Now taking orders for 2024

All of our belt buckles are individually hand-forged       970 319 1697     Updated 12/20/23

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.


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


IN ASPEN: Some Aspen Leaf jewelry is available at Valley Fine Art, 213 S Mill St, Aspen (970)920-9193 Valley Fine Art is also having a Belt Buckle Sale of animal and fish buckles, marked down 60%.


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.
