Welcome to Born In Brooklyn Leather, making custom fit leather bracelets, wrist wraps, bangles and necklaces since 2009. Everything is made in my studio in Brooklyn, NY using only real leather with sterling silver, other lead-free metals, and genuine semi-precious stones. Some styles are just for women, but most of my jewelry is for guys too. I can make my bracelets in any size you need, and in a wide range of colors -- from classic neutrals to bright red, blue, green, and orange, to vintage grays, browns and blues.

I now have a collection of sterling silver charms you can use to personalize your jewelry piece. They're high-quality solid silver charms that can move along the length of a bracelet or hang from a necklace. Perfect for adding special meaning to a gift.

A piece of jewelry from my shop makes a unique and affordable gift. If you need help choosing the right size, please get in touch with me. I can help figure out what size will be needed. Your satisfaction is guaranteed.

The dyes used in my leathers meet all requirements of California laws regarding lead free jewelry, and also comply with the even stricter German Goods Ordinance. The metals in my jewelry are all lead-free as well.

I offer an unconditional money-back guarantee. If you don't love the jewelry you receive from me, or if the size isn't right, or for any reason, you can return your order to me for an exchange or refund, whichever you prefer. I love my customers, and I really want you to be happy with your purchase.

Looking forward to making a special piece of jewelry for you or someone you love. Thank you for having a look around! I hope you'll find something you like.

All the Best,

Allison Gentile

Bracelet is great quality and looks great. Owners customer service was fantastic! After buying a bracelet that was slightly too big, I sent it back for a smaller size after some advice from Owner. Mailing it back the store, the package was temporarily misplaced by USPS. Owner was prepared to ship out my new one anyway without charge (awesome). Then the bracelet turned up and my new one was sent out the next morning. My new bracelet is now happily on my girlfriend's wrist all thanks to Allison from BornInBrooklyn (the owner)

About

The Story of Born In Brooklyn Leather

I once took a trip to Montreal. While I was there I bought a handmade leather bracelet from a guy who was selling them on the street. I watched him making my bracelet before I bought it. How fascinating. That bracelet was special to me and I wore it for years. I loved that it wasn't a mass-produced item, and that when I bought it I made a brief connection with the person who created it. It got me dreaming about making beautiful things and selling them directly to people.

Since launching Born In Brooklyn Leather in 2009, I've had the chance to make that dream a reality. It's like magic to me -- like going back to earlier days before large corporations and overseas factories came to dominate the American marketplace. I love communicating with my customers, getting a feel for who they are, and hearing what they have to say about the things they've received from my shop. There's something really special to me about that connection, when another person likes my work enough to make it their own.

Everything I sell comes with an unconditional money-back guarantee. If you're not happy with your purchase for any reason I'll give you an exchange or a full refund of the purchase price, whichever you prefer. If you need help choosing the right size or if you have any questions, please send me a convo. I'll get back to you within 24 hours.

I care about quality workmanship, perfect fit, and beauty. I love making things with my hands. I'd be honored to make a special piece of jewelry just for you.

All the best,
Allison Gentile

Welcome to Born In Brooklyn Leather!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept all major credit cards and PayPal.
Shipping
FREE SHIPPING IN THE US with standard delivery. Priority Mail is available for an extra fee.

FOR CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE THE US:
I offer flat-rate shipping on all international packages. Buy more than one item at a time, ship everything to the same address, and you'll only pay shipping on the first piece -- the rest ship for free.

SHIPPING METHODS:
I ship standard packages using the US Postal Service First Class with Delivery Confirmation. This gives a tracking code for US orders. It also provides a tracking code for many, but not all, other countries I ship to. I always send an email to confirm shipment after the package is mailed. International buyers must pay for any customs fees, taxes, tariffs, etc. that may be charged upon delivery.

ITEMS LOST IN THE MAIL:
Until the package is marked as delivered in the tracking, I will maintain responsibility for it. After it's marked as delivered, I'm no longer responsible if the package gets lost or stolen. But if your order gets lost in the mail without being delivered, I will replace it at no additional cost to you. A reasonable wait time has to go by first to see if the package will eventually work its way through the system. My policy is to wait six weeks from the day the original order was shipped before sending out a replacement.

Since opening my business in 2009, not one package I've mailed to a U.S. destination has ever been lost, although more than a few have been held up for long periods of time. Among the many packages I've shipped to other countries, only one was ever lost for good. It can take weeks, though, for a package to finally arrive, and the delay is always inexplicable. There's never any rhyme or reason as to why one package goes through quickly with no problem while the next one (even to the same customer) sits for weeks in one location without moving. Overall, though, I have to say that the U.S. Postal Service does its job remarkably well, and the international postal network is a miracle.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you're unhappy with your order for any reason, please let me know right away. You can exchange or return your item for a full refund of your purchase price. Get in touch with me and let me know what's wrong and I'll do everything possible to make it right. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed.
