We oooh and ahhh over earrings, we swoon over statement squashes, and we can’t resist a ring that catches your eye… but it’s high time we give a little love to the unsung heroes of the accessory game: big, bold bracelets!
“This is going to come as a shock to many, but uh, I tend to get on a ‘kick’ for things,” Cheryl laughed. “And right now, it’s cuffs and bracelets. But not just any, I’m talking ones that stand out – real conversation-starters, ya know? Gauntlets got me started, I think. The wide leather look just has such strong 19th and 20th Century ranch hand vibes that it became integral, in my mind, to make them a part of Cowpoke U. And then you know how it goes – I start scouring every vendor’s table and vintage case looking for good gauntlet cuffs and along the way I find a Timothy Yazzie bracelet that is literally a turquoise-studded saddle, and I had to have it, and then I’m obsessed with detail, which leads me to falling in love with Shawna Erickson’s stuff, and next thing I know, I’m on the phone with her talking about custom collab just for DDR! It’s like ‘if you give a mouse a cookie’!”
