My DH was about to toss out a leather belt because it was broken. But I couldn't bear to see such good leather go to waste so I rescued it for jewelry making! If you've got similar unloved leather belts in your future, consider doing the same!
What you willl need :
- Punch - rotary leather punch is best. I don't have one so I was forced to use my metal punch which does different sized holes.
- Scissors or other cutting tool
- Eyelets - 3/16" as the leather was thick. If you're not using eyelets, then 1/8" or 3/32" holes will work.
- Eyelet setting tool
