Leather Cuffs

NO, I'm not talking anything crazy here - just fun fashion!  I am loving the leather cuff bracelets that I've been making lately.  They are SO comfortable, SO cool looking, and they won't break your bank!!

The colors are gorgeous - either mouth-watering and bright, or calm and soothing.  I create a channel within the glass layers so I can thread the sterling silver wire through the glass cabochon to attach it to the cuff.  Sweet little pewter flowers or discs embellish the ends of the glass.

The cuffs come in black, dark brown or tan leather and in 1/2" ($49), 1" ($52) and 1-1/2" ($59) widths.

They have 2 snaps for a 7" or 8" fitting. At first I thought my wrist would be too small for even the 7" snap, but it's not! Because the leather is thick, it prevents the bracelet from rotating, so no threat of the glass ending up on the underside of your wrist and getting banged up.

I love the juxtaposition of the smooth, sleek glass against the rugged leather - a contrast that can't help but create a powerful presence.

Check out this stylish chica who bought one of the Vanilla Om 1-1/2" wide cuffs. I love that she is tall and slender, but not afraid to go BOLD! It looks fantastic on her!
