  • All the way back in 2009 we had a fortuitous meeting with sculptress Marcela Ganly whose body of work focuses predominantly on the animal world. However, our mutual passion for belts inspired us to try and adapt her wonderful sculpting skills and our design experience to suit the rather smaller format of a belt buckle. Several months and many trips to the foundry later we came up with our first collection of bronze and Silver Plated buckles, each one limited edition signed and numbered. This year we branch away from the land and into the sea for the first time with this Octopus design buckle. This fluid shaped piece with its bead effect suction cup detailing and flowing tentacles has a wonderfully liquid feel to it - you can almost sense the octopus gliding elegantly through the water. Of course it also has the most wonderful, tactile 3 dimensional feel. This bronze buckle with its naturally patinated finish gives a warm, antique feel and its elongated shape gives it a sleek profile that will flow along the line of your belt - ideal for both casual or smarter occasions. It makes for a statement buckle that will always draw admiring looks and truly looks like a work of art. Numbered, Limited edition of 100 pieces.** Please note that these buckles are hand cast from wax and hand finished - no two buckles will ever look or be quite the same so please understand that there will likely be colour/patina variances from the image shown.

  • How it's made
    Buckle making remains a remarkably traditional skill with most of our designs initially crafted by hand in wax before being melted away to create a mould from which we can cast your buckle. Once cast the buckle is then sent away for the galvanic process which gives it its colour and then any additional details such as enamel or crystals are applied by hand. Whether being made in Italy, France, Mexico, USA or the UK the techniques used remain the same.
