Growth rings mark a complete cycle of seasons, or one year, in the tree's life. From summer when growth is slower, to drought, fires, or even when new trees grow and push/lean on the tree.
When I saw a wood slice print from @bryannashgill many years ago in Colorado, I was obsessed with the simplicity of the art and most of all the old tree. I wanted to wear the tree, and I knew one day I’d have to figure out a way to turn the texture of the growth rings into metal. And I did!
The process of casting and designing this belt buckle took love time and attention.
Wood Slice belt buckles are casted in yellow bronze with a brass D ring - this is the ring that goes on the belt strap.
The leather belt strap is not included in the sale. You might have one of these belt straps already in your closet and if you don’t I’ve done some research and found some shops on Etsy that have beautiful belt straps. You will need a belt strap that is 1.5” wide.
Here are some links to the shops I like, just look for your belt size and again make sure the width is 1.5” inches or it will not fit on the belt buckle I made.
I’m also happy to help and find you the belt that fits your style! Just message me or let me know in the notes of your order
