Michelle York Designs

Style Icons like Coco Chanel & Diana Vreeland were always seen photographed wearing cuffs. Matching ones on each wrist. I always thought that was such a dramatic statement.

I sometimes find myself making jewelry that harkens back to a time of great fashion statements.

Consider these cuffs as wire sculptures. They are in the category of ´abstractions´. I make a frame of woven wire and then I ´sew´ random beads onto the frame. Some of them are quite wide and very dramatic; others are narrower and have a more delicate quality. In either case, they have a vintage feel. The clasps are quite easy to use and hold very well. Although the cuffs are complex and time consuming to make; I enjoy making them and know you will enjoy wearing them as well. They are all one-of-a-kind.
