The WristBandit's Wearable Art Leather Cuffs

By on Tuesday, August 02, 2011 5 Comments

We often talk about jewelry being wearable art. Sharon aka as The WristBandit walks the talk. I'm glad she commented on my Facebook page because her hand-painted leather cuff bracelets are definitely works of art.

Every piece is one of a kind - the sort which will appeal to those who have a distinctive individual style.

As you can see from my picks, Ohio-based Sharon often draws her inspirations from native artists from around the world.

The gecko cuff above has the look of Australian aboriginal dot paintings. Others like the mask cuff below is Native American. The owl cuff is in the Inuit style.







The design below is her Golden Lily cuff which required burning the leather for the darker color and for the 3-D effect :


Don't you think her cuff bracelets are like wearing art canvases on wrists?

  4. OMGOSH...thank you so much for sharing this with us. Awesome artist. And again...as always...you have given me added inspiration. I make wrist cuffs for a local program here that provides Christmas gifts for children up to age 18. I wanted to do something special for the older kiddos so that's where the wrist cuffs came in. I have never thought of painting on them. Thank you!!!

    Hugs!!
