Recycled Baseball!

The B Queen Cuff Bracelet!

"Queen of the Field" Besides loving art in every form, I'm a huge sports fan, love Hockey, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Soccer, Tennis, Golf and Polo.

My faves are Hockey, Football and Baseball!
Huge Yankees, Giants and Rangers Fan, yet my fave football player is Peyton Manning from the Colts, LOL!.The B Queen Cuff Bracelet!
Since I go to alot of games I became inspired to make a sports cuff mixed with some vintage and chic flare. This one is called: "Queen of the Field", for this project I used one recycled baseball (Older the better) which makes 2 cuffs, then added some glamour and glitz through vintage rhinestones, tiny pearls and an ornate silver clasp, then I lined the back of the baseball leather with a good quality beige wool.
The B Queen Cuff Bracelet! 3Each baseball will yield you 2 cuffs, on some cuffs I have lined the backing w/suede, colored leather or velvet. With these cuffs I have also dyed the leather of the baseball, added more rhinestones, pearls or flowers and charms.

Tommorrow Glenn and I are going to the Yankee Game: Yankee's vs. Orioles, I will be wearing this cuff and feeling like a true Queen of the Field!

Hope I inspired you to recycle objects around your home or garage, if baseballs aren't readily available, try recycling an old leather belt or leather clothing, try turning an old tie into a ribbon cuff bracelet or using as a belt, top the ribbon belt w/ a rhinestone pin.

Magic and Joy!
Lisa!

How do you cut the baseball? And where can I find more photos of your other cuffs? Do you sell these?
