Stained glass belt

I started off thinking I was making a necklace out of tubular peyote.  Lot of bright colors, and some matte black for a stained glass look.  However, when I finished, I realized that it was not flexible enough for the neck.  So.....  add a little braided suede, and voila, it's a belt!  It's 5 feet long, and so can be worn by folks with a variety of waist sizes.  The beaded portion is 17 inches.  You can, of course, find the belt in my Etsy shop. :D  I'm pretty pleased with it, and will probably have to make more at some point.
