I’m lucky enough to have a few pieces of hand stamped jewelry and they are my favorite to wear.
I’m not sure what I love most about them.
It could be that they are personalized to fit my exact style. It could be that they are casual enough to wear every day but can also work well with my dressier wardrobe options. Or maybe it’s because they represent me, and what’s most important in my life, and just putting them on, reminds of how very much I love my family.
My favorite necklace has a key charm, a heart with my husbands initial stamped on it, a charm for each of my children with their names stamped on it, a Swarovski crystal representing each of their birthstones, and a pearl and bird charm that represent my grandmother, who passed away last year. See what I mean? What else could so genuinely represent all that I hold so close to my heart?
Creating these hand stamped pieces is special. Whether you’re keeping your jewelry for yourself, or giving it as a gift, it is something that immediately becomes a treasure. But jumping into hand stamped jewelry can be somewhat intimidating, and costly.
