Sterling silver buckles and jewelry

Vintage, Native American made, or both, as well as custom-made one-offs made by me, entirely by hand.

If you need a belt for one of these buckles, please ask.
 I can either make one or in some cases have vintage leather belt blanks in stock.

To purchase any of these or other buckles or to ask questions about custom work, please email pdgm at 2wheelfetish dot com.

longhorn buckle
Above: A nice vintage longhorn buckle. The back is nickel silver that's been hand engraved with a lasso and horseshoes; the bull's head is sterling silver. American made; good looking; shows "beausage"; this just adds to the vintage good looks of the buckle.
This is the kind of Americana vintage that famous designers try to copy, usually with cheesy looking results.
For a 1 1/8 inch belt.

Below: Navajo made sterling buckle, oval and hand tooled.
Signed LM and marked sterling on the back.
