I was contacted by a New York City fashion designer to make 16 buckles of their logo: Factory Downtown. http://factorydowntown.com/
The original idea was to make it just like the logo. I had these plasma cut then added the ring and hook. Painted it black and hand painted the "Downtown" .
Ultimately we decided on a natural look with the "Downtown" painted green. The customer felt that it would be seen easier if it was natural as opposed to black. I finished all sixteen, hand painted each one, and gave him the sample.
