Skull Belt Buckle

Mary Spencer in Tucson, AZ, co-owner of WATTO Distinctive Metal Wear submitted this photo. She explains, "We (my husband and I) make handmade metal accessories. We have a large selection of skull buckles. More of their work can be found in their Etsy Shop and on Facebook

I love hand made belt buckles. I like the contrast between the darker metal and the metal skulls. This style belt buckle always makes me think of westerns. It might be due to seeing a lot of them with tooled leather belts. I could see a bounty man wearing this to account for how many criminals he had captured...though only three skulls wouldn't make him the best man for the job.
