All of our belt buckles are individually hand-forged       970 319 1697     Updated 10/8/20

At the moment I have very limited stock inventory available, (see links below) and NEW service I'll also be re-selling used pieces for clients at a lower cost to the public. Both will be posted as I have them available.


It's happened I'VE RETIRED.

However, I will continue to produce work part-time on a mail order-only basis. Please plan ahead to allow for shipping time. There is no longer any place in the RF Valley where these can be picked up.


Because I don't have a set schedule, I'm unable to promise delivery per your deadlines.

I will maintain a waiting list and I will contact you  when I am able to make your order to see if you are still interested.

At the moment I am booked out until Spring 2021.


I will keep some limited inventory of small items in stock and they will be posted on this website.

Finished belt buckles for immediate purchase will also be posted.


Pricing changes. Metal markets are going crazy, and at the moment Silver has increased 71% and Gold 66%. I have not instituted any upwards price changes in 18 years so I guess it is overdue. Find current pricing HERE: Buckles  or Accessories


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