Story by Kranz & Ziegler offers the best leather bracelets on the market, and today’s feature will focus on the line’s snakeskin bracelet specifically in red. The Story leather bracelets are available in their trademark lambskin leather and the snakeskin material. The lambskin is buttery soft and I’ve gotten several colors because they’re so comfortable and chic to wear. This is my first snakeskin bracelet so I was excited to try this out and see if there was a different feel to these.
The red snakeskin is absolutely stunning in person, the color is deep and rich with a tinge of purple undertone. The berry shade is complemented by the metallic-y scales that shimmer in the light. It also pairs well with the red lambskin leather (one of my favorites!) and the coral bracelets seen above. I love matching gold with red as they bring out the luxuriousness of both materials.
Most of the pieces are available in all three finishes, so you can choose the combination based on the color of the leather. The Story gold-plated charms are relatively similar in price as the oxidized and silver charms. For this year’s Fall/Winter season, the brand released a number of geometric charms (unfortunately they’re not named so I’ll just leave it at that) and these have pavé CZ detailing which adds another level of sophistication. Like all of the charms and buttons, they stay tightly on the bracelet and won’t move around which is one of the advantages to this line.
I’ve found that the snakeskin is noticeably stiffer than the lambskin but not uncomfortable on, it will just take some time to wear in. It is an absolute must if you’re into the rocker glam look though. The Story bracelets are usually triple wrapped and listed as full length, so to order your size just divide by 3 to get your normal bracelet circumference. I generally wear a 7.5″ chain without Muranos so the 22.5″ Story bracelet fits pretty well. The snakeskin leather is slightly more expensive at $149, but that accounts for the fancier material. These look great on their own or stacked with other bracelets as well! Have you had your eye on the Story snakeskin leather? How do you think it compares to the lambskin bracelet?
I also want to mention a special introductory offer that some stores are running and the first one I’ve seen from Story: buy a bracelet and get one charm half off. I definitely took advantage of this great deal and bought a couple bracelets to get the Limelight and Showstopper tube charms.

I ordered on the phone with Smaxx & Kade (414-377-8202) and received wonderful service – free shipping and no tax too which can’t be beat!
