Turquoise Butterfly Leather Cuff
Oh how I love this bracelet! This is the first in my line of Upcycled Leather Cuffs, a unique collection of one-of-a-kind leather cuffs made from upcycled leather belts and unique embellishments collected during my travels around the world. If these cuffs could talk, they would have so many stories and adventures to tell! Each bracelet is a unique piece that cannot be replicated.
I hand-paint and distress the leather to give it character, then seal it to protect the finish. The cracked paint look is intentional and gives the bracelet its character. The embellishments are securely glued and sewn onto the leather.
This unique bracelet features an oversize antiqued brass butterfly, treated with a green/blue verdigris finish, which is a perfect match for the distressed turquoise leather. This bracelet was made from a wonderfully soft Buckle brand leather belt with stitched flower detail around the edges. The butterfly and its square filigree backing are securely sewn onto the leather. Antiqued brass snap closure.
This leather cuff measures 9" (23 cm) long. It will fit a 6.5" to 7" wrist comfortably (16.5-18 cm). The cuff is 1.5" wide (4 cm).
As with all of my jewelry, I only use top-quality materials in my work. The result is well worth it and it shows!
