CHECK IT OUT :: Leather cuffs

When I was in grade school, Wonder Woman starring Linda Carter was a huge hit. My family watched it together every week. I enjoyed the show and loved seeing a bad ass woman kicking some butt every week... I especially coveted the cuffs she wore. My best girl friend and I would parade around wearing our homemade paper ones and spend the afternoon "deflecting bullets."

From that point on, the the pursuit for the perfect cuff was in full swing.

Fast forward to today and my search has brought me these lovelies and I can hardly wait to get my hands on them. From great dyes, to wonderful tool work, to the added bling of precious metals, I heart them all.

  2. You are most welcome! I love them so much! I'd love to pick 'em up one by one as I can afford them. I tried taking a tooling class but my schedule at the newspaper became so erratic that I missed a few classes in a row and had to drop out. :(
