Traditional Silver Concho Belt

Paul J. Begay

About The Traditional Silver Concho Belt

This belt is made of 14 hand-forged and stamped pieces. Each piece has some repousse detail as well as embossed stamping--giving a lot of additional depth to an already labor intensive layout of scalloped edges and detailed stampwork.

The somewhat rectangular buckle measures 2 1/2" high X 3" long. The decoration resembles a bow or butterfly which is repeated in the 7 butterflies that alternate with 6 oval conchos in the belt. The center of each domed oval concho is a repousse daisy pattern. Each oval is 2 1/8" high X 2 5/8" long. Two copper bands secure each concho to the leather belt. The butterflies are 2 3/16" high X 1 3/16" across.
