A completely different – and very handsome – look, created by this couple from a Navajo enclave near Albuquerque.
Warmly gleaming copper, with an overlaid center of hand stamped sterling silver; a marriage made in creative heaven.
The silver center is stamped all over, with a dense pattern that suggests a traditional Navajo weaving (and/or a Victorian-era stamped metal ceiling).
The crisp, beautifully repetitive pattern is framed by a border of equally clean hand stamping.
The intricate texture of the silver is surrounded by the serenely plain, mirror-bright copper of the buckle’s base.
Warm copper against cool silver, and pattern against simplicity, makes for a splendid design.
The buckle will fit a belt up to 1 3/8″ wide.
Beautiful concept, wonderful execution, and a happy price point! This marvelous buckle is a winner on all fronts.
