Hand-forged stainless steel: strength, resilience, reliable. The circle: unity, totality, original perfection, eternity, and timelessness. The marriage of these two symbols results in an amulet of conscious intention. An emblem, full of power & meaning, handmade in every sense of the word.
We asked our metalsmith Nathan Kimpell to forge this Rustic Stainless Steel Circle Buckle this spring, 2020. This buckle represents a visual reminder of cycles: beginning and ending, changing, morphing, on-going. A beautiful work of art, forged and hammered into shape, one at a time, in Missoula, Montana in Nathan's shop. The leather has been cut by hand and assembled by our hands, in our shop just up the road.
We paired this buckle with our 8-10 oz. Natural Brown Chromexcel leather. In keeping with the uniqueness of the buckle, we had to come up with an equally artistic way to attach the buckle to the strap. We hope you enjoy the uniqueness of this creation.
HANDCRAFTED IN THE USA
