Frequently Asked Questions

What does the Texture (Inside Opt) dropdown option mean?

This dropdown option covers two customization options: Texture and Inside Stamping. Since Etsy only allows for one dropdown variable to adjust price, we have to use this one to cover both our small upcharge for fully hammered texture as well as inside cuff stamping.

The Texture option is first and is either "No Texture," "Edges," or "Fully." "Edges" means that you want the edges of the cuff hammered and "Fully" means you want fully hammered, which is a small upcharge (currently +$2 USD).

The Inside Option, (+Inside), means that you wish to have a message stamped on the inside of your cuff. This is also a small upcharge (currently $+2.50 USD).

Sizing details

Bracelet cuffs should be around 1" to 1 1/2" smaller than your wrist. You should be able to slip the cuff over the side of your wrist and turn it into place. If the cuff is too small, you will need to open and close it constantly, and it will eventually break from the strain. You can measure your wrist with fabric measuring tape OR measure a string or strip of paper after you have wrapped it around your wrist.

Sizes available:

• 5" (child or small adult)
• 6" (default)
• 7" (large adult)

Rings:
This ring comes in three sizes: Small (US 5-6), Medium (US 7-8), and Large (US 9-10). The ring is adjustable within each size range and can be bent to match your finger more

Care instructions

Our aluminum jewelry will not tarnish, but sometimes the coloring in the letters can fade through wear.

This is easily fixed by using a black or colored permanent marker like a Sharpie. Fill in the faded lettering, allow to dry, then use a cloth or paper towel with a small amount of rubbing alcohol to wipe away the excess ink from the surface.

Average:

This is a great bookmark. Honestly I was skeptical when I bought it. But it's not too think for a book nor too this as to be flimsy; it's a perfect thickness to alleviate both of those problems. The edges are hammered nicely and smoothed out with no sharp edges. And the engraving was done very well. This is my new favorite bookmark.


Very well made. I got mine tooled on the edges and it looks great. It will be a perfect birthday gift. Thanks!


Fast shipping. He absolutely loved it!
