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

This is was a piece that would not let me be at peace until I stamped it out. I sat at my work station and just began stamping, there was no pre-planning or pre-designing... All i knew is I was having one of "those" days where I was annoyed by negativity and I began with "I'm Allergic to Negative" and after that, I just stamped out what came to me in the order it made itself known.I got to a stage in my life where I just don't like to deal with negativity if I can help it.. I'm not a fan of micro-management and I don't appreciate negative

I also want to make clear that my reference to the negative I am allergic to-- so it is not to be confused as encompassing entire groups of "people" or politics" or ex-lovers" etc...it is specific to the *NEGATIVE-people, *Negative Politics (social politics, people poltics, business politics,(wait are poltics ever positive?) *negative ex-lovers-- so NOT ALL ex-lovers, just the ones that want to be a negative force in your world somehow... etc, you get the drift. Either way, i want to provoke it to speak to you & to let em' know: Go away with all that negative- don't you see my bracelet? It says I am allergic to negative for a reason. not-gonna-deal-with-it.

Also to be noted, to each person who reads this, they shall add their own personal reference to each word and their own meaning and that is the beauty of words stamped on metal, they change for each viewer.
on with love.

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

{ 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!
