Earlier this year Montana Silversmiths held a buckle design contest. We were intending on picking just ONE buckle but the designs were so great that we ended up choosing two! This week our pick for the Classic Buckle Winner Erin DeGroot, received her buckle. And she was sweet enough to share a picture of her with her new buckle!
Our designers took Erin’s submitted drawing (shown below) and altered the design so that it would work for our process. The original you can see had two naturally shaped pieces of turquoise, our master engraver decided switch those for four Swarovski® Zirconia stones at each of the directional points. Other than that the buckle remained pretty true to the drawing.
This buckle is currently up on our Buckle Builder #33100 for the silver finished one, like Erin is holding. We also included a two tone version with silver and bright yellow gold finishes and your choice of figure and stone color. It’s truly a great buckle and one that has a great story behind it, which is even better!
You can see all the various buckle options here on this page, both ready to ship and custom order.
We can’t wait to show you the Trophy Buckle Winner coming in 2018. You can see more about the buckle winners here.
