"Yeah, but you know what?"
(He holds up a coin.)
"This one, this one right here... this was my dream, my wish. And it didn't come true. So I'm taking it back. I'm taking them all back."
This quarter is hand stamped on the head, oxidized, tumbled for shine and hand drilled before a 9mm silver plated jump ring is added, large enough for you to slip it over the clasp of any chain you have in mind.
If you'd like to customize this beyond the options we've described, please contact us to let us know what you have in mind.
Our process is very different from traditional engraving, which carves a light groove into the metal. Stamping is a more forceful technique, where each individual letter, number and symbol is stamped by hand, one at a time with a hammer and steel stamp. Because our products are not machine-made, reasonable variations are to be expected and contribute to the uniqueness and hand finished quality of each piece.

**Regarding our metals**
-Aluminum is our favorite material for rings and bracelets. It won't turn your skin green, won't oxidize or tarnish, and it loves water. Plus it's so lightweight, you might even forget you're wearing it!
-Copper and Brass will both naturally oxidize as well as react with moisture to turn skin green.
-Nickel silver will not oxidize, however it will react with moisture to turn skin green.
-Sterling silver will naturally oxidize over time.
-Sterling Silver, Brass and Copper can all be polished with any jewelry polishing cloth to restore the beautiful original shine.
