The Blank-Slate Belt

Ever have an outfit in need of a belt but you don't have any that match it?  Sometimes that happens to me and then I have to start from square one.  Then I thought, if I had a plain belt that I could add easily add coordinating embellishments to, it might be easier to pull an outfit together.  Thus, this project was born.

Chic Pearls and Ribbons

Make a Statement Necklace
