Too Beautiful For Earth Hand Stamped Cuff
This cuff makes a wonderful piece to wear in memory of a little one lost far to soon.
Each aluminum cuff (6"x 1/4") comes hand stamped with too beautiful for earth. For finishing touch you can have an angel wing charm added as a dangle to the end of the cuff.
Here is a list of materials:
- charms: alloy based metals (containing a mixture of metals)
- jump rings: are stainless steel and not soldered, but are a thicker gauge so your piece will hold together under normal wear (they are used to hold pendants, charms or beads to chain)
- stamping blanks (are not plated): aluminum (silver color), copper (brown red; think of a penny), brass (yellow), nugold (a warm golden color; mix of copper and brass). The type of metal used will depend on the one listed in above details information or if you can select one then it will be the one you select.
*note aluminum is light weight naturally
Please note that with cuffs they aren't to be opened and closed all the time. You want to find the perfect placement and leave it be. So have the opening a bit smaller than your wrist but to where you can still push it on your wrist, but this way it doesn't fall off, but you can still put it on and take it off. The ends aren't meant to be closed each time, doing this will weaken the middle part of the cuff and cause it to distort.
Hand stamping is the process where I use forged metal stamps, which contain letters, numbers, punctuation or designs, a hammer and steel block. I individually strike each letter, number, punctuation or design into the metal to leave an impression. I do not use a machine, nor a press. Many confuse engraving to be the same as hand-stamping, however, it is a very different process. Engraving is machine done in which metal is taken away and usually has no character charm. With hand stamping spacing and impression depth is not exact, which is a charm to the process of hand stamping pieces. It is not to be seen as a flaw, but rather a perfectly imperfect custom hand made unique piece for you to treasure. This has become a form many love and appreciate.
