Seize the day with this hand stamped Carpe Diem aluminum cuff bracelet.
Our process begins with custom cutting a bracelet blank from 14 gauge aluminum in a 3/8th in width using a bench shear. Stamped with Carpe Diem in an Ariel Font and shaped over a wooden mandrel with a nylon mallet, the bracelet blends an artistic touch with a bold delivery of the Carpe Diem message enhanced by a pewter black patina brushed into the stamped lettering for contrast against the silver glow of polished aluminum. The edges were hand filed and end tabs slightly rounded for a classy appearance and comfortable fit. As a final step, we burnish our aluminum with a silicon wheel to produce a satin finish for a soft glow.
As shown, this bracelet measures 6 inches long and will fit a 6 to 7 inch wrist, however you may order the bracelet in any size by entering your sizing requests in the check out notes. The 3003 series aluminum, used in this cuff bracelet is easy enough to bend and shape to a wrist without being flimsy, will not tarnish or discolour skin, and is extremely lightweight. Unlike thinner gauges of aluminum such as 18 and 20 gauges, when using 14 gauge aluminum the stamped lettering will not punch through the metal and the bracelet retains the cuff shape better.
Our Carpe Diem Bracelet is also available in solid sterling silver, solid 14k gold, bronze, and copper. To select your choice of colours/metals, simply use the drop down menu:
