Thank you - A lovely woman was culling her collection of jewelry she no longer wears. She had a Calvin Martinez belt that was outstanding. But when I tried it on the conchos were a bit small on my frame, so my best friend bought it immediately. This was the other belt that she had, and next to the Martinez belt it just didn’t wow me. I looked at it again, with a little of the tarnish rubbed off, and decided it was perfect. I am having the strap changed to black leather and I cannot wait to wear this belt. It is also a bonus to know that the piece was made by such a well known artist. I really love this forum.
