I am the maker and creator of "The Curious Cuff". I take used and vintage belts and repurpose them into the coolest cuffs!
Some leather I emboss and/or paint with special leather paint that is flexible and won't crack..some leather is awesome just the way it is..a deconstructed patina that only time and wear can create.
When I first started stamping on metal..things tended to fly across the room and a few bad words were said..but I kept at it and continued watching Beaducation videos for tips and tricks which helped me a lot too!
I view my cuffs like a tattoo on leather..each one is personal and tells a story...or is just really cool looking!
My favorite thing to make is a custom creation. I love working with the person figuring out just the right leather, metal and words. Its very fulfilling when it arrives in the mail and they message me with how much they love it!
When I'm making cuffs I'm making HAPPY happen!
