This Scottish thistle womens belt buckle is crafted from a silver plated brass thistle on a brocade fabric background. The buckle base is heavy cast pewter with an oxidized silver plated decorative border. The components are all US made and I have gathered them together to make this stunning design.

The belt is sturdy and stays hooked due to the curvature of the hook piece. It isn't too big, and it isn't too small---3" across and 1 3/4" high. Not overpowering. Just right.

The thistle legend
But why is it that such a proud people as the Scots should choose a humble weed as its national symbol? In truth, no-one knows. There is a legend which relates how a sleeping party of Scots warriors were almost set upon by an invading band of Vikings and were only saved when one of the attackers trod on a wild thistle with his bare feet. His cries raised the alarm and the roused Scots duly defeated the Danes. In gratitude, the plant became known as the Guardian Thistle and was adopted as the symbol of Scotland.
