Greenbelts' Recycled Leather Cuffs, Collars

Seattle artist and child wrangler Shannon Ritscher retools used leather belts into mean-looking biker cuffs and rhinestone-encrusted studded collars for both humans and non-humans alike. Many of the embellishments Ritscher uses, including bottle caps, buttons, washers, and springs are also part of her larger plan to take back the landfill. And Girlfriend may look like a soccer mom on her profile page, but you know she could totally take you out with her pinkie finger. Punk.

Prices start at an easy $17. More pictures below. ::Etsy
