Miniature Buckles & Ribbons

BUCKLES

When I started my doll line I could not find small enough miniature buckles anywhere. I wanted something tiny and beautiful, so I had my own cast and laser carved out of metal so thin it’s like a business card. Since a metal factory’s minimum order was 1000 sheets (EACH SHEET HAS 30 BUCKLES) I have quite a collection of these, and so I thought I’d share this resource with my fellow doll artists and all the hobbyist out there so they can share my joy of creation!

Each buckle is laser carved with intricate decorative pattern and easy to clip off the sheet with wire cutters or nail clippers. They are quite strong and fully functional for straps that need opening and closing, or adjusting a garment’s fit between different body types.

PRICES (including a significant wholesale discount)

  • 1 sheet (30 buckles, 15 pairs) 9usd
  • 10 sheets 80usd
  • 50 sheets 220usd
  • 100 360usd

COLOURS

  • Shiny gold
  • Shiny silver
  • Tarnished silver¬† (I did a weathering test with a limited amount of buckles and some display spots of oxidation. They did not darken like I hoped though.)

SIZE

The size of these buckles works well with 2-3mm silk ribbons (see below), or 2-1.5mm straps cut out of thicker or harder materials like leatherette.¬†For size and colour reference, here are the buckles in use on 16″ Inamorata doll shoes, purse and armour:

 

RIBBONS

I also have also accumulated some spools of 3mm double sided satin ribbons over past projects and offering them for sale. This ribbon size works well with the buckles and is thin enough to loop through twice to create functional sliding buckle closure. The polyester ribbon is easy to seal with a lighter so that the tips won’t unravel.

COLOURS

  • Warm beige
  • Tea rose pink
  • Burgundy
  • Hard white
  • Light grey
  • Black
  • Dandelion yellow

WIGS FOR DOLLSHE DAVID (44cm)

I’ve developed a technique for making hard cap beard wigs for dolls, but they need to be tailor made to follow the contours of the face. Right now I only offer them for DollShe David, who I have at hand, but if you send me the doll head I can make them for any doll you like. There is a risk of damaging the exciting faceup however, so it’s best done with a blank head or combined with a repaint commission. You can also add glitter by request!
