Baby's First Christmas in Heaven Ornament
Putting your baby's first Christmas ornament on the tree is something every parent looks forward to, however for some their child(ren) will celebrate their first christmas in heaven. I created this piece so parents could still put an ornament on the tree celebrating their little ones first Christmas; even though they are in heaven. Makes a wonderful sympathy gift.
Each ornament comes with an aluminum circle (2") hand stamped with First Christmas In Heaven around the outer edge and then in the center name and year. For finishing touch glass pearl(s) and a white bow are added.
When checking out please provide the name you want added to the ornament and the year needed. You have up to 3 lines for the name, this way if you want first, middle and last name on it you can do so. Using all three will cause the year to be shifted down. each line for the name is limited to 12 characters and spaces.
Here is a list of materials:
- jump rings: are stainless steel and not soldered, but are a thicker gauge so your piece will hold together under normal wear (they are used to hold pendants, charms or beads to chain)
- stamping blanks (are not plated): aluminum (silver color), copper (brown red; think of a penny), brass (yellow), nugold (a warm golden color; mix of copper and brass). The type of metal used will depend on the one listed in above details information or if you can select one then it will be the one you select.
*note aluminum is light weight naturally
Hand stamping is the process where I use forged metal stamps, which contain letters, numbers, punctuation or designs, a hammer and steel block. I individually strike each letter, number, punctuation or design into the metal to leave an impression. I do not use a machine, nor a press. Many confuse engraving to be the same as hand-stamping, however, it is a very different process. Engraving is machine done in which metal is taken away and usually has no character charm. With hand stamping spacing and impression depth is not exact, which is a charm to the process of hand stamping pieces. It is not to be seen as a flaw, but rather a perfectly imperfect custom hand made unique piece for you to treasure. This has become a form many love and appreciate.
