My Etsy Buy

Leather Gator Embossed Cuff Bracelet by Richard Moorer

I was shopping around for a good quality, not-terribly-expensive leather cuff. I wanted something that had a little bit of an edge to it without being too Sons of Anarchy (though I would do most anything for Jax Teller, don't get me started on that guy!). While the Etsy shop has an eclectic grouping of items, I loved the leather work & especially this Gator Cuff.

With the few clicks of the keyboard & a few days of shipping, I had my bracelet. And it was too big. My fault, not the artists. With just a simple request, he was kind enough to fix the bracelet for me so it now fits snugly.

Let me just say the bracelet is absolutely beautiful! Richard was awesome to work with & I have made the bracelet a wardrobe staple. I'm also loving the alligator key fob (not pictured) which is nicer than some of the very expensive designer brand fobs I've owned in years passed.

The top of the Cuff

The inside with artists signature & original piece number.
I love this added bit of detail!

Fits nice & snug!
