Johnson & Held
Every Johnson & Held buckle is handcrafted in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Englewood, Colorado. Boot Star works closely with J&H to create unique and artistic belt buckles for our customers. Our collection of buckles begins with a nickel silver base and added materials sourced from all over the U.S., such as turquoise, ironwood, and abalone. Born of the spirit of the Wild West, for over 30 years, Johnson & Held has been a leading manufacturer of premier 100% handcrafted, custom designed belt buckles and continues to strive to create enduring pieces of art that can be passed down from generation to generation.
"This is an incredibly intricate inlaid thunderbird. Featuring turquoise, coral, and mother of pearl, this buckle takes several days to craft. We hand cut each inlaid piece and place it with tweezers into the buckle, making sure that each piece fits into the design. That is only after we hand cut all of the metal work, solder it together, and grind the buckle.
The thunderbird is one of the few mythical animals that remains largely the same across many Native American tribes. Despite the thunderbird being passed down through oral story telling, it is almost universally intelligent, powerful and wrathful. This was a bird you did not mess with. It created thunder storms when it flew and could throw lightning by blinking. I don?'t know what this says about those of you who wear this buckle, but I would like to think the buckle gives you a hint of the thunderbird's power.
This is not a subtle buckle. Measuring in at 4.5" by 3.5", it is a little larger than our standard rectangle buckles. Our recommendation: don't hide this one under a sweater. It is meant to be seen. Kadee wants you to know that given the color diversity, it is easy to accessorize with this buckle. Try a turquoise or white scarf for starters." (Johnson & Held)
