The retired pro golfer stopped by The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on May 13 and divulged the story behind how her diamond friendship bracelet made its way onto Taylor Swift’s wrist in January.

“All thanks to Travis Kelce,” Wie West told host Jimmy Fallon of how the moment came to be. “He’s the best.”

Wie West told Fallon that she originally met Travis Kelce, 34, through Justin Timberlake’s 8AM Golf Invitational. When the opportunity presented itself to get one of her custom bracelets — which she crafted in collaboration with Wove — to Swift, she took it.

“It’s like a really upscale friendship bracelet, really inspired by Taylor. It has diamonds, it has, like, the beads, you can personalize however you want,” she said of her bracelet collection. “So I messaged him and I was like, ‘Hey, you know, we made a bracelet inspired by Taylor, like, we would love to just give her one, I don’t care … what she does with it … I just want it to be given to her.”

Wie West, 34, said the moment she saw Swift wearing the bracelet on TV was “the craziest thing.”

Of course, she then had to explain the “TNT” on the bracelet to Fallon, who thought it meant dynamite.

“Maybe Travis and Taylor?” she said while shrugging.

Swift, 34, wore the “TNT” bracelet at the AFC Championship game between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Baltimore Ravens in January. Though Wie West’s ultimate goal was to get the bracelet to Swift, she also made a complementary bracelet for Kelce, which Wove shared on its Instagram.

Simone Kendle, CEO of Wove Made Inc., told PEOPLE previously that the bracelets were a true collaboration between Wie West, Kelce and the company as a whole.

“We were all hands on deck,” Kendle said.

“There was some serious Taylor fever going on at the time with her Eras Tour and Michelle was inspired by the friendship bracelets that were being exchanged at her concerts,” Kendle adds about the original collection. “She knew she wanted to do an elevated take on the beaded bracelets we saw people wearing at her concerts.”
