The Juniper Belt Buckle
A proper stunner of a piece.
This weighty handmade copper belt buckle, made of 16g copper, framed in hand twisted copper rope wire. A large oval of solid fine silver with life casted juniper branches gives the piece beautiful natural movement. A BEAUTIFUL piece of multi colored Kingman Turquoise, that I picked up directly from the mine in Arizona, draws in the eye. As does all the stamping details throughout, arrows at the N•S•E•W points represent a personal compass for your Slow Ride Home. Weighty hand fabricated belt loop and curved hooks on the reverse to affix your favorite belt to with strength and ease. Given an antiqued patina. This piece is truly one of a kind and super special.

The buckled measures 2 1/4" tall and 2 3/4" across.
The central silver pendant is 1 3/8" tall x 2" across.
The bar across the back, for your belt to wrap over, has an interior diameter of 1 3/4" wide, and 1/4" tall, so belts under that width and thickness, are ideal.
It weighs 2.25 oz.
+ The Slow Ride Home Collection +
My way of processing grief has always been: nature + metal. So, after the passing of my truest companion, Monster Truck, I took the road home, slow. Savoring every new and old road and trail. Letting myself feel small, and connected, and changed, and inspired. I came home and immediately got to work processing that energy, and all of the elements of nature that moved me on the journey, into something tangible and beautiful to share with all of you. Turning nature into metal is the ultimate medicine, and it lets me turn my grief into a shining piece of treasure for others to hold, and that is truly *powerful*. I am thrilled to release this offering to you here, now.
The collection pays homage to the roads I traversed, from CA•NV•AZ•NM•TX - with stones, natural materials, and textures, found and collected in the piece's accompanying state. ✨
