Fold formed and Repousse’ copper belt buckles. I have been having some fun the last couple of days playing with copper. To make these buckles I have made the tooling to make the impression and hammered all of the lines into them.
The buckle below is hand formed in a style called repousse’ raising and sinking the copper into a pattern and forming the into sandbags or pitch to form the finial form.
NAK Designs, Inc. has been trying to come up with some new ideas of buckles and to take a new angle on how to make them. Keep watching for new buckles to come soon. Yes these will be for sale send me an email if you are interested in any.
