Now taking orders for 2024

Jess Bates, owner. metalsmith

All of our belt buckles are individually hand-forged       970 319 1697     Updated 5/14/24

It's happened I'VE RETIRED.

However, I will continue to produce belt buckles part-time on a mail order-only basis (part of retirement meant moving to a more affordable location and I currently live in Ashland OR). Please plan ahead as availability is very limited.  See 'In Stock' pages on menu bar for what is available.


2024 is our 75th Anniversary!!! And my personal 40th anniversary making belt buckles since 1984.
See a special Limited Edition buckle offering HERE.


There is still a local's Discount. See guidelines HERE.


NEW service I'll be re-selling used items for clients at a lower cost to the public. They will be posted as I have them available in the 'Buckles in Stock' page.

My schedule varies seasonally so I can't accommodate deadline dates. Now taking belt buckle orders for 2024.


Thank you all for your loyal support and patronage, it’s been a pleasure.
