About Buckle & Bling

Buckle & Bling is the creation of Connecticut native and artist, Susan Bass Fine. Located in the town of Waterford, Connecticut, Buckle & Bling takes wearable art to a new level. Founded in 2005, the line of belt buckles, barrettes and pin-dants (heirloom pins worn as a necklace) has been described as exquisite and breathtaking. Each jeweled belt buckle, barrette and pin-dant is carefully designed and intricately crafted using pearls, Swarovski crystals, semi-precious stones, sterling and antique medallions from around the world or an heirloom provided by the customer. All buckles are priced with an interchangeable leather belt in either black or brown.

In 1995, Susan launched a jewelry business specializing in unique one-of-a-kind pieces and was primarily involved in fundraising events for charitable organizations. After retiring from teaching in 2005, Susan began customizing and creating jeweled belt buckles, barrettes and pin-dants. Buckle & Bling has been seen at various juried art shows throughout New England. Each piece is an original piece of art truly one of a kind.
