I must have some good blogging karma because yet another amazing Etsy artist has donated a beautiful piece to The Storage Geek giveaway cause!
Chris of the very cool Etsy shop Metalogical has been kind enough to offer up this badass bottle opening belt buckle. “This unique buckle makes a perfect gift for that hard to shop for person and comes in handy at those parties or camping trips where no one can find a bottle opener!
Each buckle begins life as a piece of 3/16” steel. The 3” blank is heated in a forge to 2300 degrees and the circular opener is hot cut with a handmade chisel and carefully shaped with a hammer. It is then bent in a press, welded, cleaned and detailed to perfection, and sprayed with our low VOC environmentally friendly clear coat and our Rust finish.”
About Metalogical: An old school (think 19th century) process metal shop located in Florida, Metalogical makes some pretty wonderful things aside from belt buckles. My favourite (Probably because it makes both my inner storage geek and stationary geek happy is the Business card holder.) But they also make wearable accessories and decor items for your home. Chris is also a skateboard enthusiast who last year purchased Hello Kitty board or his little girl.
(The business card holder is not up for giveaway, I just love it dearly.)
Intrigued? Love the buckle? Awesome! Read on for your chance to win it!
