Welcome! Thanks for taking the time to check out our blog and we hope you enjoy it!
So…Hand Stamped Jewellery. I could talk for hours (days even!) about why I LOVE it. Hand stamped jewellery is a beautiful way to keep close to your heart a message that is special to you. Family, your journey, a fresh start, marriage, a milestone, loss, celebration, memory or an inspirational message. Really the list is endless. (see our Inspiration For You page).
In any given week we are designing with you to honour these journeys and experiences and striking it into your design, commemorating what is special to you. Just this week we have mums wanting their children’s names, graduation, loss of a mother, celebrating a midwife, loss of babies, inspirational message empowering a young woman, a birthday the love a mum has for her daughter and just to tell someone ‘I love you’.
All of these journeys are so personal and stamping this message is just as personal. No template, tools, guides or machines. Each piece as unique as your journey. This is why we love it, a sentimental hand crafted piece.
How do we make your personalised piece of hand stamped jewellery? With no templates or guides we use just our many years of practise to align your text, then with a metal stamp we place it on the blank and strike it with a brass hammer. This is why you see scuff marks on the back of your piece as we simply move the precious metal by striking it. Honestly my first piece of hand stamped jewellery was interesting…some sterling silver and a lot of time planning my design – it looked NOTHING like what I had planned :)
We would like to share with you on our blog everything we know about hand stamped jewellery and working with precious metals and soon some behind the scenes information! But for now we leave you with this and hope you have enjoyed reading about our LOVE for hand stamped jewellery.
