Final Fourth

About this design:

For the last piece of thrift store belt, I decided to just leave the beautiful burgundy-brown finish and not cover it up with paints and ink. But I did paint the edges and cut ends with paint to keep the color uniform. Added a bracelet bar and silver button closure. I also left a longer leather lace so that the buyer could loosen the knot and adjust the fit. Always so tricky when making bracelets. Simple, clean, and beautiful.
Could be unisex??

    Definitely unisex! I have often found fit to be a problem. You get into issues of wearer comfort and preference aside from will it go around the wrist or will it fall off when you put your hand down. Your adjustable sizing is inspired!

    Could definitely be unisex. I love how these can be adjusted – it is always a challenge.

    That $3 belt paid off big time for me. Another really cool bracelet!
