Fresh Pick: “Santa 's Belt”

Posted by limabeads on December 07 at 04:29 pm

This Fresh Pick was designed by Deb Harding on Dec. 7, 2012.

Deb Harding says: Santa Belt ornaments are my favorite. So I was really only having a little fun and trying to draw a picture with beads. Then I got to thinking about it...hmmm... a multi strand necklace of red beads with two center strings of black that had a buckle and then more red strings would be cute.
Sorry belt buckle is off center lol.

    Ohhh this is hilarious, and it’s perfect that the buckle is off centre makes it more “alive”. :D

    This is fantastic. I love red and Santa’s suit is the perfect subject for something red – especially this time of year.

    Thanks everyone. I was mostly having fun but I’m still thinking it would be kinda cute in seed beads with a tiny buckle. Maybe a bracelet not a necklace.

    Wonderful. Several strands of red converging into the buckle would be great for a bracelet.

    Fun pick, Deb! What about a watch buckle? You could recycle one from an old watch band.

    Santa has had to move his buckle over a few notches after all the cookies and milk. Makes perfect sense to me. =D
    Really cute pick. Merry, merry everyone.

    Deb, great pick :) Love red; my favorite.
    Re: tiny buckle. Try looking for tiny pet collars (for puppies or kittens) which can sometimes be found at thrifts stores or at salvage or dollar stores for cheap :) They might be tiny enough.
