Andrew Lincoln Commissions & More
Starting back in 2014 Paxton was contacted by the British actor Andrew Lincoln, who plays the main character Rick Grimes on the hit TV series The Walking Dead, to create an original belt buckle design for his personal Season 5 cast and crew gift. An original hand carved buckle master was created in solid sterling silver and then a limited run of 290 replicas were made in white bronze to be given to the cast and crew on The Walking Dead set. Andrew again contacted Paxton the following year in 2015 to have his cast and crew gift for season 6 created. This time it was a limited run of 300 sterling silver military style pins, hand carved and created in a Walking Dead theme of a Fallen Soldier. Paxton was honored to work with Andrew Lincoln and also had a lot of fun on the project, having been a big fan of the show and actor for quite a while. Later, in 2016, Paxton was commissioned by some friends of a few of the cast members of The Walking Dead to create original handmade pieces as birthday presents for both Andrew Lincoln and also the actor Michael Cudlitz, who played the character Abraham Ford on The Walking Dead series.
