I never said I was an easy person to love:::
original quote // cuff bracelet // handmade with ♥// hand stamped // adjustable // original design // one-of-a-kind
{ i n s p i r a t i o n }
I launched my jewelry line: Mano y Metal in 2010 and… "I never said I was an easy person to love" was one of the first phrases I came up with to hand stamp on a cuff bracelet... It came to me as I stared at the piece of metal and had to put it plainly and honestly: I never said I was an easy person to love. This design and quote have been on hiatus for the past few years, but I'm bringing back to the shop, all my original quotes that Mano y Metal is built upon.

{ s t a t s } 

  •  It is an original Mano y Metal quote & design.
  •  Handmade to order just for you.
  •  One of a Kind item (even if I duplicate it- it will never be identical).
  •  The bracelet measures: 1inch (width) x 6inches (length) 
  •  It is adjustable so can fit *most* wrist sizes (within the 6inch in length limitation)
  •  Please view photo of bracelet being worn for size approximation.
  •  bracelet is handmade from 100% pure Aluminum.
  •  I hand-stamped the phrase in a continuous line to wrap around the cuff bracelet to make it a piece of wearable art so that no matter at which angle you look at it-- you get a glimpse at the phrase.

The bracelet begins as a blank sheet of metal that I hand-stamp the words on it, letter-by-letter. I then I file it, tumble it, oxidize the letters to make them contrast against the color of the aluminum, file it some more, oxidize it again, polish it and then I apply a clear sealant to the inside of the bracelet as it will be close to your skin and finally I curve it by hand & hammer to create a lovely and unique cuff bracelet! The nature of hand stamping will produce this piece with some letters aligned differently...these are not flaws, these are the details that make each item I create one-of-a-kind, like you.

  • I do NOT stamp on the back/inside/reverse of any items.
  • It is recommended to avoid exposing the bracelet to water to preserve the black ink the letters are oxidized with. Gracias!
