The aluminum tag is hand cut to fit your text (shown is 2" x 1/2"), and is hand stamped, one letter at a time, before being oxidized and polished, and then strung on the silk.
Please put your quote or text and your font and color choices in the notes to seller box at checkout.
One end of the silk is tied to the tag, the other strung through it, to form a loop that you slip your wrist through. Then simply wrap the remaining ribbon around your wrist, and tuck the end under. Easy as pie, and interchangeable!
Additional silk wraps are available for $10 each here:

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.
