Thank you Lisa. As always they are perfect. I gave them to my friend who is hosting a birthday party for her granddaughter.

About

The Story of the Sports Cuff and Who is Lisa?

I come from a huge sports family, my dad played baseball, basketball and football, my nephews are groomed for the MLB, while I played basketball and baseball.

The first cuff I made was a baseball cuff in early 2004! Ihad this huge box of used baseballs sitting in the garage, the one on top had unraveled stitching due to wear and tear, so curious, to actually see the insert of a baseball, I unraveled the rest and looked at two baseball skins, thinking, this could be a bracelet, it wrapped nicely around my wrist, so I brought it into the studio, added lining, new stitching and other elements which formed the B-Cuff and paved the way to the other cuffs in my line.

I completed my new lucky sports cuff and wore it to Yankee Opening Day and every year after that. After speaking to several woman about sports and sports game gear, many of them preferred game caps, totes and jewelry over snug fitting t-shirts and jersey's while others who did, sometimes had no time to change into a sports attire before a game if it was after work. This led to friends commissioning me to make them cuffs and their friends, family and my online clients, which grew every year after that.

What started as a personal accessory to wear to Yankee Opening day, led to further development and my company.

My finished Cuffs and original project have been published in: -Make it Yourself from Better Homes and Gardens Oct., 2012-Sports World 2012, Jewelry Up-cycled by Sherri Haab -Bead Unique Magazine, All American Crafts, Spring 2010 -NJ Herald, Sussex County, NJ -Pipeline Newz -The Patch-Stitchin Steampunk, Sideline Babe, Sports Weekly, along with various other online and printed publications.

My sports cuffs grace the wrists of sports fans, celebs, ladies and gents within the MLB, NFL, NBA, Team leagues, little league moms and various groups. They have been shown at shows &, galleries. Sold in various stores across the country and mentioned in arenas.

The Original, B-Original, B-Cuff and additional sports cuffs are currently made from the baseballs that are in stock: vintage, used, up-cycled and new practice footballs from various teams, in addition to pro tennis balls, soccer and volley balls. Colored balls or printed balls are sometimes in stock, if not I hand dye each of them to fit the customer's specifications. Originally the hardware of the cuffs consist of clasps, but are now made with bendable metal for Uni-sex and contour sizing. Each piece is made by hand in USA!

Please note: Our clients range from sports players and celebs to leagues and colleges, & fans, all names are kept private and confidential, however all cuffs are photographed and placed on our site for customer inspiration when ordering.

About Lisa:
I’m a mixed media designer with several years of experience in various degrees of art and design. My book, Altered Art Circus, Quarry Books, is dedicated to my love of recycle, everything we see and own has an endless supply of uses, my job is to navigate one’s thought process into seeing this. One man’s trash is definitely one man’s treasure, a philosophy I engage in every aspect of my life.

Since 1996 I have brought to life the creative world that roams inside my head. From print zines and artwork, to the release of handmade craft supplies, unfinished and finished parts and embellishments in 2006. My sports cuffs in 2004, my book in 2007 to paper in 2009.

I'm a NJ native whose specialties range in a varied spectrum, I work in many mediums from sports cuffs to cupies, doll parts, embellishments to paper! Sports are apart of my life, fashion adorns me, jewelry dazzles me and crafts make me smile! I'm a creative sojourner embarking on every day adventures!

    In 1996 I began my creative journey w/Moonfaires World & Faerie Enchantment brands. Later in 2006 I introduced several lines including Cupieology & Piddlestixs. In 2004 the Sports Cuff Line & baseball cuff were born. I haven't looked back since!
