"I tried to drown my sorrows but the damn things learned to swim" -Frida Kahlo quote & Hand-stamped on a wide cuff bracelet.

Now ain't that the truth. The sorrows we ignore and try to smother into the oblivion of our subconscious - refuse to be ignored and will surface-- demanding to be faced. And I have found until faced, they do not stop gnawing at your soul. Alas, as I find most of the time: truth not only hurts but truth is also quite funny, a mixture that Frida Kahlo so elegantly captured in this quote of hers. ♥ Thanks for looking!

  • It is an original Mano y Metal design.
  • 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.

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!
