On one fantastic day in February of 2017, I finally decided to get the bangle. I'd been observing the owner of Metal Marvels, Katie Seller, in a few of the Facebook groups I was in. She was sharing her wins, and it was making me proud on her behalf, and I hadn't even bought my first bangle yet.

Around the same time, Elizabeth Warren was silenced because she tried to protest Jeff Sessions' U.S. Attorney General confirmation. Soon after the words “Nevertheless, She Persisted” were spoken by Mitch McConnell which became a favorite expression amongst feminists everywhere soon after.
Katie created a bangle for this very occasion, and it was the first bangle I ever ordered from her brand. Her Nevertheless, She Persisted bangle is still one of my favorites because of what it means to me as my first ever Metal Marvels bangle. Plus, the bangle donates 5% of the proceeds to Girls, Inc. Orange County, so you feel good when you pick it up!
1. Metal Marvels Products Are Hella Quality
Everything I have ever received from the Metal Marvels store has been quality. From the bangles to the cups to the necklaces and more. I have been fortunate enough to have bought so many awesome things from the store over the last year and a half.
All the products I bought have lasted amazingly well, even stuff I've had for almost a year and a half. You can tell that Katie takes her time when it comes to vetting products to make sure that they are made with quality materials.
2. There Is Always A Saying For The Kick In The Booty I Need
Katie has said it time and time again; she started her rebrand when she couldn't find the sayings she wanted her bangles and jewelry to say. She couldn't find the jewelry she wanted, so she made it. Boring mantras didn't excite her, so she created a fearless brand for even bold women.
With sayings like “Get To Werk, Bitch,” “You Call Me A Bitch Like It's A Bad Thing,” and “Have High Fucking Standards,” the jewelry really stands out, embraces the sailor in all of us, and sets aside the notion that dainty sayings motivate all women.
Even the bangles without cursing will give you the kick in the butt you need with phrases like, “Dreams Don't Have Deadlines,” “Girls Compete, Women Empower,” and “I Refuse To Fail.”
3. The People Who Follow Metal Marvels Are A Bunch Of Badass Ladies
I love the community that has been built around the Metal Marvels website. One of my favorite places to hang out is the Metal Marvels VIB Facebook group. It's filled with 4,000+ women from all over who love the brand and support each other and post fun memes and videos.
Not to mention, there is also a beautiful community across her other social media platforms like her Facebook and Instagram page.
You won't regret your time spent in this supportive and rad community.
4. Metal Marvels Loves To Give Back
Time and time again, I've seen Katie give back to charities across the country. At first, it was just when something struck her attention, but now she has an entire section on her website dedicated to giving back.
The I Am Collection is filled with fabulous jewelry, and each bangle gives back to a particular charity like the American Foundation For Suicide Prevention, Backstreet Community Arts, and Be The Match.
You won't regret how good it feels to get a beautiful bangle while giving back to a wonderful cause.
5. Metal Marvels Gave My Readers A Discount
I am all about saving money, and Metal Marvels was so kind in giving all of my readers a nice discount, 24/7! Yaaaaaas for savings!

I've been watching this brand blossom for about 18 months now, and I get more impressed with the brand every day. Katie has built such a beautiful brand with her website Metal Marvels, and her drive and determination to help bold women break the mold never ceases to amaze me.
Bonus: The Shipping Is Fantastic
Katie has outsourced the shipping process to a fulfillment team out of Texas, and these people kick some serious ass when it comes to shipping products out promptly. I've never had to wait too long for shipping when it comes to shopping with Metal Marvels.
Even though she doesn't have shipping done in-house, the team she outsourced the job to and the infrastructure she's set up makes everything feel so seamless as a customer. You would honestly never know that shipping isn't done in-house because everything is handled professionally and quickly.
Bonus, bonus: if you live in the U.S., you get FREE SHIPPING on all orders! This is such a great value, and it makes shopping the products so easy because you don't have to spend money on shipping products to your order.
What's On My Metal Marvels Wishlist
I thought I would close out this article by sharing a few things that are on my MM wishlist with y'all. We all need another reason to shop, right?!
We have all had that meeting where we question the sanity of the people who host it. Are you sure this needed to be a meeting? I left my office for this crap! Or, if you're like me, “I put on pants for this crap!” I adore this cup, and it comes in a 20 oz. and 30 oz. version!

I have been obsessing over Metal Marvels' thick bangles over the past few months. They make such a statement over their traditional dainty bangles.

Last, but not least, I've always wanted a bar necklace from Metal Marvels, and this one seems like the perfect first bar necklace to purchase. I love this saying, and I am a bit of a lot to handle.
