Here is a Spectacular Sterling Silver Belt Buckle hand wrought by Navajo Allison Snowhawk Lee. Mr. Lee is a Multi Award Winning Artisan. You'll have no trouble gleaning all the information on him you'd like, as his work in sold in the best Galleries. There is tons of information online as well as in Reference Books. This Work of Art was no doubt inspired by watching his Grandmother, who was a Rug Weaver. This Exquisite Heavy Buckle features a Large and Exceptional Manassa Turquoise Rectangular Cabachon. The Stone is worthy of the Masterpiece it's set in. Fully signed for Allison Snowhawk Lee and stamped Sterling.
This Superb Buckle measures 2 3/4" x 1 7/8. The Turquoise measures 40mm x 17.5mm. It weighs in at a hefty 87.3grams. Almost 3 oz. It accommodates a 1 1/2" width belt. The Hinged buckle mechanism is hand wrought and beautifully made. Mr. Lee is a master silversmith who obviously takes great pride in each and every one of his creations. We always like to see a hinged buckle mechanism because it enables the buckle to lay attractively flat against the stomach without sticking out. The buckle is gently curved for the same reason.
