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-inch-wide genuine leather cuff bracelet in navy. 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 and is adjustable and will fit wrists 6-9 inches.

Attached as the centerpiece are two versions of GG Harris fine pewter Whales from 1988: a Sperm Whale and a Grey Whale. They are cute, fun, lightweight and somewhat rustic. What a great tribute to these magnificent creatures. The pewter is lead free. Setting it off is a silver toned filigree base that perfectly highlights the whales. These are the ONLY ONES.....one of a kind. 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 and will never be duplicated. If only the brooch could talk! The history of the Harris family business began in 1983, when a young 27-year-old truck driver George G. Harris created his first pewter trout pin. According to the designer, from that moment on, he could no longer stop. With his education in biology and his natural talent as an artist, his lifelike and anatomically correct lapel pins became popular in his native New Jersey and throughout the United States. George Harris became involved in the design, marketing and sales of his products. Handcrafted with exquisite craftsmanship, his vintage pieces from the Wildlife collection have become highly collectible.
