Way, way, WAY back in the DAY...
A sweet lil' ol' (albeit rough & tumble) GYPSY CUFF was born!
On a day long ago, a GYPSY, wearin' thee PERFECT shade of PINK LIPSTICK was in her garage TOOLIN' around and HAMMERIN' about :-) with her LOVE for ALL THINGS old, worn, vintage and tarnished, she began taking note of the rather LARGE collections she had begun to amass!
With a well LOVED vintage leather belt in hand she thought.... what an AMAZING wrist CUFF, like 70's style,
she could make with this piece of vintage finery!
So she made one!
She wore this re-purposed vintage leather tooled belt CUFF for some time. Everywhere she wore it,EVERYONE remarked about her creation! AND ......
wanted one of their own! So being the EXPRESSIVE GYPSY that she is.....
she HAMMERED a vintage spoon and with the stamping set her HORSESHOEING DAD
had given her as a girl.......
she EXPRESSED herself and declared her
She began filling orders as fast as she could.
AND then a MAGICAL THING happened!
A fellow GYPSY came across these very
CUFFS on her journey and simply HAD to HAVE a BOAT LOAD!!! WHOA!
The two GYPSIES worked together to
tweak here and add there and Wah-lah!
A GYPSY STAR was BORN!!!
For years she kept her GYPSY FRIENDS
HAPPY with her One-of-a-kind CREATIONS!
Although the market went WILD when these hit, not only in sales, but others trying to re-create this NIFTY DESIGN! Accept NO SUBSTITUTE! :-)
She continues to CREATE and EVOLVE
these CUFFS as they have been a BEST SELLER for her for years! And these ORIGINAL LG DESIGNS are still very sought after!
