Another of James’ reinterpretations of the longtime scrollwork motif, the Lorien Vines buckle started out as a thick piece of sterling silver that was carved down to create the vine and leaf pattern in relief, to which 14k rose gold vines were added for accent. Beveling at the sides of the vines and leaves gives them a smooth, organic impression that characterizes the aesthetic of the buckle as a whole. A sense of balance arises from the motion and liveliness in the gracefully tapering vines and leaves, a sort of harmony in their organic asymmetry. There is an incredible level of detail on some of the leaves (they almost look like silver castings of real leaves), while the tailing ends of others suggests a subtle touch of Old World artifice; the seamless interplay between these themes whispers an undertone, perhaps, of mysticism.
The Preston Dorset really shows off the silversmiths’ skills. Each strand of the “basket” weave is hand-cut and woven to create the buckle face. Then the long edges are bowed slightly to show off the sterling silver band lining the edges. Inside that outer band is a pop of color provided by round, fourteen-karat, red gold wire. All this results in a buckle unlike any other. Fits all 1.25-inch belt straps.
America’s oldest western silversmiths, Comstock Heritage was founded in 1886. Since then they have been perfecting the art of taking metal from the earth and shaping it into something beautiful. The Stegman family has owned the business since the 1920s, making everything from badges for law enforcement to ornamentation for saddles. Using this storied history and expertise, the craftsmen at Comstock now specialize in one-of-a-kind custom silver and gold pieces. Everything Comstock produces is made entirely by hand, reflecting respect for the materials and care for the family legacy of Comstock Heritage.
