Cufflinks Made from Super Bowl Footballs Have a Special Pedigree for Ravens Fans

Charming cufflinks are one of the small ways a man can add some personal flair to a classic suit. They can add a bit of humor, a little sparkle, or simply display a monogram or crest. They’re small, but significant, which is why they make great gifts. And yet, there are gifts, and then there are gifts. That is to say, there are cufflinks that can make a man’s look unique, and then there are cufflinks that truly are unique themselves. In fact, each pair holds a little piece of Baltimore (and football) history. Literally. There are only around 40 sets in existence, and that’s because they’re made from an actual football used when the Ravens beat the 49ers to win the 2013 Super Bowl. Yes, that’s right. The brilliant folks at Tokens & Icons (a line that Sprezzatura has smartly been carrying for a while now) managed to get their hands on just one of the balls used in that amazing game, and have turned it into perhaps the coolest, most enviable men’s accessory ever.

Sprezzatura is always our go-to spot for totally unique and really classy gifts and accessories. And we’ve long coveted their other sports-memorabilia accessories–baseball cufflinks (made with balls used in Orioles games), bottle openers made from golf irons and more. But if you were anywhere within 100 miles of Baltimore in 2013, you know that there have been few moments that rocked this city quite as much as that Super Bowl win.

Each pair of cufflinks is set in sterling silver with swivel findings.  And each one features the scuffs and scratches of a ball played in one of the most memorable sporting events in our lifetimes.  Each one is back hallmarked “XLVII Ravens.” And in case there was any doubt in your mind about the authenticity of the ball, each cufflink comes with a tamper-evident hologram sticker adhered it and officially licensed by the National Football League itself. And each pair comes gift boxed with a Certificate of Authenticity as well that you can carry around to help silence the oh-so-jealous skeptics.

Tokens & Icons’ cufflinks made from this special Super Bowl football are available at Sprezzatura. Sprezzatura is located  in Stevenson Village,  10429 Stevenson Road in Stevenson. For more information, please call (410 415 5311) or email at info@sprezzatura.us.

Proprietor: Meet The Liza Behind Liza Byrd Boutique

Known for well-made, brightly-patterned clothes and distinctive ruffled blouses, Liza Byrd Boutique is a favorite among Baltimore’s preppiest residents. For nearly two decades, the boutique’s owner Liza Jarrett has honed her design skills and keen eye for color and pattern. Today, she has a loyal following in Baltimore and beyond.

Here, Jarrett dishes on the story behind the shop, what her weeks are like, and which products she loves as gifts:

BFB: How did you get started at Liza Byrd? What made you open the shop?

Liza Jarrett: My business started 18 years ago and has evolved from a small furniture and hand painted home accessory business to a ladies and girls ready to wear line with a unique twist.

I had been a buyer for Merry Go Round stores – I bought dresses for 1,200 stores. We had an in-house design team, so that’s where I got the foundation for clothing and what I do with design.

BFB: You have multiple locations and also show your products at a lot of shows. What is a typical week like for you?

LJ: My weeks are spent running from place to place. I meet with my seamstress twice a week and manage my Richmond  location, shipping new inventory twice a week. I am in and out at the shop in Stevenson Village and the weeks when I am on the road participating in trunk show events are spent loading merchandise, setting up show location and sales at the events on the road.

Additionally behind the scenes, I am continually working on our overseas production, keeping up with marketing and planning next season’s out of town shows.

BFB: Why did you choose Stevenson Village as a location?

LJ: I chose Stevenson because it is convenient to get to, lots of parking and a wonderful shopping environment without the hassles of mall locations.

MI 2014 Day 1-060BFB: What is your favorite thing in the shop right now?

 LJ: Our ruffle collar tops. They are such a statement piece and available in two silhouettes.

BFB: What is your go-to holiday gift recommendation?

 LJ: Our pompon cardis in three colors–a great shape and flattering on many shapes and sizes.

BFB: How do you choose what to carry in the shop?

 LJ: The clothes we carry are our designs with inspiration coming from anything and everything.

For accessories and other gift items, we select affordable and whimsical items that complement our lively patterns and whimsical fashions.

 Liza Byrd is located in Stevenson Village, at 10435 Stevenson Road in Stevenson, MD. For more information, visit www.lizabyrd.com.
