Leather Cuff Bracelets
This new collection is inspired, in part, by the combination of two fundamental elements : the Earth and the Sea.
Earth is represented by the rich, warm textures of Latigo leather, and metals. Latigo leather is a cattle hide leather which is used for saddlery work and numerous other outdoor uses. It is thick and resistant to the elements, yet it quickly becomes soft to the touch, supple, durable and gorgeous.
The sea is represented by the use of nautical hardware, such as the ever present anchor shackle, which has become Miss Nyet’s jewelry’s signature hardware, conchos in the shape of boat propellers, or again replicas of old pirate coins, such as the gold or silver doubloon, or the legendary piece of eight.
The Leather Cuffs come in organic colors, black and brown, or a combination of the two, and range from 1 1/2 to almost 2 inches in width.
You may find our cuffs feel a bit stiff when new. Fear not, this is normal with Latigo leather. You will find out within a couple of days that the leather uses your body heat to conform to your wrist, only to become as comfortable as your favorite pair of jeans.
Add to this some (optional) suede lace weaving to add a burst of color, metal beads, conchos and/or rivets, and you get, again, a unique piece of jewelry that truly reflects who you are.
As always with Miss Nyet Jewelry, every piece is handmade, with love and patience, by Delphine Pontvieux, with carefully selected hides and hardware that are made to last.
