Description

    PRIOR HISTORY
  • This is a continuation-in-part application of application Ser. No. 10/754,198, filed Jan. 9, 2004.
  • FIELD OF THE INVENTION
  • The present invention relates generally to apparel belts and more particularly to fashion belts utilizing multiple parts for decorative customization.
  • DESCRIPTION OF THE PRIOR ART
  • Belt attachment structures allowing attachment of functional elements to belts have been known for quite some time. Many of the prior art belts conceived require functional elements that are specially made to fit the attachment means employed by the belt. Some of these functional attachment belts are disclosed here.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 5,152,013 issued to Johnson discloses a stabilizing belt comprising a pliable belt, means for securing the band about the waist of the forward person of a tandem pair, and at least two discrete hand grip assemblies for the rearward person of the pair. The hand grip assembly utilizes an anchor member adjustably mounted to the belt to carry a loop of material for hand gripping by the reward person.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 5,337,935 issued to Chambonnet discloses a belt structure particularly suited for carrying diving equipment having structure for securing a rigid element that further secures equipment such as a compressed air tank.
  • Apparel belts allowing customization to express beliefs or allegiance to a particular organization such as a sports team have also been previously conceived. These prior art belts also require pieces that are specially made to fit the connecting means employed by the belt. Some of these belts are disclosed here.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 4,617,685 issued to Grandis discloses an ornamental elasticized fabric belt having a number of ornamental discs or medallions arranged in seriatim about the band. The medallions overlap each other giving a unique and expensive appearance to the belt. As the belt is caused to expand, the medallions are caused to move with respect to each other, thus changing the appearance of the ornamentation.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 5,852,829 issued to Relaford discloses an apparel belt with decorative strips which are attachable to the outer side of the belt by a pair of socket elements which engage stud elements located along the length of the belt. The decorative strips are interchangeable and may include different letters or words thereon allowing the wearer to communicate a message.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 6,554,680 issued to Abbondandolo discloses action figures having female connections formed on the back and a belt having a plurality of male connectors so that the action figures may be attached to the belt.
  • Although the belts previously discussed provide means for attaching elements to a belt for functional or aesthetic purposes, the prior art still lacks an attachment structure for belts that accept items that are not specially made for attachment to another item such as a belt. To fulfill this need, the claimed invention provides a clip for retaining preexisting items that may be used to create decorative items such as a fashion belt.
  • As will be described in greater detail hereinafter, the customizable fashion belt of the claimed invention differs from the previously proposed inventions and employs a number of novel features that render it highly advantageous over the aforementioned prior art.
  • SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
  • It is a primary object of the claimed invention to provide a clip for holding a frame, such as the canning screw band of a two-piece canning lid used with canning jars, that may be used in the construction of various arts and crafts.
  • It is another object of the claimed invention to provide a clip for holding a frame that may be linked with other clips to form a chain of frames.
  • It is further object of the claimed invention to provide a customizable fashion belt having a plurality of frames displaying decorative artwork.
  • It is an even further object of the claimed invention to provide a canning screw band charm clip and assembly for displaying decorative artwork through the canning screw band.
  • To achieve these objects as well as others that will become evident after a reading of this specification and viewing the appended drawings, a customizable fashion belt is provided. The customizable fashion belt generally comprises a belt, a plurality of clips, a plurality of connector pieces and a plurality of frames framing various types of decorative inserts.
  • The clips comprise a pair of arms, a pair of shoulders, a pair of receiving slots, a bridge portion and a clasp portion. The arms each have a cutaway portion to facilitate easy removal of the frames and have base portions that coact with the shoulders to retain the frame within the clip. The clamp portions of the arms provide a secondary means for retaining the frame within the clip in the event that the frame is unseated from the shoulders. The shoulders are generally shaped to engage the inner walls of the frame and are spaced by the bridge portion such that the frame seats over the shoulders with a snap fit. The clasp portion forms a second clip that may be used to clip a single clip to another object such as a typical apparel belt. The clip may be used to create other decorative objects such as wall hangings and refrigerator magnets.
  • The frames have at least one side member that frame inserts displayed within the display aperture of the frames. The frames may take the form of canning screw bands used with canning jars giving the fashion belt a unique appearance and provides the additional feature of using a preexisting uniform utilitarian item that 29 million homes already have. A customized fashion belt assembled with canning screw bands provides a fashion accessory with a novel appearance that has not been previously seen.
  • When the clips and frames are used to create a customized fashion belt, the belt is placed through the apertures of the connector pieces and the arms of the clips are then placed through the apertures adjacent the belt. Decorative inserts are then assembled within the frames and the frames are then clipped into place within the clips connected to the belt.
  • Another embodiment of the claimed invention is a clip for removably retaining a canning screw band comprising first and second arms, each having a base portion and a clamp portion spaced at a distance apart for receiving a canning screw band during use. A connector ring receiving slot is positioned between the base portion and the clamp portion of each arm for receiving a connector ring. An arcuate shaped bridge portion connects the base portions of the arms and retains an insert within the canning screw band during use.
  • A further embodiment of the claimed invention is a multiple clip assembly for retaining a plurality of canning screw bands. A first clip has an arm with a base portion and a clamp portion spaced at a distance apart for receiving a canning screw band during use and a first receiving slot positioned between the base portion and clamp portion. A second clip has a second arm with a second base portion and a second clamp portion spaced at a distance apart for receiving a canning screw band during use and a second receiving slot position between the second base portion and the second clamp portion. A connector ring connects the first clip and second clip in linked relation. The connector ring has an openable closure for opening the ring to receive the first receiving slot of the first clip and the second receiving slot of the second clip.
  • An even further embodiment of the claimed invention is a clip for removably retaining a canning screw band during use having two oppositely disposed arms for holding an outer surface of the canning screw band and an arcuate shaped bridge portion connecting the arms. The arcuate shape of the bridge portion retains an insert within a canning screw band during use.
  • A still further embodiment of the claimed invention is a canning screw band charm assembly comprising a clip having two oppositely disposed arms for holding an outer surface of a canning screw band with an arcuate shaped bridge portion connecting the arms. A receiving slot is positioned between the base portion and clamp portion of each arm. A canning screw band is retained by the clip and an insert is retained within the canning screw band by the arcuate shaped bridge portion of the clip. A connector ring in linked relation with the clip having an openable closure for opening the ring to receive the receiving slot of the clip.
