Based in North Carolina, Melvin is a collaboration between M. Clifford founder/chief designer Martha Clifford, and her niece Morgan Walker.
And while the South might have a reputation for their gun-lovin’ ways (sorry, our Blue State bias is showing), this leather cuff has all the makings of a pacifist. It’s made from unused bullets that the designers hammered down and melded together. With its antique gold finish against the rich camel-colored leather, what once served completely another purpose, is turned into something incredibly chic and creative.
Whether you choose to wear a single cuff on one wrist, or grab a pair to adorn each arm, Melvin surely shot the fashion target with this Bullet Bar Cuff.
Retail $243 to $273, depending on whether adorned with Swarovski crystals. Call 704-363-7590; www.mclifforddesigns.com
