In Loving Memory Hand Stamped Keychain
Losing a loved one is never easy, but the memories we have of them will forever be with us. Having something tangible to keep in memory of them can help us during days we are sad or even on good days when we smile at beautiful memories. This hand stamped keychain is the perfect piece in loving memory of your loved one.
Each keychain comes with an aluminum rectangle (1 1/2"x1/4") hand stamped with choice of name (i.e. name, nickname), an aluminum circle (7/8") stamped with in loving memory, and an aluminum heart stamped with year of choice. For finishing touch an angel wing charm is added.
Here is a list of materials:
- charms: alloy based metals (containing a mixture of metals)
- 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.
