Announcement    Our exquisitely hand crafted leather cuff bracelets are not mass-produced - there are no machines, presses, or automation of any kind. They are each carefully handcrafted, honest-to-goodness one of a kind pieces made with our (my husband and my) very own hands! We use recycled leather belts and rescued/reclaimed leather scraps, too, so they are never made “in bulk” - which means no two pieces are exactly alike. So that item you love that you place in your cart to “hold” for future purchase could very likely get snatched right out from under you. So don't hesitate to treat yourself or someone you love to a wearable artisan piece made with love from Speckled Sparrow LLC today!

About SpeckledSparrowLLC

On Etsy since 2019

Handmade matters.

I am a maker of ALL THE THINGS. I knit, I quilt, I dabble in some art journaling, I make soap. I've made ornaments and wreaths and earrings and bracelets and, and AND...It makes me deliriously happy to lovingly make beautiful, heartfelt things for the people I love. And while the giddy, gobsmacked, genuinely grateful responses to my handmade gifts is absolutely priceless, it never really occurred to me to turn my crafty tendencies into a business. Even though loads of people have said "you should sell these!" I always just pooh-poohed the idea.

BUT THEN I gifted a sweet little leather cuff bracelet hand-stamped with the Hebrew word "hazak" to a friend who is on a waiting list to become an adoptive parent. She had told me about the word which means "be strong and courageous." Later, I received the most touching thank you note from her, which read "Karen, you have to know how much I genuinely, truly LOVE the bracelet. It's such a gift! I'll treasure it forever! I'm so thankful God directed our paths. You have been a joy and encouragement to me...God used your creative, generous heart to bless mine. He used you today to remind me to be strong and courageous regarding our future. I can look down on it a thousand times a day and remember. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you."

CUE THE WATERWORKS!! This. This right here is why I started this little Etsy shop. I was so humbled and grateful for this expression of thanks. In that moment, it suddenly struck me that maybe I was meant to use this God-given gift of creativity for something broader than just my little circle of friends and family. That maybe it could be used for something much more, a higher purpose. Once that little seed was planted, it grew like crazy! So here we are - Speckled Sparrow LLC was born.

    20+ years ago, I was an art major - now I’m in the nuclear power biz - an intense, intellectually stimulating profession, for sure. But my real passion lies in handcrafting beautiful things that will remind recipients that they are so very loved.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes! Custom orders are my jam! It makes me deliriously happy to create a one of a kind piece just for you. If there is a cuff you crave that’s already sold, or you see a design that you’d like tweaked just for you, please contact me via Etsy convo. Custom orders may require up to ten to 14 business days before shipping. Once we settle on the details, I will create a custom listing for your individual piece, and require payment within 48 hours of listing. Payment is required before custom work begins, and custom order sales are final.

I hand stamp each individual letter spelled as it is provided to me by you. I cannot be responsible for customer spelling errors or other customer errors. Double check your words, dates, etc.

Care instructions

- Avoid getting your Speckled Sparrow LLC cuff wet, and avoid getting lotion or perfume directly on the piece.
- Store your cuff in a cool, dry place (i.e., not in the humid bathroom or on the hot dashboard of your car!)
- Do not use any chemical jewelry cleaners on your cuff. Use a soft, dry cloth only.
- Components like filigrees, medallions, stampings, metal plates, and other adornments are expertly contoured with specialty tools to match the curve of the cuff. Further manipulation may result in damage to your cuff.

Additional shipping and address info

I ship first class via the United States Postal Service. Typically this means your package will deliver 3 - 5 business days AFTER being shipped if you live in the US. You will get a tracking number for no additional charge. Please make sure your shipping address is correct before you check out. I cannot change the address once the order has been placed. I am just as excited as you for you to receive your cuff, so check your address! Then double check it. Maybe even triple check it!

About the leather used

The leather used to make the cuffs is salvaged from old genuine leather belts found in thrift shop treasure troves! Please note that because the belts were previously worn and loved, there will be unique markings, scars, surface wear, distressing, and other signs of aging that add to the character of the finished cuff. These are signs that I actually seek out when I am out hunting for belts! I take photos from several angles so you can see all these beautiful markings. Also, the leather used varies in stiffness/softness/pliability. Please convo me if you have questions or want additional photos of a piece. These markings are NOT considered defects, and by placing an order you have agreed and understand this. Refunds will not be given.

Satisfaction Guarantee

I take great pride in creating a piece that you will love and treasure for a long time to come. Your satisfaction is important to me, and I want you to be deliriously happy with your purchase and your experience with Speckled Sparrow LLC.

If you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, please contact me at speckledsparrowllc@yahoo.com and I will make every reasonable effort to resolve any issues. Please give me the chance to rectify the situation prior to leaving feedback.

Thank you for supporting my small business!

About the metals used

The metal blanks I use for hand stamping are copper, aluminum, and/or brass. Please note that copper and brass will develop a lovely patina over time. This is totally normal and not a defect in the piece. The metal can be gently polished using just a soft cloth if you prefer the original look of the metal.

If your item is damaged/defective

I treat your cuffs with TLC while they are in my possession. Once it transfers from me to the post office, I am not responsible for it. If you are concerned about loss/theft, purchase the insurance upgrade. If an item is damaged in transit, it is the buyer’s responsibility to file a claim with the USPS.

Before packaging your order, I conduct a thorough quality control check for any defects that would detract from your complete delight in the product. If you find your item has a defect, provide photos of the item as well as the original packaging, and I will determine the best course of action. Defects must be reported within 5 days of delivery. If a repair or replacement is warranted, the item must returned at the buyer’s expense.

Sale Item Policy

On rare occasions, we will offer a sale or coupon code. Please note, items MUST be purchased during an ACTIVE sale to receive the sale price. Speckled Sparrow LLC will NOT refund sale discounts on items purchased outside of the active sale dates/times (i.e. refunds will not be given if the item has been purchased then goes on sale at a later date).

Special note to buyers outside the United States

Buyers outside the US are are responsible for any customs and import taxes that may apply. I am not responsible for delays due to customs. If for any reason you would like to return the item, you must notify me within 14 days of receipt of the item. Upon return shipping of the item (at the buyer’s expense) and in the original condition, a full refund will be issued.
