Twyla Tharp Leather Shawl Cuff
Handmade in the JUL Studio in the United States
Available in Black, Espresso, Indigo, and Pewter
This cuff was inspired by the choreographer Twyla Tharp (born 1941) and her uncluttered and exuberant style of modern dance. You can see, in her choreography, the influences of her teachers - a dramatic physicality from Martha Graham, and an incorporation of everyday movement from Merce Cunningham. I see her choreography as dancey dance, often full of joy. This cuff is also uncluttered, and light like the emotional ambiance of Tharp's choreography. The tab of leather that extends beyond the snap is intended to represent the gestures of dancers' legs and arms as they execute her choreography.
This sleek shawl cuff is made from a half-inch wide strip of leather that wraps once around your knitwear and closes with a gunmetal snap. Lightweight and small in scale, this cuff is ideal for delicate knits in fingering and lace-weight fibers and also works with heavier yarns.
The two standard circumferences were designed for shawls - 5 inches and 6 inches
They weigh .1 ounces and .2 ounces respectively.
This cuff is fabulous as jewelry too and may be ordered in custom lengths.
If you wish to request a custom length, please let us know the finished measurement in a note at checkout. To obtain this measurement, please wrap a tape measure around your wrist in the manner you would like to wear the cuff. Inaccurate measurements provided are not the responsibility of JUL. All custom-length cuff sales are final.
