A couple of resources:
http://www.finds.org.uk/database (use this site to find crotal bells found in England -- though it can find A LOT of things) ;-)
FWIW, I don't know of any resources that have specific examples of what the baldric or belt were _definitely_ made of, but there are other medieval belts and other accessories that might inspire avenues for re-creation; see http://larsdatter.com/belts.htm or http://larsdatter.com/wide-belts.htm for example.
