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 2-inch-wide genuine leather cuff bracelet in brown. 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 double snaps, is adjustable and will fit wrists 6-8 inches.

Attached as the centerpiece is a beautiful vintage stamped Laila Rowe ornate cut-out filigree copper tone diamond shaped brooch, with gorgeous terracotta tones and pink rhinestones. This stunning handmade cuff bracelet makes a delightful gift! The centerpiece is surrounded with a filigree metal base, with rivets and snaps.

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, at least not by me. If only the brooch could talk!

The history of the Laila Rowe jewelry brand began in 1992. Its founders, Judith Schwartz, a native of the Bronx, and her partner Alexia Crawford, who came to New York from Sydney, Australia, began creating costume jewelry for the company in the early 1990s. In fact, Judith Schwartz had been involved in jewelry design long before founding Laila Rowe. She even had three of her own stores in Manhattan called Nemesis Jewelry. Alexia Crawford ran a wholesale company supplying women’s accessories to department stores, and also had a small retail store in New Haven. The collaboration between the two friends was successful and the business grew rapidly. They traveled to Europe and Asia and spent a lot of time researching market trends. As a result, on June 28, 2003, the first Laila Rowe store appeared in Columbus, and within a year they opened eight more! (Based on the article in The New York Times, Sept. 19, 2004) Traditionally, all pieces are marked on the back side with five-pointed star, or “Laila Rowe”.
