May River Oyster Shell Buckle NEW SILICON BRASS AGED STERLING FINISH Lost Wax cast from wax carving by Curtis Hart. Features: Solid one piece casting, "no hollow back" buckle. Silicon brass contains up to 90 % copper giving it a "red" appearance and resulting in a very strong solid brass used often for hardware shut off connectors etc. After casting all buckles are hand finished and polished in our Hilton Head Island shop. Aged buckles are then suspended over industrial ammonia for approx 6 to 12 hours. turning the brass a true oxidized weathered patina. This hands on and time consuming process results in varied shades of patina/ no two are identical. We do not consider this a flaw or defect.
