Beckandshel studio, nicknames that the sisters use for each other, began after they created buckles for themselves and some friends. Then, those friends wanted more for gifts, so the business was created in their Woodstock studio. Visit their Facebook page for more information.
The buckles can be found at Divas&Dames in Acworth, through holiday market and trunk shows. The sister’s love to meet their clients and help them with the decision process. They also sell them online. Buckles start at $35. They do custom designs and prices vary for those unique buckles. They can create any school logo or design. Their work includes photos or artwork that clients give them, and their original design work.
Michelle said, “It seems that the first buckle that women purchase is tends to be a more “subdued” in colors and design. But when she comes back for her second or third, (after receiving so many compliments!) she is looking for a “look at me” design.” The best thing about the buckles is they are interchangeable. Once you own a belt strap (which you can purchase from their website), you can change the buckle according to the outfit.
Some topsellers are: The “Addison,” which has wonderful fall colors and the racy “Va Va Voom,” featuring the classic pin up girl. Since this is the South, the Monogram Buckles are a must have for many women. The choices are endless and match their tag line “accessories as intriguing as you.”
They hear from women at the trunk shows that belts are for “skinny girls”; well this is just not true! The sister’s know that a belt can be worn for any size woman. It can help define a waist and give shape to an outfit. If you mention Scoop OTP, you get 25% off any in stock buckle. This offer does not apply to custom designs. That’s the scoop!
