John Winston Carved 330ct Turquoise Sterling. 925 Belt Buckle One Proud Warrior
An heirloom hand carved buckle by John Winston. This buckle is comprised of 330 cts of turquoise set in a solid sterling silver bezel.

Buckle fits up to 1.5 straps. Winston art pieces are museum grade and have been featured in Robb Report magazine as well as Patricia Cornwell's novel "Scarpetta". Very few of these pieces were produced annually and such examples are rare to come up for sale. John Winston, an artist who prefers to go by simply Winston, recently carved a 391-carat chunk of turquoise into the shape of an American bald eagle.

The piece is an impressive example of his work, which involves carving depictions of wildlife or Native Americans from pieces of rough turquoise, mother-of-pearl, and other gemstones and minerals. As with his other creations, Winston did not intend for his eagle to be displayed on a mantel in its owners home; he expects the owner to wear it on his belt.

Winston crafts unique belt buckles that are precious enough to become family heirlooms. There is absolutely no one in the world who makes buckles like him, says Todd Rauchwerger, owner of the J.

Cooper stores in New York City and Bal Harbour, Fla. Which have carried Winstons buckles for more than a decade. Winston recently established a more permanent address in Daytona Beach, Fla. But his flamboyant designs remain difficult to acquire because he produces fewer than 115 buckles a year. Much like custom cuff links or a limited-edition watch, a belt can reflect the wearers appreciation for quality and workmanship and demonstrate a sense of style.

Unfortunately some men pay a lot of attention to their clothing, but attach less importance to their accessories, says Beatrice Amblard, who worked at Hermès for more than a decade before establishing her own custom business, April in Paris, in San Francisco six years ago. If a man has a great suit and a beautiful pair of shoes, and he wears them with a poorly made belt, its a good indicator that at some point his sense of style just stops. Amblard produces understated 18-karat gold or sterling silver buckles that she pairs with simple, high-quality alligator or calfskin straps.

Amblard says that acquiring a custom buckle and belt can require research and legwork, unlike ordering a bespoke suit or bench-made shoes, which are more widely available. Retail outlets for such belts and buckles are limited, and most of the countrys finest buckle makersoften artisans who learned the skills from their fathers and grandfathersply their craft in remote locales, often in obscurity.

Her wide belt was crocodile with a Winston sabbertoothed tiger buckle handcrafted of precious metals and stones, and her pendant was a Winston as well, and considered fine art and as expensive as such. ROCK and GEM Magazine article: The art of sculpting gemstones has been a totally self-taught process constantly evolving in tactic, equipment and speed. Winstons jewelry works are one of a kind pieces found nowhere else in the world.

ROCK and GEM Magazine front cover Bob Jones: Artist John Winston has long been recognized as a premier carver of the blue gem turquoise. Anyone who knows Winston knows he has big ideas and big dreams so carving large masses of turquoise seems a natural to him and fits his style. JEWELER KEYSTONE MAGAZINE: JKM listed Winstons carved gemstone art as one of the top ten in the U. ROBB REPORT November 2006: His flamboyant designs remain difficult to acquire because he produces fewer than 115 buckles a year.

COWBOYS and INDIANS: When a buckle is a signature piece with a message just for you. Now {my customers} walk in and say, can I look at the back of the buckle. Like the carvings themselves, each message is different. Its always about life, about getting through the flames and the fire. COLUMBUS CIRCLE SPRING 2006: Drawing inspiration from the works of Erte, Harry Winston, Georgia OKeefe and his surroundings, Winstons one of a kind hand-carved pieces are captivating.
