A. F. and J. A. - Two methods lor fastening the buckle designed by Miss Sparks, given in the magazine last month, are illustrated herewith. The upper one shown is very simple. Two catches are left on one piece and bent over, and then slots for them to fit in are cut out in the opposite piece. The second method is stronger, for in this case the catch is held by a piece of wire. The wire should be fairly Stout and the metal worked round it. with a space left for the catch to fit in. In order that the buckle may fit quite close, as shown in the original chawing, a catch should be brazed on behind, a job better left to the silversmith.
