Christmas Together Bell Ornament
Looking for the perfect ornament to add to your tree in celebration of your christmas together? Whether celebrating your first christmas together as a couple or your 30th this is the ornament is for you if you love vintage looking bells and mixed metal flare.
Each ornament made with a small antiqued vintage looking bell and mixed metal blanks. Each blank is hand stamped: the brass circle (7/8") is stamped with your choice of wording along the edge and a heart in center, the copper circle is stamped with your choice of year, and the aluminum heart is stamped with your choice of state. To finish the ornament look I add red hanging ribbon.
The bell is 1" diameter and 1.5" in length
Here is a list of materials:
- stamping blanks: are actual metals in their raw forms. They are not plated.
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.
