Fusion - Helsinki Belt Buckle shown on Straight Strap
Close-Up | Angled Close-Up
The beautiful, hand-crafted Fusion - Helsinki belt buckle 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 - Helsinki belt buckle 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 - Helsinki is a striking belt buckle made from sterling silver and Mokume-gane (Japanese for "wood grained metals"). Mokume-gane 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, and copper.
This simple and dressy belt buckle is a classy statement on any straight belt strap. It is substantial without being too heavy. The surface of the mokume-gane center of the buckle was slightly acid-etched creating a beautiful, wood-grain-like texture and bringing out the subtle colors in the combined metals. With the copper and brass color in the Mokume-gane this buckle looks amazing on blue-jeans!
