One of the best things about blogging is not only connecting and discovering fabulous people, but also fabulous brands. Enter York Designs. I am head over heels in love with this company. It combines customization, needlepoint and bright colors into wearable art. Truly something special!
Head over to the website to check out all of the fabulous designs that are available. There is a design for anyone and everyone. I especially love the little elephant one (click here).
Laura, of York Designs, was kind enough to create a custom cuff for me. I am over-the-moon about the end product! One of my favorite color combos is navy + pink and the touch of gold in the monogram adds a bit of flair! This is definitely one of those pieces that people will ask you about.
The detail is perfect. I really enjoy the stamped "York Designs" on the inside of the cuff.
I personally plan to pair the cuff with pearls.
How fabulous is the card (with handwritten note) that came along with the cuff. Too cute for words. The card has all of my favorite things illustrated beautifully!
This is to give you an idea of the width of the cuff. It's a little thicker than most bracelets so it can be worn on its' own, but also can be paired with other bangles and baubles! I think it matches just perfectly with my DY ring!
With Valentine's day just around the corner (ahem, boys, that's Thursday February 14th) this would make the absolute perfect pressie! You could also get your whole sorority in on it and get yours customized with your letters.
Check out the York Designs Facebook page to see more fabulous designs. It's hard to pick a favorite. A big thank you goes out to Laura from YD for fabulous customer service and a quality product. Have you shopped York Designs before? What is your favorite design? Have a fabulous day!
**sidenote: this was supposed to post at the usual 6:00am scheduled time, however, Blogger reverts my scheduled posts back into drafts sometimes... WHY oh why does it do this? Does anyone else have this issue?! Help!!!!
