Mini Pregnancy And Infant Loss Ornament
The loss of a little one is pain like no other. During the holidays it can become even more difficult, but we can find comfort in the little things that allow us to keep their memory with us throughout the year. Making this the perfect addition to any tree or memorial in home or anywhere you like to have it up year round.
Each mini ornament comes with a glass bauble (1.38" [35mm]) filled with colored sand of choice. For finishing touch an aluminum circle (1/2") is stamped with choice of design or year and a bell are added.
The sand choices if you want a gender specific color you can have it all one color and the ribbon will match with that or you can have pink & blue to represent the pregnancy and infant loss awareness colors.
For the circle you can choose to have one of the designs shown in photo or a year.
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.
