Sometimes a passion creeps in early on, and once it’s in…it’s there for life. When he was just a teenager, Grainger McKoy carved birds and decoys growing up in South Carolina. He may not have been the only kid doing that, but Grainger took it one step (maybe even seven or eight steps) further. A wooden feather he carved was turned into a mold. He poured bronze and sterling into the mold to make an exquisite feather. Then he made another. And another. Pretty soon he had an entire bird made of bronze.
Discovering these talents would eventually lead Grainger McKoy to Coleman E. Adler & Sons in New Orleans. There he would meet Ms. Tiffany Adler and on her recommendation, he developed the Quail Cufflinks and Stud Set. Today, these cufflinks are among the most popular items…but by no means are they the only handsome accessories available for men.
Quail Belt Buckle
Entirely handmade, this belt buckle uses a cam-locking mechanism so the belt doesn’t need holes. A closer look on the buckle and you’ll notice tool marks from the silversmiths, a hallmark of a piece made by hand. Available in both brass and sterling silver, the buckles have a sterling quail on the front. The belt is an inch wide and made of Italian Calfskin with an alligator pattern.
