The very first buckle
An early Work, made when there was just a bag of tools that could be loaded on the back of the bike. A Baltic amber, set with pink corals and a Tibetan-turquoise. Made in Silver. It took considerable effort and improvisations to make this buckle. These were early days and I had made just one other piece before this one. I knew next to nothing about silver-work… spending days on the mountainside balcony, trying to solder together the large pieces with a 5 Rupees blowpipe and a candle.
Made while in the Kulu valley, Himalaya 1994.
