things just sitting around, but never figured out how to go about doing it.  Ha!  Turns out it's pretty simple...at least Welcome To Deluxeville makes it seem super simple, so I've taken her rules and am applying them to this giveaway. 

Not sure if I'll have any willing participants, but either way I'm interested in seeing how this goes.  Keep in mind that I'll have sporadic giveaways, so be sure to keep an eye out.

This was a brown leather belt and I applied a single coat of black dye.  When the black dye begins to wear out, you're left with a nice looking patina.  As you can see, I'm using white leather insets with silver spots. I will apply two more of these shapes evenly spaced out.  The color of jewels used will be left up to the winner.  At the moment I have black, blue, red, amber and green jewels.  The center of each inset will have a jewel.  I can either put another jewel or silver spots on either side of that (I also have limited brass spots).  Between the insets, I can put a jewel with starburst design...up to the winner.  The buckle is fixed (sewn in), but I can unstitch and put a couple of small buttons so the buckle can be swapped out.  Again, up to the winner.   Details will be ironed out between myself and the winner upon announcement...or I can just complete the belt this weekend using my own design - let me know the best COA.

Belt is made of genuine leather.  With the exception of the center jewel, the others are just laying there for visual reference of colors.  Each inset will have a maximum of three jewels.


Approximate Measurements (labeled a size 34):  A: 42 3/4",  B: 35 3/4", C: 1 3/4"
