Handmade Western Belt BucklesAlison Young's website
I created Cinch Buckles as a way to bring attention to an often overlooked accessory, the belt buckle. Born and raised in Texas, I had seen my fair share of buckles but, unable to find the styles I was craving began designing and creating my own. After earning a Masters in Sculpture from Arizona State University, I headed back to Austin, Texas where friends and strangers asked about buying my unique handiwork and Cinch Buckles was born. Each buckle is handmade with a limited edition image and therefore has its own unique story. I continue to create my own sculptures and show regularly throughout the United States. Alyart.com has become the headquarters for both Cinch Buckles and my sculptural creations.
