Pokemon, Pokeball

I am not exactly sure what to call this design, except it is a ball/weapon of some sort from the Pokemon cartoons.


Plain and simple: Nebraska.

Aspera Ad Astra

Great design. I loved making the heart/wings. Aspera Ad Astra means
"Through hardships to the stars"

Brass Globs

This particular buckle is an idea presented to me from my father. It took me weeks before I finally attempted it.

Steel backing with globs of brass dripped from a brass brazing rod. Then polished to reveal the shine.

Ironman Medal

First, I didnt make this buckle. This is a medal for finishers of Ironman competitions. It was sent to me to convert to a buckle.

I needed to cut off the top ring which held the neck ribbon, and then used a 2-part epoxy to glue the steel backing which I made to the back of the medal.
