belt and buckle

Sterling buckle, keeper, and leather belt.  Approximately 2.5 inches.  I’ve been out of commission for a bit.  Back in the workshop today for the first time in four months.  It felt really good.  The buckle was previously made, but I manufactured the keeper and cut the belt today.  Not bad for one eye!  Detail highlighting buckle, embellishment, and keeper.Reverse.  Here one can see the dimension and the embellishment.This is the full view of the buckle, belt and the two embellishments.  This can be custom fit to your dimensions.  Note there is only one hole in the belt.  $250

Dutch coffee spoons

Dutch coffee spoons, fabricated Sterling and 14k gold, approximately 5 1/2 inches.

These are the latest addition to the Dutch coffee spoon collection.  They are meant to be “everyday” spoons, unique to the individual, and part of the morning routine.

The detail on the left shows the “vine” embellishment of one and the bowl of the other.  On the right is the opposite end of each.  This end is embellished with a 14 gold knob.


The reverse of both.

belt hanger

Fabricated silver.  Just over an inch long.

Here’s how it functions for me, although, any number of things could be suspended from it.  The idea is based on a medieval practice.  At that time they primarily were used to hang purses (in lieu of pockets).  When wearing a waistcoat the button holes provide the means to anchor a pocket watch chain.  This belt hanger will work when there are no serviceable buttons available.

Detail in which the rivet and decorative ring are very visible.

Silver Cross with Citrine

IMG_8987

This heavy Greek, or Morning Star, cross is fabricated silver. The cross itself is just over an inch long, with the complete piece being just under 2 inches. The citrine stone is set in a silver bezel, with a thin disk of 14k gold behind it for a bit more reflectivity.

The double bail was a different take for me. I think it works. The piece is relatively small, and heavy. The citrine cabochon is only 4mm. I think it is the smallest bezel set I’ve done.

A few more views. It’s mostly what I had in mind.

Fabricated Sterling and 14k gold.  Approx. 5 inches.

This is meant to be an “everyday” spoon, unique to the individual, and part of the morning routine.  The bowl is polished on the front, and the forging marks remain on the reverse.  The bowl is nestled in a square wire frame formed so the corner, rather than the side, of the wire meets.  The end features a heavy, forged square with a 14k gold embellishment in its center.
