UNAPOLOGETIC {bar necklace}
handmade with ♥// hand stamped // original design // one-of-a-kind 

{ i n s p i r a t i o n } 
I stopped starting sentences with "I'm sorry" - I realized I was apologizing way too often and I decided to actively reduce the amount of sentences, emails, conversations, arguments I started with "I'm sorry." I feel like in the socialization of women we are taught to take up as little space as possible, cross your legs, tuck your arms in when you eat, be small [invisible even]... don't laugh so loud, don't be aggressive, and for heaven's sake: don't question authority... and if we break the social constructs, we should apologize... well, no, I'm reconditioning my mind to take up all the damn space I need, to not be ashamed of my loud obnoxious laughter that erupts from my belly without warning--- I am too loud, I acknowledge that I am aggressive and I love to question authority... I will not feel ashamed about defying social/gender norms. I will not apologize. Stay unapologetic.♥

Every single letter is hand stamped by me with my favorite hammer.. The necklace begins as a blank piece of metal that I hand stamp, oxidize, drill, file, hammer again & polish before it emerges as a one-of-a-kind bar necklace. I then attach the necklace plate to a delicate stainless steel chain that sits 16-18inches in length usually just under one's collarbone. Please note: The nature of hand stamping will produce this piece with some letters aligned differently...these are not flaws, these are the handmade 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 remove the necklace when showering, swimming or any water related activity to preserve the black ink the letters are oxidized with. Gracias!
