"Lo que no me mata, me alimenta" -Frida Kahlo quote & I hand-stamped a sugar skull on the side of the quote as Frida's art was often accompanied by a calveritas♥
{ i n s p i r a t i o n }
▲"Lo que no me mata, me alimenta" is a play on the popular phrase: "What doesn't kill me, makes me stronger"... but instead, "me alimenta" means "feeds me" which is how Frida Kahlo was quoted saying: "What doesn't kill me, feeds me" which i interpret to mean the "food" that fueled her art, what didn't kill her fed her inspiration, passion and love to keep creating admist the pain.. Frida Kahlo suffered many physical pains: she was diagnosed with polio as a child, was in a near fatal trolley accident that she survived with life-time phyical damage to her body to the toes she had to amputate when she was near the end of her life... and not to mention all the pain Diego Rivera inflicted on her heart & mind.... and despite all that... she survived and it didn't kill her... instead it fed her... fed her what she needed to keep going, to keep fighting, loving and best of all: fed her what she needed to keep painting. ♥
(please note: this is my personal interpretation of the quote based on my knowledge of Frida, so please feel free to "Google search" this quote & add your own interpretation to it :)

Every single letter is hand stamped by me with my favorite hammer.. the ring begins as a blank piece of metal that I hand stamp, oxidize, form, hammer again, polish, & emerges as a one-of-a-kind ring. I apply a clear sealant to the inside of the ring to prevent against "greening" of your finger for those with sensitive skin. 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 remove the ring when washing the dishes & for frequent hand washing to preserve the black ink the letters are oxidized with. Gracias!
