cuff bracelet // handmade with ♥// hand stamped // adjustable // original design // one-of-a-kind //

{ i n s p i r a t i o n }

This an original phrase sprouted organically from a mixture of my pet-peeve of people "fronting" and denying that they are a certain way because they refuse to OWN IT -- mixed with the people I know who are brave enough and have no problem "Owning it." I say if you are anything: a jerk, lover, hater, mover, dreamer, procrastinator.. OWN IT. and if its not the best characteristic to have, then you can move forward on changing it or keeping it (depending on your perspective) but you cannot do either if it isn't yours to own... meaning, how can you change or keep it if you haven't made it yours? So kudos to those who OWN IT. and for those who still haven't-- then when you see me wearing this bracelet down the street, don't be mad at me. The hand stamped creation that emerged IS NOT neat, it isn't perfect, and that is on purpose because it is my truth and most of the time: truth isn't perfect or neat... its bold and messy and I like the bracelet to be just so too.

Thanks for looking & reading!

  • It is an original Mano y Metal quote
  • One of a Kind item (even if I duplicate it- it will never be identical).
  • The wide bracelet measures: 2inch (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.
  • Wide cuff bracelet is handmade from 100% pure Aluminum.
  • I hand-stamped the phrase in rows 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.

{ h a n d m a d e } 
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!
