Here you’ll find original artefacts given a new lease of life – buckles will be given new straps, lost crosses will be re-united with rosaries, pendants will be re-hung and more… watch this space and Facebook/Twitter for updates!

How to order

All the buckles below are (as far as I am aware) bronze. All are remounted on vegetable tanned leather straps.
Sizes and prices are given in the captions, dating will be added shortly (where known).
Dating is taken from similar examples in the Portable Antiquities Scheme database.
All the straps below are untreated so they can be stamped or dyed to suit.
