            Thank-you for the wonderful compliments!!!!!!!!!! I have to admit I am soooooooo glad to finally have finished this belt.

            Where does everyone get their buckles from I checked everwhere locally and can't find any!!! I know Crazy crow has them, but I hate to order something and pay $7 shipping for $3 worth of buckles!!!!!!!!!!!!

            Hmmm maybe an excuse to order more stuff!!!!!! ;) Think my wife will go for that?????:Chatter

            BlackBear, Pam says for the right price..............maybe:Yell
            I told her, if she sells it, she has to make the replacement!!!!!!:Chatter

            YEA she's spoiled!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! BIG TIME!!!!!!!:o

                  There are a several places around here that I get buckles. Try looking to see if you have a shop in your area that makes belts or repairs shoes (i.e., a cobblers shop) there are still folks out there that do this and I have been able to find them everywhere that I have lived over the years. Another good place to look is places that sell horse tack equipment. Sometimes it has to be in the surrounding areas but they are there.

                  If you absolutely can't find them then so to close out stores like Big Lots or Value City and look for pet collars. You can also find those cheap and just cut the collar in two and use it that way.

                  Happy hunting

                    Tandy Leather has recently started to reopen retail stores across the country. You can go to their web site and find locations. They came out with a new type of buckle that I LOVE!!!! The introductory price was 24cents each I bought out the Oklahoma City and Sacramento stores about three months ago.

                    They also have a new tool for setting silver spots into thick leather. You just put the spot in the tool and one hammer strike it goes through the leather and crimps itself on the under side. This thing is slicker than snot! and worth every penny (if you do a lot of them like I do.)

                    Hope that helps.

                          Thank-you. Pam has already talked me into doing a barette to match the belt. It will be the same as the middle rose. She gonna have a whole outfit done before I even start on mine at this rate!!!!!!!!! Hope she tells everyone at the powwows Joe don't have any beadwork cause he's always working on my stuff!!!!!!!!!!!! LOL Gotta love spoiled wives!!!!

                            That is an awesome belt. Very well done...I salute. What kind of beads did you use? Is this part of a set?


                            • #15
                              I used 12/0 seed beads.

                              When I get it all done it will be a set. This was the first piece. My wife has talked me into doing a hair piece using the center rose. Only problem is she wants to wear it at the end of the month!!!!

                              MAN She did it to me again!!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!

                                Mounting A Beaded Belt?
                                by Kiowa-J
                                Hi, I have several belt strips that I have made. I have been curious on how to exactly mount these, 2 Would be for pow wows and one as a man's dress belt. I've asked around in my area and no one was quite sure on how to do it. any suggestions? Here's the pictures of the strips i have.

                                I want to make beaded harness and drops but here are my questions

                                How do i measure for harness and drops?
                                how do i attach them? all together as an H or one hook/belt style in the back leaving the loops for arms?

                                I'm assuming i then sew the beads onto leather or fabric...

                                by fishingbear
                                I need help getting started !

                                I have beaded my own crown...but have never worked on beading leather...

                                Special needles for leather?
                                Bead on felt and then mount it on the leather?

                                Any help, suggestions or tips I would greatly appreciate!
