I took this vintage Nocona belt and I removed the buckle, slide and tip.
For this project I decided to use just the buckle and the tip to make into two separate necklaces. I was also able to use the leather on the belt to make several cuff bracelets and the slide for a unique napkin ring.
I took some soft blue leather that I had and I glued it into the belt tip. I then added a beautiful silver rolo chain that I re-purposed from a vintage Brighton chain belt. All together it made a unique and beautiful necklace.
I then had to decide what to hang in this beautiful buckle. I had this unique concho that I took off of another vintage Nocona belt. It was the perfect fit for this project so I converted it into a pendant and hung it in the buckle. I then added a silver wheat chain that I re-purposed from a vintage Brighton chain belt to finish this unique one of a kind necklace. This is just one example of what I can do for you with a belt buckle. Check out the Gallery for examples of other projects that I have done.
