Hi Terry,

We don’t make any of the items here. We sell items made by Native American artists and they don’t take special orders. Here are a couple of other posts that talk about why special orders aren’t an option with us.

The style of buckle you have there is one of the styles that is made for use to finish off a concho belt.. a buckle with a tongue.

The other, more common type, is a plate style belt buckle with a post on the back. Here is an example of that type on a concho belt.

As far as where to send you to get that buckle made, I just don’t have a single suggestion. But I am posting this on my blog so if someone does happen to see it and sends me a referral, I’ll be sure to pass it along to you.

    We love your blog! We refer to your site often for info on artists and stones.

We do repairs for people all over the country, as well as for most of the jewelry stores in Scottsdale, AZ and for the prestigious Heard Museum in Phoenix.

    • Thanks so much Diane. The blog is about a subject I am passionate about !

      I’ve passed your note and all your contact info along to 3 readers who were requesting repairs or custom orders and I have kept your email on file here where I can find it easily in the future.

      We also occasionally have such needs, so perhaps I will be contacting your for our store Horsekeeping.

      Paula
