How to make a leather spiked statement cuff. Fashion tutorial designed by Xenia Kuhn for blog www.fashionrolla.com

Statement cuff bracelet
[Step by step tutorila]

Since my post about spiked statement cuffs was so popular, I've decided to show you how you can create your own custom made cuff bracelet. Honestly I didn't expect that it will come out so beautiful. For this cuff you will need beads in various sizes and form. For the cuff itself you can use leather, faux leather or any thick material. The screw back spikes are availabe on the  E-bay HERE. You also need some velcro, fabric glue and thick yarn for the beads. If you don't have a leather punch use the scissors to make small holes for the spikes. Enjoy!

Elvis diary

Remember Elvis? So he is back. A while ago I was "catsitting" this little monster while his owner was on a business trip. Elvis is a 4 months young puss full with irrepressible energy and hunger for everything what is not able to run away from him. And I mean it literally. Here is one day in the life of a puss named Elvis.

For the past few seasons cuff trend has been making waves on the catwalk and on the street. Instead of wearing thousand of bracelets (arm candy) like it was the trend last season, why not just to wear one amazing cuff? Here are some leather creations I've designed for my Etsy online shop. Available in 4 classic colors the spiked/beaded cuffs are handmade of italian leather. They look amazing and like my friends noticed are great for self defense. :)

[DIY] Lana Del Rey inspired orchid crown

DIY-sexy Lana del Rey inspired orchid crown with veil

Lana Del Rey inspired orchid crown

To be honest I am not a fan of Lana's music. But, I do love her style and her appear. This woman knows how to get in the spotlight and leave an unforgettable impression. I love her retro look with the red orchid in the British Vogue. Meanwhile the floral crown is one of her trademarks. There are so many tutorials for a floral headbands and they are all pretty much the same. My version of Lana's orchid crown is a little bit more sophisticated I think. As usual it's really easy to make and costs less than €5/$7.
