Getting better at this hand stamping stuff!

I’ve been practicing my jewelry hand stamping, and while frustrating at times, I have had some successes….and even sold some pieces!The hardest thing I have come across (other than making sure my words are spelled correctly!!) is the patina process. I’ve slowly figured out what works and what doesn’t….so hopefully that means more hand stamping of jewelry findings (and anything else I can get my hands on!) in the future 🙂

I’ve also found patinas that are colored….so I can make pop color words on metal blanks! I think this would go great with the bright colors of summer that I’ve seen in clothing, accessories, etc!

What phrase or quote would you put on a piece of jewelry if you could?

I have been interested in the arts for longer than I can remember. I can’t dance, I can’t sing….so that just left creating something tangible and aesthetically pleasing. Having a bachelor’s in graphic communications, I’ve worked as a graphic designer or creative director for the past 10 years. I have now decided to branch out and embrace 3D design…something in college I completely didn’t understand and hated going to the class! However, rather than covering chairs in crayons or fabricating statues out of cardboard, I have chosen to create items that can be used and treasured for years to come. Each tile, coaster or piece that you see in the gallery or on my etsy store has been customized, and can even feature your own personal images if you so desire. So look around, get some ideas and let me take them to the next level by actually making them for you!

  1. Beautiful, it’s always so much fun when we discover what we can do and practice to make it prettier every day 🙂

    I’d love to write “Leap” on a pendant or something to add to my silver necklace. Seems fitting.
