designing dazzle for gameday

Shortly after Sissy’s Log Cabin opened in Jonesboro in 2012, the Pine Bluff based jewelry store saw an opportunity to create pieces specially tailored for the
Northeast Arkansas market.

“Sissy’s Log Cabin saw a need not met for the (Arkansas State University) fandom,” said Mark Sanders, Jonesboro store manager. “Hand-crafted exclusive and never ordinary jewelry for all Arkansas State fans had to be available.”

Sissy’s Log Cabin received licensing to create and sell jewelry using the Red Wolf and stAte logos and is recognized as an official jeweler of ASU. The Jonesboro store offers earrings, lapel pins, cuff bracelets, necklace pendants, cufflinks and other items in sterling silver or all gold.

Each piece is cut on a milling machine in Little Rock and is then finished at the Jonesboro store by in-house designers. The silver pieces can be enameled with red or black to complete the design. Prices range from $70 up to $695 for in-stock pieces, but for those looking for a specific design, Sissy’s can make custom
designs with the logos.

Visit Sissy’s Log Cabin, 2900 Parkwood Road, to see their complete collection of Red Wolf jewelry. For more information, call 336-0066.

Do you have Red Wolf pieces available at your Pine Bluff or Little Rock locations? The Red Wolf jewelry is only found in the Jonesboro store; however,
we can send pieces to our other stores at the request of a customer.

What types of custom pieces can you make and how long does it typically take?
If you dream of a Red Wolf ring, pendant or bracelet we don’t offer, we can create your perfect piece of jewelry. We have an experienced custom jeweler who can design and create anything your Red Wolf-loving heart desires. The design and creation process takes around 2-4 weeks, dependent on how intricate your design may be.

What has ben one of the more special items you’ve custom made with the Red Wolf logo? For an ASU alum who now lives in Little Rock, we created
diamond-encrusted gold Red Wolf earrings that were spectacular.

What tends to be your most popular A-State pieces? Women love the dangle earrings, both small and large. Those earrings are fabulous in Tailgate City or for bowl games! The cuff bracelets are also really fantastic as a game-day accessory. Men like the lapel pins and our cufflinks. A simple, understated way to flash your Red Wolf love!

Do customers sem to be looking for items available spec ificaly on game day or are they looking for pieces to wear everyday? We’ve found that the jewelry is extremely popular for game day, but more and more Red Wolf fans are wearing the pieces for everyday wear. You aren’t a Red Wolf fan only on the weekends!

What are some pieces that you have showcasing the Red Wolf logo that can be added to other collections? You can easily combine the chunky pieces of our Red Wolf collection with your Lagos, Konstantino, or even Pandora. The mix and match look for bracelets and necklaces are really on point with trends right now. You’ll not only be a fabulous Red Wolf fan, you’ll look pretty fantastic, too.
