25 Days of Holiday Gifts: Leather ID Cuff

A person is more than his or her initials, so why limit an ID bracelet to those symbols? The supple leather cuffs by local metalsmith Amanda Hulse (aka Indyspire) show who someone really is—a pipe-puffing sage, a six-string savant, a barcade entrepreneur. Other designs are available, too, or you can custom-order an icon that captures your gift recipient’s soul. Order by December 9 for delivery before Christmas. $65 each. Homespun: Modern Handmade, 869 Massachusetts Ave., 317-351-0280, or on Esty


Fernandez began writing for Indianapolis Monthly in 1995 while studying journalism at Indiana University. One of her freelance assignments required her to join a women's full-tackle football team for a season. She joined the staff in 2005 to edit IM's ancillary publications, including Indianapolis Monthly Home. In 2011, she became a senior editor responsible for the Circle City section as well as coverage of shopping, homes, and design-related topics. Now the director of editorial operations, she lives in Garfield Park.
