About the Silver Spur


The Silver Spur specializes in custom jewelry design offering original pieces in a variety of metals and stones. The artist, Sarah Buckles, creates her well known two-toned effect by combining both sterling silver and white gold with 14 or 18 karat yellow gold.

Today, Sarah has been accompanied by her daughter, Brett, who is beginning to work with her. Brett grew up in Steamboat with her twin brother, Brandon. Brett was a member of the US Ski Team and graduated from the University of Colorado with a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism-News/Editing. When she’s not making jewelry or freelance writing, Brett enjoys riding her horse, mountain biking and skiing.
