hey everybody (sorry about blowing my own trumpet with the title, but i'm very proud  Wink)
this is my first ever cuff. i made it from some leather which used to be a handbag, and  the metal is part of a soft-drink can. um... what else can i say? here 'tis:

and this is me wearing it:

and this is a part which i hurt myself making... the back
okay okay, you're probably thinking 'so what?' but i was very proud of myself for doing a neat job with the press-studs, (not for hurtng myself) and i uh, was using a very sharp needle, and i uh, accidentally got the back end, the eye part, well i got that in my thumb... and i mean in! it hit the bone...... Tongue oops
now, sorry for grossing you all out, but can you please post some feedback? btw, the metal doesntlook as bad in real life as it does in the photos. Thanks,  Grin
please.... post feedback. good or bad, i still love you Undecided

 woot... one relply Cry
but thanks  Grin i saw that swilry thing on a building in the CBD of my city, and i thought it was interesting. i took a photo of it, messed around with photo shop on it, printed it out, modified it a bit from the original, traced it onto tracing paper, put the tracing paper on top of the cuff, hand sewed the outline of it, marked the outline in more detail with a sharpie, then cut it out.  Smiley i have too much time.

I love it!!! I'm surprised your cuff hasn't gotten any more recognition than it has. I love the design of it and it obviously took a lot of work and more than a little pain to make it *eek*
I brought sexy back, and all I got was store credit.
