Transform old belts into handmade jewelry

   Jules and I saved our rainy yard sale outing last Saturday by going to some thrift stores.
   I found a couple of belts and a necklace at a next to nothing cost so I had to get them. I knew there had to be many creative possibilities in everything from the string to the beads on each one.

   I decided to ask followers on Google+ what they would suggest. I like the layered wrist wrap suggestion I got. I just might have to try that.
   Today I made a stretchy bracelet from the wood-looking rectangle beads on one of the belts. I added some small glass beads for color.

   I've made bracelets from belts before. Check out these past blog posts to see them.
