Kaganfindel War Belt by Shendorion Kaganfindel War Belt by Shendorion
Here's the front panel of the belt I designed to match my heavy bracers, with straps on the side to accept a belt pouch or two.

The leather is ~14 oz. veg tan, set with green stones, stitched with sinew and fastened with a pair of brass buckles from some belts I picked up at Goodwill. The buckles are placeholders until I can source a pair of forged iron ones.

Very nice! I like how you combined the different textures and stains. I've never seen stones bezel set into leather like that before - are they fairly secure?

Thank you! They're drilled through and sewn into the circular panel with waxed linen thread, so that you'd need to rip the stitches to get them out.

This is really beautiful! I really like the lovely warm tones you used.

I read in your other comments that you diluted antique mahogany stain with water. If I do that with my Eco-Flo mahogany antique its a cooler purple/wine color. Is there something in particular that you did differently when applying the antique to get the warmer tones?

The color of the leather before it's stained can change the character of the staining - when I used a newer, pinker hide I got the same cooler tint. It all ends up the same warm tone after a couple of applications of lanolin and mink oil, though.

Thank you for the explanation! I was wondered if I was missing something. I will add lanolin and mink oil to my list of things to pick up. :)
