Size Guide
Giddy up!

This colorful creation is the work of the late Lincoln Zunie, a renowned Zuni jewelry artisan active in the ‘60s and ‘70s, best known for his horse and cow chip inlay designs. This buckle is a gorgeous iteration of an appaloosa, accented with colorful geometric inlay design that carries to the two keepers. It’s on a classic black leather strap with basket weave detail. Gorgeous.
