About Us

The Owners:

MagnifiCuffs LLC is owned and operated by husband and wife team, Ryan and Marcia Sheehan. 

We don't get out much.
Ryan and Marcia are proud parents of two sons, ages 5 and 3, and their faithful 11 year old long haired Chihuahua. 

They do get out a lot.
The Sheehan’s live in the Virginia suburbs, 15 miles from Washington, DC.  They are lucky enough to live within 30 miles of immediate family from both sides.  Marcia also has a sister in Richmond and her parents and oldest sister in New York. 

Ryan was born in California and spent a couple years in Colorado before his parents moved the family to the Northern Virginia area in the early 80's. 
 
Marcia's dad was in the Air Force so she moved to the area in the mid 90's.  Having lived in Germany, England, and multiple air force bases in the US, once she moved to Burke, she knew she would never stray far. 
 
Ryan and Marcia left their parents homes in Burke shortly after finishing school and floated around the NOVA area until the bought their first home when their oldest was 8 months old.  They are coming up on 5 years in the same home in June!  This is major for Marcia, as could be understood by anyone who knows about the military itch.  
  
"Everything Is Awesome!"

The Product:

 MagnifiCuffs are adorned fabric strips with strong magnets that allow each set to be used interchangeably with pants, shirts, blazers and dresses, without damaging the material.






Inception:

When Marcia created the first pair of MagnifiCuffs it was to transform her pants into capris. She wanted something that would keep the material rolled up, but that was also fashionable.

After she created her first set of MagnifiCuffs, Marcia was so excited she literally ran to her closet to find a shirt that better matched her dressed up capris.  As she looked through the closet, she saw one of her favorite shirts. This shirt had a fabric strip and button sewn into the sleeve, similar to the convertible pants that gave her the idea of MagnifiCuffs years ago.

Eureka!

MagnifiCuffs arent solely for converting pants to capris. They can be used to accessorize *any* article of clothing!
