Cuff LOVE!

If Coco Chanel made it fashionable....

and Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter) harnessed it's secret powers....

then, how could I go wrong?

It is no secret that ever since I knew of my plans to relocate to the Southwest, the quest for the holy grail of turquoise cuff bracelets was afoot! I was not quite sure what I was looking for, or what exactly the cost $$$ would be, nor did I know how to identify authenticity, but I know what I like!


Yes, I am now the proud owner of this uber spectacular, chunky monkey of a cuff bracelet! I literally stumbled upon it at the local Sunday Antiques Fair here in Tucson. Wouldn't you know, I have always had a cuff such as this on my radar, but I had no intentions of finding one this day. I guess it is like finding love, you hunt for it day in and day out, sometimes you are so desperate you are exhausted, and just when you allow your guard to drop...Boom!....Poof! it is right under your nose. Hello beautiful, where have you been all my life?

It fits perfectly to my wrist and is so incredibly comfortable, literally I slept with it on for several nights! It is incredible! Now then, wouldn't a vintage squash blossom necklace be the most perfect pairing with the cuff? Well.....we will just have to wait and see what the future holds! Ahhh, though the suspense is killing me!
