I have always loved vintage jewelry, but these days people aren’t wearing pins and brooches like they used to. When my mother died at 89, I found myself with a whole box full of brooches, pins and earrings that I just didn’t know what to do with. So, I decided to start repurposing them by making leather cuff bracelets. I also find a lot of items at estate sales, thrift shops etc. It excites me to breathe new life into these old classics by adding a modern flair. Plus, they are FUN!

I carefully choose every material used on my cuffs to compliment the centerpiece. Here we have a lovely 1.5-inch-wide genuine leather cuff bracelet in black. It is great quality leather that isn't too bulky and is quite pliable upon purchase. It will soften further the more you wear it. It is lightweight and unique! The leather strap is new and not repurposed. The cuff closes with three snaps, is adjustable and will fit wrists 6.5-8.5 inches.

Attached as the centerpiece is an eye-catching vintage metal crab in pewter. The crab is a Metzke piece and stamped. What a great conversation piece! It is perfect for beach lovers, crab lovers or people who are of the zodiac sign cancer. Beneath it is a metal tray that has been hand painted in black to make our crab friend pop, then a filigree metal piece in silver tone. The rivets and snaps are done in an antique pewter and silver tone. This stunning handmade cuff bracelet makes a delightful gift!

The measurements listed here are the dimensions of the actual cuff. To make sure it fits you, I suggest that measure your wrist with a soft measuring tape. You can also use a string and wrap it around your wrist, then lay it down on a regular ruler to see the actual measurement. After measuring yourself, make sure the size of your wrist fits within these dimensions comfortably. This cuff is stamped with a flying peach above the middle snap [see photo example]. That's how you know I made it!

These cuffs are not waterproof. Please do not wear them swimming, in the shower or doing sports. You will ruin the bracelet if this happens. I also highly recommend that you don’t wear the bracelet while sleeping. You will need to take care while wearing this, but it is sturdy and will soften with wear. Your cuff will come to you in a pretty gift box…ready for gift giving or to pamper yourself! Makes a great gift! This unique bracelet is one of a kind. If only the brooch could talk!

Some history on Metzke jewelry: Designs by Metzke was founded in 1963 by Dr. Fred W. Metzke and his wife Mary. Under Dr. Metzke's skills as a model maker/artist and the creativity of his wife Mary, the small family company grew to one of the largest pewter giftware manufacturers in the world. In 1972, Fred and Mary were joined by their son Stephen. As company President, Stephen helped to develop Designs by Metzke into a company of almost 200 hundred employees and 100 sales personnel in 17 showrooms around the world. Finally, in 1990, Barbara Metzke joined the rest of the family as Vice President. The Metzke family business featured over 3000 designs in several hundred categories. Each product was hand finished and shipped from the Metzke factory in Tallahassee, Florida. Designs by Metzke represented clients such as Disney World, Disney Land, the Smithsonian, Neiman Marcus, Dillard's, major gift catalogs, and thousands of small gift shops and boutiques. Designs by Metzke, Inc. officially closed its doors in 1997 after realizing it could not continue to compete with the foreign market of imported pewter giftware.
