Review:: C. Johannesen Bracelet

 Friday, August 31, 2012

Happy Friday my lovelies!

Today I am going to the US Open, which I am very excited about. I play tennis and it is my favorite game to watch but last year I could not attend the Open because I was already in school. This is one reason why I am glad my university starts later than others- I get to enjoy the tennis fun!

I am linking up to Long Distance Loving and wanted to show off what I was wearing this labor day weekend to the Open. I decided on a Lilly Pulitzer Lottie dress, J. Crew cardigan, jacks, and of course my new C. Johannesen bracelet.

C. Johannesen Studio makes custom leather and metal jewelry. Everything that comes out of the studio is one of a kind, well made, and of course fashionable. 

I love stores that feature ready to order products. There is definitely something special about knowing your product is unique and made for you. With C.Johannsen Studio this personalization goes more than just monogramming. You can put your favorite quote on something. 

When I was a child I would be read Dr. Seuss books and one quote really stuck to my sister and me:

"We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.”"

When I realized that C. Johannesen had this quote available on a wrap bracelet I knew that item was for me. The only problem was that I did not think the red leather was for me. This kind of problem would be difficult for other stores on etsy but not for C.Johannesen all you have to do is specify what color leather you want and they will make it for you!

I requested a light brown and when I got the bracelet it was perfect! The wrap bracelet style is my favorite and you can wrap it around your wrists 3-4 times!

The quotes that C.Johannesen features in the studio are of a big range from Hunger Games to Toy Story.
Can I just say how much I love these for a couple! I am all about stacking my bracelets and a row of leather compliments my dainty other bracelets. I always like to put a little edge to offset so much of my girly style. Leather isn't just for men, its a really nice addition to a bracelet stack!

Surprise! I have another bracelet to show you from C.Johannesen. It was so hard to choose which quote I liked most so I am so happy to show you both of my C.Johannesen bracelets!

This other work of art features a beautiful quote from Winnie the Pooh.

The quote reads:
"To my lovelies, “If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.”"

(Do you see why I started this post the way I did?)

I love both of the bracelets so much and would definitely want to buy some of the studios other pieces. Here are some other of my favorite works from C.Johannesen Studio

You say B*tch like its a bad thing! (I love this)

I would definitely recommend the wrap bracelet. It is trendy and personal and if you have a special line that is meaning to you this is the perfect way to show it off. I also think these make a great gift for spouses to show love in a personal way. I feel that the quality of leather is amazing and the workmanship is outstanding. No complaints here!

Which C.Johannesen piece is your favorite? Would you write your own favorite quote on his leather or choose one of the quotes he has chosen?

I have to say I'm already a huge fan of the Dr. Seuss's just so darling (and *SO* true!)! Sounds like you're up for a great weekend! Have a blast at the open!

Soooo jealous! It was a Labor Day tradition to attend the US Open during my many years living in Jersey. We would also attend women's semifinals Fridays. I am a major tennis fan too and I sooo miss those days of watching the grand slam matches in person. Enjoy, babe!

Now you'll actually have to "wear in" your bracelet. This as the leather will be a bit unruly at first so be careful when you put it on the first few times and make sure the braid is in the center and press on it a little to make sure it stays perfectly centered.
