The Sutro Breaking Down is meant to convey the feeling of losing control. We started with a thick sterling silver base, then joined 18 multi-colored gold and silver wires, different widths and lengths, and pulled them through the back of the buckle. When the wires were secure, we began to experiment with the idea of what it would look like if the design were spinning too fast, what would happen? This was a fun buckle to make, and we're very pleased with the execution. We've curated a large collection of stones at the shop, just waiting for the opportunity. The irradiated blue diamond in the center of the buckle is a perfect touch.
