I had this idea for a cuff for our niece for Christmas and it was one of the last items I made, finishing it maybe a day or two before Christmas.  DH did not appreciate the setting of the rivets in the middle of the night  Grin



I had a different design in mind, with textured washers, but the device I was using to punch the holes for the rivets seized, so I had to come up with an alternative, and ended up punch out some smaller circles and etching them to fill out the pattern.

I made a hand cut brass heart and etched it, and made that the focal of the bracelet.  I riveted the different components onto a piece of leather I cut into a 1 and a half inch wide cuff, and added two sets of snaps on as a closure.  I waited so long to make it because I needed to know her wrist size, but she was out of town at the time, so I made it so that it could fit two size choices.  I really hope she liked it.

Here is a bit more posted about it on my blog, with some more pics.

Thank you all so much!  I hope to play around some more with metal and leather this year to see what else I can come up with.  I love cuffs myself, and maybe will make a couple for myself too Cheesy
