Matt is what you would call a definite "character." After spending 10 years in Texas prisons, he was undaunted in changing and turning his life around. Matt was familiar with jewelry materials, so during his incarceration he learned the art of buckle making. Ironically, he made his first buckle set for a member of the Texas Rangers(not the baseball team!), which bore the star symbolic of the law enforcement agency. It was featured on the cover of Texas Monthly, and the rest is, as they say, history. We are proud to work with Matt and hope you enjoy his work as much as we do.
