Bracelets can come in many shapes and forms, but Gabriela Artigas' win the contest of being the most different. Rather than featuring a chain or bangle structure, the bracelets come in a leather construction.

Gabriela Artigas studied textile design in Mexico City and designed her first collection of jewelry in 2003. The first piece she created all on her own was from a colorful toothbrush she stumbled upon at the supermarket; she turned it into a cuff which then spawned thousands more due to the positive responses she received. Gabriela Artigas' Leather Bow Bracelet continues the artist's transformation of everyday objects into beautiful ones. A bow can be found in so many places, yet Gabriela Artigas has found a way to make it entirely lovely.
