Something a little different from the usual leathers and denim – a solid copper belt buckle hand-made by silversmith Jaime of Bella-Bijou Jewellery, Vancouver, Canada.
I’m not usually a flower man, but the Prunus Mume is the nation flower where I was born, and is a very special flower!
IIRC it is technically an apricot, and not a plum…but that’s beside the point.
Would love to have a few trees when I eventually get my own backyard, but in the meantime I had Jaime cut out the blossom for me on the buckle.
Absolutely fantastic hand-worked details in everything from the brass & copper rivets to the oxidised depths.
Certainly a lot of time & effort went into this buckle.
That copper and brass, yummmmm……
I can only see this fantastic piece of metal look better with age 🙂
