A gorgeous vintage illustration of a sparrow, with an ivory background. Sparrows (or swallows) symbolize A seaman with 5,000 miles or more under his belt earned the right to a tattoo... but that doesn't float your boat, a belt buckle is a great way to show your love for the bird and/or its symbolism!
About Pip Robins' buckles:
After creating the image digitally I put the image on leather, and then coat the leather so it is durable. The leather can withstand normal wear and tear, but understand that leather is soft and is not dent-proof. How do I get the image on leather? Why, magic of course! As long as you do not take sharp pointy object to the surface, or swim with your belt buckle on, you should be fine! (As an aside: I would recommend keeping sharp pointy objects away from that area of your body as a general rule.)
Each buckle measures 3" x 1-3/4". They fit on a 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) snap belt (which is not included). With very few exceptions, all belt buckles work exactly the same way- so once you have one snap belt, you can interchange belt buckles from any company!
