Drawing inspiration from cell structure diagrams, this unique copper buckle is created with a technique called foldforming (for the curious, find it explained here: http://www.brainpress.com/Foldforming.html). Our foldformed and enameled buckles are unique pieces of wearable art- you will find them nowhere else!

Repeated folding, hammering and chasing turn a single piece of copper into this exquisitely textured object. Copper 'cells' created from the process have been colored a bright blood red with vitreous enamel. Entire buckle is framed in a thin slice of blackened steel pipe. Bare copper has been oxidized and sealed with museum wax for a soft luster.

Measures 3 1/2 inches in diameter. Accepts belts to 1 3/4 inches wide.
As always, expertly crafted to last a lifetime.
