Marty's Amazing Belt Buckle Collection

My life is currently a full, beautiful blast of energy and motion. Still, I must pause to showcase one of the seemingly random collections in my home. May I present... Some of my husband's belt buckles:



This is a unique handmade belt he commissioned last year. It's a replica of the belt worn by the character Bo Duke on the television series The Dukes of Hazzard. Marty actually met John Schneider once and asked him about "the" belt. The buckle currently on the belt is from an antiques store. "The" buckle will be made soon, I'm sure.

Now for some of the buckles:

  5. My husband spoke to John Schneider (Bo Duke) a few years ago about the orignial belt and apparently the leather-worker was in Atlanta and is no longer in business. So we commissioned Terry Lankford to make a replica of the original "Bo Duke belt". Terry made the guitar cover on the guitar Waylon Jennings played in the opening of the show The Dukes of Hazzard.
    Terry's website: www.lankfordmade.com
    A link to a video of the Dukes opening credits showing the Waylon guitar cover Terry made: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zRX4mlFi06A
    I hope that helps!
