About the Buckle Designer

The designs for Quick Silver Buckles were created by award winning artist Vic Erickson. Many of you know him for his beautiful angling art. In 1981 Vic turned his attention and talent to artwork after years of formal training and practice in architecture and design. His focus on angling and wildlife art earned him immediate recognition.

A native of the Northwest, Vic Erickson is an avid angler whose time spent on the water has clearly given him inspiration and insight into the world of western gamefish, knowledge of their habits and details of their lives. The accuracy and detail of the fish and the action in Vic's work is beautifully merged with the subtle lines and colors of these exquisite creatures. This blend of mood and nature comes from a lifetime of angling for these beautiful fish.

Quick Silver Buckles is an extension of that talent and his demand for quality, excellence and simplicity in all he touches. He searched the the entire U.S. for the high quality foundry that carefully sand casts and finishes these buckles. It is his hope that they will give you as much pleasure in wearing them as their design and creation has given him.
