Fusion - Rio de Janeiro Belt Buckle Set shown on Straight Strap
Close-Up | Angled Close-Up
The beautiful, hand-crafted Fusion - Rio de Janeiro 3-piece belt buckle set is part of Neil's Fusion Series for the obvious fusing of metals, but also for the more subtle fusion of East and West, classic and traditional, complex and elegant. Neil hand-crafted each of these buckles (and sets) from metal plate, bar, and wire - and each is uniquely sculpted. The Fusion - Rio de Janeiro belt buckle set is true wearable art, and makes a great gift for graduation, retirement, and more.
Neil enjoys experimenting with different kinds of Mokume-gane. The Fusion - Rio de Janeiro is a classy, hand-crafted 3-piece set made from sterling silver and Mokume-gane. The playful addition of a different kind of Mokume-gane on the corners of the buckle add another dimension to the whole set. Mokume-gane (Japanese for "wood grained metals") is a type of Japanese married metal made from diffusion bonded laminates often used in decorating swords, in this case consisting of nickel silver, brass, copper, shiubichi, and shakudo. Shibuichi and shakudo are Japanese alloys made for their interesting patinas.
This simple, yet artistic and fun 3-piece set is a statement of individuality on any straight belt strap. It is substantial without being too heavy.
