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. These stunning handmade cuff bracelets are wonderful for men and women! One features a vintage centerpiece made from solid copper and faux turquoise by Bell Trading Post, the other features a vintage centerpiece from nickel silver and faux turquoise by Bell Trading Post. The centerpieces are surrounded with a filigree metal base, with rivets and snaps.

The cuff closes with three snaps and is adjustable. I made two sizes: one will fit wrists 6-9 inches, the other will fit wrists 8-10 inches in the copper. The nickel will fits wrists 6-9 inches. This cuff is made from full grain cowhide in cognac brown the other in black, which compliments the center perfectly! 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 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!

Some history: Bell Trading Post was founded in Albuquerque, New Mexico in 1932, they sold southwest style jewelry at various tourist locations in the United States.
