Shortly after opening the package, I tried to mold the bracelet on its own and its outer layer cracked. Thankfully the inner metal held up and the crack is not so obvious. I wouldn't try to bend it without your arm in it to limit how much pressure you can exert on it. Despite the above I'm glad I bought it. It really is unique and a very special piece. I like items that are not easily found in shops and this is one of those. It obviously is not of outstanding quality but it's fine for the price. I have a small wrist yet it fits fine. I'll have to wear it out to find out if it rotates like some bracelets do.
