her belts. Each belt is designed and built to provide

18 Hour Belt Base
Aunty has developed a design
that is as comfortable after a full day of wearing as it is when
you put it on. Her "18 Hour Belt" is noisy and heavy
duty, yet light enough for serious wear. They are made with SCA members and Renaissance Faire
participants in mind. Designed for all day wear and easily layered
over a favorite hip wrap or tassel belt, the "eighteen hour"
belt can be performed in, sat in, and lounged in - in comfort.
They are also perfect for a full day of shopping at dance festivals
and can look stunning when worn with everyday clothing!
Tribal Jewelry Pieces
Aunty Magpie integrates lucious
tribal jewelry pieces into her designs. These form dramatic focal
points and add color and movement to her belts. Her selection
of pieces varies and each is unique and come from India, Afghanistan,
Arabia and accross North Africa.
If you own a beautiful piece
that you adore and want to integrate it into a belt, Aunty is
pleased to help. She can add your jewelry to a standard belt
base or integrate it into a custom design. Contact her for details.
Aunty uses a vast selection
of world coins in the design of her products. From her hoard,
she carefully selects individual coins based on their size, imagery
and patina. Every belt has a different selection of coins making
each one a unique work of art.
If you have a collection of
world coins that you want to transform into a belt, Aunty will
be happy to turn your own hoard into a functional piece of wearable
Aunty uses heavy duty, high
quality nickel plated steel chain in the design of swags and
closures. She uses heavy duty clasps and sturdy brass jump rings
during her construction process to ensure a long life span for
her belts and accessories.
Bells add another dimension
of sound, movement and shine to a belt. Aunty uses a bells of
different sizes, shapes and metals to enhance the sounds
Aunty will also repair or
augment existing coin belts. Here is a vintage Cost Less coin
belt. Aunty added series of bells added to increase the amount
of shine and jingle on this beautiful design.
