These multi-strand leather cuffs are adorned with brass, copper, and silver colored spacers.
A simple snap closure ensures easy on-and-off. Multiple leather strands allow the bracelet to feel natural on your wrist, never hindering movement. Measures 9"L (from end to end) x 2.75" diameter x 2.5" thick.
Joseph works from a home workshop in the rough Mathare neighborhood outside Nairobi. This soft-spoken, artistic man employs three young men, and together they craft jewelry, keepsakes and personal accessories from leather, brass and bone. Joseph enjoys the exchange of ideas encouraged during our design sessions. This year he took on the challenge of using dyes to diversify his leather goods, with beautiful results.
To keep the strands of the cuff straight, you can press the bracelet under something heavy such as a book or your bed mattress. This type of care is not needed frequently, but will keep your cuff in beautiful condition for years to come.
