I often find myself browsing the seemingly endless pages of handmade goods on Etsy. On one of my latest searches, I came across these stunning handmade leather cuff bracelets that really caught my eye.
Established in 2006, Hollyhu6tawk is run from beautiful British Columbia, Canada. Holly always loved designing, working with her hands, and creating. After graduating design school, she turned her passion into this amazing online shop. Specializing in 100% handmade leather cuffs, accessories, and wallets, Holly continues to work towards perfecting style with both function and quality.
I was offered a leather wrap bracelet and a pair of antique brass earrings to review. They arrived quickly, were packaged in such a way that made for easy delivery and was wrapped in decorative paper.

The bracelet is beautiful! Each cuff has a handprinted, original piece of artwork on it. In my case, I chose the tree silhouette print. I liked this one because it was neutral with just a hint of colour, so it will pair easily with almost anything. Since it has a button and elastic closure, it fits perfect with most wrist sizes (according to the product page up to 7" circumference). If you need a bigger size, that's no problem either. She can also do custom orders to mix and match prints and leather colours, if you see a couple that you like. So far I wear this more for casual occasions, going out with friends, shopping and the like, but I can also see me wearing it with a dressier blouse, or to add an edge to a girly dress. The leather was nice and soft against my skin. I appreciated that I didn't have to break it in to soften it, too!
The earrings are a light weight brass, which is perfect since I am not a fan of the heavy one's that make my ears ache. I could wear these all day, and even took a nap with them in by accident, without any problems. I love that in both pieces you can see that she draws her inspiration from the beauty in the nature around her. The only part of these earrings that I didn't like was the kidney shaped wire earring hooks. I just found them a little hard to put on, but that could have just been my inexperience with this particular closure. I think I am simply more accustomed to the classic earring hooks.
Overall, I would recommend Hollyhawk for anyone who loves nature inspired jewelry and accessories! The leather cuffs are stand out, and with such unique designs there is something for both men and women alike. Shipping is available to several countries (USA, Canada, UK, and more!) for very reasonable rates.
