About

I have been doing lapidary work for about 33 years and I'm constantly refining my belt buckles. I cut, form and polish all the buckles and fabricate the silver backings for each buckle. I started out using brass and that is why some of my early work has brass.From start to finish the one piece buckles take a minimum of four hours not counting design and layout. The insets and intarsia buckles can take eight to fifteen hours.
