Home Is Where The Heart Is Necklace
Home is where your heart will always remain. No matter where you may wander, home will always hold a place in your heart. The perfect piece to showcase your love of your home state.
Each necklace comes with a copper or aluminum circle (3/4") with heart cutout and choice of brass state charm.
You can choose to have the wording on state filled in with ink or not.
Please add the state you want added in notes area of cart.
Note: the heart cutout will vary slightly in placement as they are not machine done. Also, the state charms cannot be put together as a puzzle, as sizing is not accurate; and due to size of each will alter the size of text on each state.
Here is a list of materials:
- chain: is stainless steel (not plated and tarnish resistant)
- charms: alloy based metals (containing a mixture of metals)
- 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.
