Clan MacKinnon Silver Belt Buckle

Clan MacKinnon Hand Carved and Assembled Silver Belt Buckle

I was approached by Gerald MacKinnon, who resides in Prince George, with a request to build a replacement buckle of a very old one that had gone missing. This buckle was part of the clan chiefs' regalia. I learned that Gerald's official title was The MacKinnon of MacKinnon and that he represented the hereditary chief of the clan MacKinnon. It took almost two years to create the buckle and the clan was very happy with it. I was pleased and surprised when I was presented with the honor of being made a gentleman of the clan. -Darrell Hubbell
