Broken Belt, Copper, and a Crafty Hand.

Katie Schuppler, Mike Connell

It all started with two power balance bracelets between two friends (Mike & Bobby). A few short months later Bobby passed away and Mike still wore his bracelet everyday in his memory. In June of 2014, the bracelet broke and he wanted to get something to replace it. Coincidentally a week or so later his belt broke and he constructed a bracelet out of the leather and some copper, now wearing it in honor of his friend. Introducing Belt & Wire
