Melis Accessories Skins: Leather Embellished Cuffs

October 26, 2010

The cuff bracelet made a huge comeback this year, but I was still looking for something that had a sense of power that wasn’t necessarily a metal-based piece. I had Wonder Woman fantasies that involved more texture, more personality and more edge than swank.

As you can imagine, I just about fell out of my chair over melis accessories new line of SKINS. All the cuffs are handmade from leather and / or suede and are embellished with natural stones, nailheads and Swarovski crystal. Each cuff is embellished in all four corners with a Swarovski crystal – a signature with the line — and the backs are corset laced so they are adjustable to fit all size wrists.

I love when designers pay attention to the tiny details underneath a cuff. The wearer sees the underside more than the top – it’s nice to get a little glimpse full of sparkle and sex.

All styles are made from scrap leather so most are one- or few-of-a-kind. Stones used depend on what is in stock so there are limited quantities of stone styles monthly, which means 90,000 people aren’t going to have your cuff. You’re original, your collection should be as well.

Like what you see? Of course you do. Go visit melis accessories’ etsy shop. She is delightful and a joy to work with. Sorry, you can’t have the one in picture #2 up there. That one is MINE.
