1, 2, Buckle My???

It has been a minuet since my last post and I have been a busy little bee running around all over the place. Thankfully I have managed to make a few more buckles since I last posted and I guess it's time to show off the new pieces!

I really like the way these pieces have been turning out. Each one is completely unique and 100% hand fabricated with all sorts of intentionally visible imperfections to accentuate the hand crafted qualities. I have been dying to completely finish one of these pieces with a patterned leather belt (the way I usually complete my buckles) but so far I have been unable to due so.

The first filigree buckle got snatched up by Kaylee and I have decided to let her fabricate the belt for that buckle. CLICK HERE to read about Kaylee's plan for the belt to go with the buckle. The other two buckles have already been purchased and will be fitted with a bought leather belt by the client. I guess I will just have to make more buckles, as I also want to put some of these beauties for sale on my Etsy shop. CLICK HERE to see what is currently for sale on my Etsy shop.

First three filigree belt buckles.
I guess that about sums up this blog post but I am sure I will have lots of exciting news to share soon so I will be back with more very soon.
until next time,
Peace and Love
