Each buckle is made from cast components which are then individually assembled to create a unique buckle variation every time. With different combinations of flower and leaf patterns and your chosen options of contrasting metals, like gold and silver, a Big Sky Buckle becomes a piece unique to you. Each buckle is sold packed in a plain wooden box.
Each piece of Jade, also known as Greenstone or Pounamu, is selected for its unique characteristics. Pricing depends on the options you choose including having a cut out section behind the stone with a koru pattern, having the jade carved, which metals you wish to use and any areas you may wish picked out with gems. Jade carving requires an estimate and an additional 2-3 weeks production time - Price guide for the buckle shown here is $1,899
