Belts

Recommended Posts

Kinda old school with the pattern - 10oz English bridle leather, overdyed cobra panels, vintage 50s glass jewels, Japanese repro buckle and vintage brass hardware …

More bridle leather- this time a 4th belt for @meaterball2020 on IG - a much more straightforward affair in that there’s no pattern, but it’s been burnished black and edge painted and it’s an odd sized width (36mm) to accommodate a hand forged sterling silver buckle

… and a second belt for my friend Jill on IG - this for her husband and made from J&FJ Baker bridle in Russet with brass spots making up his initials at the buckle end, and solid brass buckle with that sewn on using MeiSi superfine linen thread (0.45mm) at 8SPI to give a clean unobtrusive finish

J&FJ Baker Oak Bark Bridle, Russell’s Viper Skin Overlays with hand painted marquetry centre panels, Jeffrey Fritch hand engraved sterling silver buckle, sterling silver Hong Kong 1902 10 cents coin minted in Tower Hill, nickel plated hardware and 1950s vintage glass … I think that covers it …

Overdyed J&FJ Baker Oak Bark Bridle, Harrison Bitsue sand cast sterling silver buckle set with Kingman turquoise, a completely random stud pattern that’s supposed to have a slow but not supposed to look planned (and absolute c-nt of a thing to design - no lines are parallel, no curves are replicated etc), and because the pattern needed an 1 ½” strap and the buckle fits an 1 1/4” strap the belt is a hybrid ranger setup
