This is an extraordinary buckle that I made for the Easton Waterfowl Festival.
I harvested goose eggshells from which goslings had hatched. I cleaned, ground, sorted, and sifted them, then formed them into a block. Hand tools were used to cut out slabs, then goose shapes, that I embedded into a resin brick.
After filing, sanding polishing, and waxing, the eggshell-and-resin biscuit was epoxied into a cast bronze base. Each buckle is unique- no two are identical. This is a very unusual mixed media unification of materials. Made with hand tools, hallmarked by me, 2.25 inches diameter.
This buckle is partnered with a full grain buffalo leather belt. Buffalo is thicker, softer, more flexible, stronger, and resists abrasion better than cow leather. Read more about your 1.5 inch wide buffalo leather belthere.
Note: Belt size is waist size in inches, plus 2.

I personally make everything. If I am in the studio, then it might take a few days. If I am in the field it can take a bit longer. Don't hesitate to shoot me an email and inquire. If I am in e-range, I will reply.
