First Christmas in Heaven Ornament
Looking for a special ornament to honor the memory of your little one gone to soon, but celebrates their first Christmas in heaven as well? This hand stamped ornament is the perfect addition to your tree in celebrating their first Christmas in heaven and honoring their memory. Makes a wonderful sympathy gift.
Each ornament comes with an aluminum circle (2") hand stamped with First Christmas In Heaven along the edge and then aluminum circle stacked atop that stamped with your choice of personalization along edge and a heart design with year in center of that circle. For finishing touch glass pearl(s) and a white bow are added.
The personalization part is limited to 25 characters and spaces.
Here is a list of materials:
- 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.
