Recently I attended the Holiday Charity Boutique in Scotts Valley, CA with a few of my girlfriends. The purpose of the event was to raise money for local charities while having a few cocktails and shopping. Local designers had tables assembled with their merchandise. Ruby Roxanne had her booth set up and it was booming!
I met Ruby a few years ago when she started making cuffs from her house. Ruby created her own company, Ruby Roxanne Designs and she makes custom-fit, unique, one-of-a-kind leather cuff bracelets. Ruby uses the finest leathers and workmanship is of the highest quality.
My cuffs, from a few years ago, are still in great shape and I continue to get a lot of use out of them. As with any designer, I love seeing the evolution of the design and seeing how their creativity blossoms and expands as they branch out to other areas. Ruby’s cuffs come in every color and texture imaginable. She has double wrap, triple button, and fringed leather cuffs! The possibilities are endless. She also expanded her line and now creates clutches with vintage brooches.
Cuffs are an easy way to accessorize an outfit. Since the cuffs come in a myriad of choices—you can personalize your look. My favorite feature of Ruby's cuffs are the clasps. She uses button-like gems. My first cuff has hot pink buttons. Pink is my favorite color and adding a splash of that to a patent black cuff is perfect. It’s subtle, eye-catching while not being overkill. If you are afraid to wear color or prints in your clothing, a cuff is great way to break away from the norm and spice it up!
Below are pictures of things that caught my eye at the Holiday Boutique. The clutches were in mohair leather and they had vintage brooches surrounded by feathers. They reminded me of something that would be in old Hitchcock films!
Ruby’s cuffs have also been spotted on celebrities and musicians. Everytime I wear any of Ruby’s designs, people ask come up to me and ask, “Where did you get that?” I’m very happy and proud to say, "Ruby Roxanne from Scotts Valley". Ruby is a talented, lovely, and self-made business woman. I can’t wait for the next trunk show and see what Ruby is up too.
