This buckle is copper with nickel silver findings. I hammer texture the horse and rider then saw out the design. After the horse and rider are sawed out, I sand and clean up all the edges and flow solder across the entire back of the piece. Then I solder that whole piece down to the back plate. I’ve updated this design slightly by sawing out the space between the horse and rider’s arms from the back plate. Finally I hammer out the back so it has that appealing curve and then solder the findings onto the back. I’ve included an image with the other two options so you can easily see the size comparisons.
This design is available in two other sizes as well as two other variations of metal. Please see the store to view the other options.
