Sterling Silver Hand Engraved Belt Buckles!

                                                 Engraved Sterling Silver Belt Buckles

 Sterling silver hand engraved buckles- What a lost art and hard to find. Antique pieces are used to make a mold and then the buckles are cast in the lost wax process.

This is a one-at-a-time, hand crafted process.  First the mold is filled with liquid wax and allowed to harden.  Then the mold is opened, the wax extracted and hand finished to remove any blemishes.  Then the wax is put into a canister surrounded by 'investment' molding material.  When the perfect temperature is reached, the wax becomes liquid again and runs out of the mold (thereby being "lost") and the molten silver fills the space left by the wax.

When cool, the canister is opened and the investment removed, your buckle is left where the wax once stood.  The hardware is soldered on and everything is hand polished to a mirror finish--ready for your monogram.  Then the hand engraving process is done to finish each beautiful product. Each piece has a special story!!!
Each sterling silver buckle comes with  a beautiful crocodile finished leather belt strip. You can choose either black or brown and your size. Sizes run 30- 40 and each belt has four holes for adjustments.

These items ship from Dallas, TX.  Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery for these custom items.

My Favorite Things! Plus it is ok to live "Outside the Box"!

  Since The Pink Monogram is new at blogging ( really it is Monica), I thought I would show everyone my favorite things!  I tried to add them all in one picture so you could get a good idea of me! The combo is Monogrammed Clogs Chanel No5, Lilly Pulitzer, Costa Sunglasses, and my Louis Vuitton. Yes, The Pink Monogram did monogram my LV Bags.  I did it this am after much thought and decided that I really needed to carry something that we monogram in the store. I tried the classic Block Serif.  Before I have floods of people asking me to monogram their LV I would prefer not too!!  I still love the way mine turned out. When I
was in Atlanta last month at the LV Store I noticed they are doing monogramming. It is printed not embroidered on the bags!  The Monogrammed Clogs on the left are brown leather and have a hand painted leopard high heel.  My new favorites are on the right and are called Bomber Jacket!  Those are on a brown high heel.  Those are not monogrammed.  The leather was just sent in and I made me a pair really quickly. Love that new color. It reminds me of an old pair of my Frye Boots!!
Close up of the Embroidery done on my LV Computer Case!
Here is one of my many pairs of Main Line Jeans from Lilly Pulitzer.  I paired them with a pair of my Monogrammed Clogs! 

We wrap all of that Preppy stuff together and here is what I drive.  Candy apple red Mustang Convertible.  This is for the wild side that just will not stay conservative!

So there you have it!! Preppy Greenville SC Girl with an "outside of the box" attitude toward life!

 I am off the get a pedicure and the fabulous nail salon next to my Hayood store called Kim's Nails. My mom treated for my Birthday!  Strawberry  Margarita Pink from OPI so they match me!
See ya !
