My inspiration came from my love of summer and the beach. I wanted to capture a wonderfully warm summer day, where the sand is hot, but the water is cool. I wanted someone to look at this cuff and be transported back to their childhood; building sand castles on the beach and chasing the waves.
I also looked to old vintage postcards for inspiration. I love how they depict everyone having such a fun time at the beach. These old postcards are bright and fun and real works of art.
My cuff was all hand embroidered using product from ArtBeads. It was then sewn onto super soft dark brown leather and finished with snaps.
