Brass Heart Keychain: A piece of my Heart Lives in Heaven
It hurts when a piece of our heart goes to heaven with a loved one who has passed. It is in the piece missing that we are able to remember them and the love we have for them. This keychain is a reminder of the loved one we lost and the love you have for them.
Each keychain comes with a brass heart (1 1/2") hand stamped with a piece of my heart lives in heaven. For finishing touch a brass antiqued angel wing is added.
Here is a list of materials:
- 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.
- The wing is brass, but is antiqued with brown to make it look aged. This coating will vary in darkness and can be scratched off.
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.
