      Buckles, Bolos and Barbed Wire: The Art of the Buckle

      Belt buckles may not fit perfectly into the category of jewelry, but they can certainly be considered wearable pieces of art. In this full-day workshop you will learn to make a very personalized belt buckle for yourself or a special someone. Although the examples shown are decidedly Western in look, your challenge will be to create a buckle that reflects your own aesthetic. The common elements will be to have a pierced brass overlay and edge embellishments ... beyond that, the design choices are up to you. Buckles are a great way to showcase a special stone, coin, or other object. Find examples of non-Western buckles with a simple Google search. Sawing and soldering skills required.
