Strapped Belt GUEST GIVEAWAY!!!! CLOSED.

February 11, 2010

Oooo, so many to choose from! Today's guest giveaway comes from Strapped Belts! The winner will choose a glass buckle from over a hundred handmade options with a colored belt to match! Worth over $65!

John Frechette launched Strapped Belts® in 2008 as a result of life's twists and turns. After his employer went bankrupt, he was "Strapped" for cash and "Strapped" for a job.

Originally from Boston, Frechette attended The Taft School in Connecticut then, Amherst College in Massachusetts. His career path started on Wall Street and landed him in Jackson Hole, WY. John has always had an interest in Photography and Painting but it was not until he arrived in Jackson Hole that he fell in love with glass.



Kiln formed glass started as an attempt to explore a new medium and has turned into a passion. John has studied under glass artists and instructors including Richard Parrish of Fusio Studio in Bozeman Montana, Bonnie Celeste of Bullseye Glass in Portland Oregon and Charlotte Potter of Charlotte Potter Design in Providence Rhode Island.

Focusing on good technique and contemporary design, Frechette has created a line of handmade wearable art.

Starting with fused and kiln formed glass belt buckles, Strapped hit the ground running.
Demand for the accessories line quickly allowed for expansion into earrings, cufflinks, pendants and rings. Strapped also has a line of kiln formed plates, and tableware.

Want to catch the latest from Strapped? Check out John Frechette on his personal website and Facebook.
And until Feb. 14 enter XOXOXO at checkout and receive 20% off your order!

I've always coveted glass belt buckles but they've always been too expensive for me :( And there are so many to choose from I'd probably have a hard time stopping at buying just one belt.
