Johnson & Held Nickle Silver Longhorn Handcrafted Buckle
Johnson & Held Nickle Silver Longhorn Handcrafted Buckle is composed of nickle silver, black resin and ironwood. Our artisans hand cut the nickel silver using a jeweler's saw. We engrave the border by hand to add an extra level of detail that causes different places in the nickel silver to catch and reflect the light. We hand inlay each piece of black and red on the puffed chest of the buckle. A unique buckle unmatched in craftsmanship.

For over thirty years we have made our buckles by hand in our workshop in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. We hope you love wearing them as much as we love making them.
: When we say handcrafted, we mean every process is done by hand. We use a jeweler’s saw to cut the metal. A jeweler’s saw is about the size and shape of a paint roller. The blade looks like a straightened paper clip with edges. We inlay stone and wood with tweezers. When our engraver, he rotates his wrist to drive a screwdriver like tool into the metal. He focuses on every individual mark. We practice an old craft and do fine work.
: Folks say the devil is in the details. This is detailed work. Every handcrafted buckle is a unique piece of art. When you buy a handcrafted buckle, you buy it to make a statement.
The difference between a cast buckle and a handcrafted buckle : Each handcrafted buckle takes several hours to create. Each buckle requires meticulous construction by our craftsmen. Cast buckles require crafting one mold and then replicating each buckle. There is craftsmanship in casting as well, but it’s a different style of buckle. Here’s an analogy. Buying a cast buckle is like buying a poster or print. Buying a handcrafted buckles is like buying an original painting.
