"well-behaved women seldom make history"
Laurel Thatcher Ulrich quote
cuff bracelet // handmade with ♥// hand stamped // adjustable // original design // one-of-a-kind

{ i n s p i r a t i o n } 

I love this quote. It reminds me of Rosa Parks breaking the rules and refusing to move to the back of the bus. It reminds me of the women suffrage movement that delivered rights to women that needed to be fought for. It reminds me that women must break the rules if they are to break the norms.

▲ 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!
