Rustic Cuff was created in the summer of 2011 by Jill Donovan. Jill’s lifelong obsession with cuffs and a need for a creative outlet turned into so much more. With her days filled with young children and her evenings filled with teaching Law at the University of Tulsa, Jill began teaching herself all aspects of leather making and metal design in her guest bedroom in the middle of the night.
Jill’s passion for quality and unique design helped Rustic Cuff to expand from a basic leather cuff line into an entire collection including exotic skins, original designs, and various types of metals.
Jill was born in Baltimore Maryland and eventually found her way to Tulsa, OK (via Pensacola Florida) where she met and married her husband, Terry. Jill is also an adjunct law professor at TU and mom to two daughters, Ireland and August, her inspiration and great helpers.
Rustic Cuff has been featured on Good Morning America, ABC’s The View, The Wendy Williams Show, and E!News. RC has also gained favor with celebrities including, Giuliana Rancic, Miranda Lambert, Gayle King, Kathie Lee Gifford, Elisabeth Hasselbeck , and GMA’s Lara Spencer to name a few.
Rustic Cuff opened up it’s first retail Showroom in November 2015 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. A second one opened up in Tulsa as well shortly after on the third week of January, 2016. Rustic Cuff can be found in over 250 boutique stores across the country.
