What do you do with that old braided leather belt - or any old belt for that matter - that's hiding in the back of your closet? Rip it apart, save the buckle, and make a new belt strap with beads! In this case, the buckle is adapted for a bracelet, and the design would work just as well on a watchband.

Tools Needed: Beading needles, scissors, straight or T-pins, macrame board. See project for complete list.
