What is "Up-Cycled"?

Up- Cycled Jewelry and Handmade Jewelry

Up-cycled cuffs are leather bracelets made using worn leather belts.  Part of the fun of this adventure is the hunt for the perfect leather! I turn these belts into cuff bracelets you wear on your wrist.  How fun is that?

You will find that nearly all of the materials used to create the jewelry in my store have been previously loved.  This means that each piece created is UNIQUE! The scratches and marks in the leather indicate how much the belt has been worn and the leather gets new life being worn on your wrist.  

Each cuff and piece of jewelry is handcrafted by me.  I stamp each metal plate, letter by letter so there will be variations in placement--this is what handmade is all about! 

The stories matter.  There are stories of those who have previously loved and worn these pieces, some I know but most I won't ever know, and now they're becoming part of your story.  

This is the good stuff.  Taking old pieces and creating new memories with them.
