Featuring an inspirational quote from Louisa May Alcott, this anticlastic aluminum cuff bracelet was stamped one letter at a time in the shape of a rolling wave with “far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them and try to follow where they lead.”
Cut as a flat 1.5 inch wide band from 18 gauge aluminum, the flat metal band pressed into hard neoprene with a convex steel die, to create the anticlastic shape, while forming the bracelet with a combination of pressure and working the metal with my hands. The ends were rounded and edges filed smooth by hand for a classy comfortable fit. Darkened with a black patina, the lettering in the Louisa May Alcott quote increases contrast and legibility against the soft silver metallic glow of natural brushed aluminum.
The cuff bracelet measuring 6 inches long by 1.5 inches wide, fit a medium sized wrist, is adjustable by bending and can also be ordered with a personalized fit in any size by noting your wrist circumference or bracelet size in the Personalized Options.
This bracelet can also be personalized with your own quotes, text, or sayings of equal length by entering your requests in the check out notes. The Alcott quote is approximately 160 characters or 33 words. It is also possible to stamp a much longer quote or create a custom bracelet in any metal with designs of your choosing.
