San Angelo, TX--Something about hand-crafted jewelry never puts it out of trend, and it's even more meaningful when it's relevant to the times. Waste Texas jewelry maker Chase Holland knew this.

Towards the end of the Great Depression, Holland designed a small tie clip resembling a miniature Western spur. He gifted the clips as a warm gesture to those who had helped him out during the rough years. One of the designs even reached the desk of President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Now, decades later, the head jeweler at Holland's company, Brant Horner — who shares ownership with the founder's grandson — speaks to Texas Country Reported about how the spurs are personalized to have that lasting touch that gleams through generations.
