The Product:

Some of our favorite words, stamped on adjustable upcycled aluminum rings! Buy a few that speak to you and wear them as reminders, choosing one based on what you need on a given day!

The Story:

Local materials and local skills are married to make our beautiful aluminum pieces! Recycled aluminum is melted and poured into sand molds to set by makers who have been working with aluminum to make cooking pots for years. Then it is cleaned and handed over to another set of makers to be stamped with individual letters. Each piece is labor-full. Which we love, because more labor means more people with jobs!

The Details:

-adjustable, so one size fits many!

-materials: upcycled aluminum

-100% local materials
