It's been quite a while since I've been able to burn any silver, with work 'n' all.  Just finished up this buckle for a M/C repair shop and cafe owner.................I had the name engraved into the edge but they couldn't get it deep enough so the oxidation didn't hold.................. dunno

3" diameter



GD Terrapin Bolt Buckle, sterling on sterling...............

Very nice Steve. I really like the tree silhouette on the black oxidation. I think the letters will stand out after wear and oxidation starts. Nice job. yes Eric(Ajo)
