Custom Pregnancy & Infant Loss Hand Stamped Ornament
Pregnancy & Infant Loss is difficult any time of the year, but the holidays seem to bring a different kind of ache. This is why I created ornaments to honor their memory and have them with us during that time of year. But even more perfect is these can be hung in your house year round.
Each ornament comes with silver antiqued angel wings with an aluminum circle (1") hand stamped with your choice of name, year or date and for finishing touch two glass pearls and baby feet charm are added; along with a white ribbon tied at top.
You can pick to have the pearls to be both pink or both blue or pink and blue to represent the pregnancy loss awareness colors. Know that depending on what you choose to have stamped on aluminum circle some may be covered by pearls.
Limited 18 characters for name, date, year etc. Includes spaces and punctuation. Note some may be covered by pearls.
The wings measure approx. 2 7/8" in length (top of loop to point of angel wings end) and approx. a little over 2 1/2" in width (at widest part)
Here is a list of materials:
- charms/angel wings: 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.
