The design of this buckle is based on the scallop patterns found in sea shells, thus the name conch or concho style. Ben Yazzie is a superb silversmith, one who is adept at numerous techniques. From hand-sculpted Horned Toads to heavy duty and detailed belt buckles, Ben is our “go-to guy.” The super high-grade natural turquoise in this buckle is from the Pilot Mountain, Nevada, turquoise mine. This cabochon was taken from the mine in the early 1970s and was cut in the nugget style.
