Still Playing with Trash

Hey, you guys. Do me a favor? Tell me what you think. Honestly.

I'm making belts with these charms I put together from bottle caps and images cut from old magazines. Totally fun to make, but would you wear one?  And if you have or know teenagers, would they think something like this is cool? 

Also, the first picture shows the charms on a leather belt, but I'm working on ways to link them into a chain belt.

Which style would be most appealing? Which images?

Please leave a comment. I really want to get this right so I can keep playing with trash.

A) Renaissance Faces

B) Animal Prints
C) Pucci-style Prints
D) Dog faces

Thanks for your help!

I know teenagers will love them and I will ask my boys later what they would want to see on them. I think you can tap into so many things that they are, sports, skateboarding and I'm sure the girls would love the prints. Will get back to you with youthful advise from the source.

I love the animal print! And I like the Pucci-style, too. Great idea. They're all great, J. I think you're onto something here.

Love, P

Well, personally, I'm not going to put anything on this waist that might draw attention to it - and those cute guys definitely would. I would, however, pay big bucks to wear those on my ears. Great earring material! Trust me.

I agree with all of the above. I think teens would like the pucci and animal print better than the faces, but you could also think of other things they are into. Or earings would be cool! Or maybe a necklace? But I think some adults would like the faces. Maybe one with old actress/idols would be cool. Like Marilyn, Audrey, Ingrid, etc... That would be cool. I have a purse with Marilyns face on it, just a fun little thing.

You are so creative!

So creative J!

Ok so I just polled my 6 yr old and her 8 yr old friend. Definitely loved the animal print and the little doggie (oooohhh), but cats would be welcome too. They both loved the bright flower and thought all of those would look better on a chain belt. (So much for historical figures!)

Have you thought about attaching them to handbags?

I like the animal prints and the pucci one.

The faces reminds me of those Catholic Saint charms.

The doggie one would be a specific demographic. Perhaps for sale at dog shows,etc?

Very cute.

Okay, just got this from Lucy: Yes to the Pucci-style, no to the others. For what it's worth!

You never cease to amaze me with your creativity!!!
