Ivy Leaf custom buckle

This is the Ivy Leaf buckle.
I was asked to make this as part of a trade for a belt.
Before I started I honestly can say I wasn't sure what an ivy leaf looked like.
After I get my belt in trade I will update this post with a picture.

I thought about this for a while. I almost bought a stamped leaf and attached it. I am glad I didn't. This is weld build-up. Then ground flat. After the leaf was the correct shape, I added the leaf veins with hammer and chisel. The buckle was then cleaned up and left natural steel color.
finished with two layers of clear laquer.
