Belt Buckles by Kiel Mead

+ Read Article

Senior Editor Aaron Britt talked to Kiel Mead the other day, after an initial cruise through his site yielded the Birdie Light, which he promptly posted. A closer look yielded a handful of men's accoutrements that he rather liked, including a passel of belt buckles and a tie clip. They chatted them over and Kiel sent some pictures of his work.
