Ricki’s Birthday Cuff

Last week we were contacted by Anders Ruff, party planners from South Carolina who were putting together Bachelorette Emily Maynard’s daughter Ricki’s 7th birthday party. They had seen one of our felt cuffs on Etsy and asked us if we could recreate them for Ricki and her guests.

This is the felt cuff we have listed on Etsy.

We were given a very short time frame. Luckily we had enough materials on hand. Since they were for 7 year old’s we decided to go with a button closure instead of jewelry findings. It was also faster – the bracelets are all hand sewn and hand beaded so making them is very time consuming. Gelsey and I worked hard to get them done in time.

Here are the cuffs we sent.

I think they turned out well. What do you think?

An extra felt cuff. Gelsey claimed this one.

We saw a picture of Ricki from after the party and she was still wearing the cuff so I guess she liked it too.
