Beaded Belt

Click on image for enlarged view.

Melinda Carriker notes, "This belt uses size 4 mm French glass beads and is based on a picture of Washington Delegates. The gentleman seated on the left side of the photo has a beaded belt on. I made the belt using the loom-free beading technique and sewed it to a leather backing, using artificial sinew for all of it."
