09 August 2010New Buckle Designs

I've been continuing to work on buckles, experimenting with new designs and materials. The cogs and chain were obvious, I've added spokes and pieces of tire now as well.

It's definitely a lot of fun working on these, thinking up new designs and ideas. People have been responding well to them at the Saturday Market, sold 7 this weekend! They look even better once they are on a belt. I even had one stolen this weekend, at first I was annoyed, it's pretty disrespectful, but in another way it's a weird kind of compliment. Someone liked it enough (I hope) to risk stealing it from the person who made it. At least that's how I'm looking at it.
