The Process

Jewelry made to fuel your soul and liven your spirit.

Repurposing old leather belts or hand bags into jewelry has been so rewarding. I love to see life brought back into something that is outdated or forgotten but still has years left in them.

Jewelry can be made from your very own lost and forgotten leather belts and handbags or from a special person’s leather hand bag or belt. Options are endless.

Each item is a custom design just for you, making your new jewelry piece(s) uniquely yours.

Maybe you just lost a significant amount of weight and you have a belt that no longer serves you. That belt can be made into jewelry to celebrate your wins and help to remind you that you are amazing.

Maybe your favorite person is no longer here and you happen to have a leather hand bag or belt of theirs lying around. Now these items can become memory jewelry, making the jewelry the bridge between you and your special person….connecting two beautiful souls.

A unique way to celebrate special people in your life. Jewelry made specially for you that you can cherish for years to come.

Many times you acquire items that belongs(ed) to someone in your life who rocks(ed) your world or who is/was a huge influence to your very well being.

I remember when I was a kiddo, I was given a couple of my grandma’s dresses that she didn’t want anymore and boy, did I love dressing up in them! I would pretend I was a great cake baker like grandma (because MY grandma baked the best cakes… moist and yummy). I no longer have those dresses but I do have some of her baking utensils, and when I use them, I feel close to her as if she’s guiding me through recipe.

Having a piece of jewelry made from one of their leather belts or handbags you can capture memories like this one. When you wear your bracelet or earrings I create specially for you from their belt or handbag you can keep those treasured memories close and feel their love during times you need it most.

When it all began……

Two things happened that made this project come to light.

My pops passed and I miss him dearly, I happened to acquire a couple of his belts and I sat wondering what can I do with these.

As I was pondering ideas, a friend of mine called and said “I have my dad’s belt and would like you to make earrings or something out of it.”

And that’s when Connecting Souls was created.

My friend was in tears when I delivered her bracelet and earrings. I could feel her emotions and see how the connection to her dad was going to live on in her new jewelry pieces made from his belt.

That moment my eyes also filled with tears as I watched her place the band around her wrist. I knew I needed to do this project as much for me as for you.
