Leather and Metal Bracelet

This bracelet reminds me of something I might buy on an indian reservation. Who knew that an old belt and some buttons from Wal-Mart could look so exotic.
 Measure your wrist then add two inches to allow for the closure. Arrange the buttons until you are pleased with the spacing Transfer the button holes to the leather with a sharp pen. I used a large nail make the holes.
 Cut thin lacing from a scrap of leather. It helps to cut the end at an angle.
 Thread the buttons onto the strap.
 Tie the leather laces in square knots (right over left/left over right) then cut off the ends.
Use rivets and a pop rivet gun to close the bracelet.
I can see this paired with a Ralph Lauren outfit. Too cool!
