Gift Guide – Leather Cuffs

20161102_113613

I just got through making a new batch of leather cuffs this week.  These are fun to make because each one is a unique work of art. I use a lot of re-purposed materials in these which makes each one a challenge to put together!

First I cut the straps out of salvage leather or old belts.  Once in awhile I use a purchased cuff blank as well.  They get snaps put on and the plainest ones get a paint job with my Angelus Leather Paints.

Then I embellish with treasures from my stash.

Eventually I end up with a pile of lovely cuffs that head off to various stores and shows.

At only $15, these make a great affordable and unique gift for both guys and gals. My cuffs can currently be found at Tessera Fine Art Gallery, City Arts Boutique, and Arlington Market.
