The construction of this buckle is seldom produced by artist. Five layers of metal are cut out to build this American Eagle Buckle. Two different curved surfaces are perfectly mated and then are silver soldered together,. The construction process to create a shadow box is amazing and exacting control of heat are critical in this project. This Five Layer overlay American Eagle is nickle silver with Sterling findings on back. I may build one in Sterling or Sterling and Gold, When I am asked.
