ShiZZles were born out of necessity. While working for the United States Post Office delivering mail I was hot! I mean really really hot! There were days when the heat reached 120 degrees. It made me want to rip those sleeves off my uniform! In fear that I'd get in trouble for removing the sleeves I started tying them up with rubber bands. Rubber bands are cheap and readily available but I wasn't winning any fashion contests. One day the idea for a piece of jewelry that scrunched up my sleeves popped into my head. I made and wore that first crude pair and random people on the street started complimenting them and asking where they could buy a set. That's when ShiZZles was born.
