James describes this buckle as follows "Throughout life we are all trying to find our way whether its new jobs, new cities, mixed families, etc. I've found where I fit in, but not everyone feels that way, or is that fortunate. The buckle has a Sterling Silver base, I applied the mulyi- colored golds and platinum in a Jackson Pollock/Joan Miro style, as though the geometric pices were dropped and flung onto the buckle. It was a little more work then that, however that was the general idea! The buckle is finished with blue and yellow diamonds as well as yellow sapphires. In the center of the large splotch in the lower right hand corner is a rare, natural, fancy pink diamond.
The Crossbeam is a Sterling silver square wire "Crossbeam" buckle that has been left classic and untouched.
The BC-1 is a Sterling silver Garrison style buckle with a smooth brushed finish. This buckle fits all 1.5 inch buckles.
The Twist 1.5 Florentine is a Sterling silver 1.5 inch Twist buckle with Florentine pattern engraving.
The Sutro Breaking Down is meant to convey the feeling of losing control. We started with a thick sterling silver base, then joined 18 multi-colored gold and silver wires, different widths and lengths, and pulled them through the back of the buckle. When the wires were secure, we began to experiment with the idea of what it would look like if the design were spinning too fast, what would happen? This was a fun buckle to make, and we're very pleased with the execution. We've curated a large collection of stones at the shop, just waiting for the opportunity. The irradiated blue diamond in the center of the buckle is a perfect touch.
