Mokume buckles

Mokume is made much like damascus, you take two or three different metals, weld them together using the right amount of heat, and draw it out till you get the layer count and or pattern you want.

This mokume is made from nickel silver, copper, and brass. I buy this in sheets from Chad Nichols of Blue Springs, Mississippi. The initials are sterling silver.

I make my hangers using 3/16" stainless steel tubing, and 1/8" stainless rod. This way seems to make the buckle fit your belly a little better, and it will fit any thickness belt you want to use to hold your pants up.
