I'm currently making a belt made of smaller peyotes...all the peyotes are made with fishing line so they don't stretch, but they are going to be sewn onto a thin piece of elastic...I just thought that was easier considering whats going to be on the belt.

Peyote. Ladders bend weirdly so that there are gaps and the string pulls oddly. In making a belt, I usually start with a flat peyote about 6 rows across and then go on until it's long enough for a belt. Stars probably wouldn't work because they flare out when attached to each other.

I fail immensely with anything besides multi. You could just start it off as one giant multi cuff if you don't like peyote. I just attached mine to my buckle after putting the first initial row on and then started it as if it were a cuff. How it turned out: http://kandipatterns.com/photo-page/kandi-belt-3/19799

I'd say peyote for the "simplest", but they're all pretty simple and so easy to experiment with (provided you have a lot of beads and string, haha) I like it when people make big peyote things as "belt buckles"!! You can also try X-cuff too (see the third link). Or you can take a regular belt, and string tons of singles and cuffs on it? If you search "belt" on this site, there's a lot of cool things out there. Here are some things that catch my eye randomly: http://kandipatterns.com/photo-page/pacman-belt-/13410 http://kandipatterns.com/photo-page/3d-nyan-cat-with-belt-d/20522 http://kandipatterns.com/photo-page/x-base-kandi-belt-veiw-3/10425
