Making leather belts will become a better thing when you find a right BUCKLE.
Are you looking for a buckle to go with your project?
I have recently been lucky enough to find a stunning hand painted buckle to go with custom order belt.
WHERE I FOUND MY BUCKLE
Australian artisan Kay FARMER at Nightjar Designs is a unique hand-paint Jewellery artist in Northern Territory, AUSTRALIA
The photo is a pair of hand painted earings for sale for $20 on her Etsy SHOP.

It is designed for a 4cm width belt.
I used it for my HAND CARVED Peony Belt.
Basically a die cast buckle with a hand painted cabochon insert.
Kay hand paints the centre piece for beautiful design.
She secures it in the place with a bracket and screws on back.
The buckle feels heavy in your hand and feels very rigid and sturdy and well suited for hand made leather belt.
