Above is a picture showing the completed beaded strip for a belt.  Once the beaded strip is removed from the loom, this beaded strip is mounted to the lining leather. Next, the top piece of leather is cut to fit the beaded strip. Once cut the next step is to hand stamp the top leather piece with an arrow pattern. After this process, Don will then cut a stitch grove along the edge allowing the threads to lay below the top of the leather preventing any wear of the threads.
