Footprints On My Heart Rustic Bell Ornament
Every time a bell rings and angel gets their wings; the saying that inspired this ornament. This sweet little bell ornament is the perfect bereavement gift.
Each mini ornament comes with brown rustic metal bell (approx. 30mm) and a brass heart stamped with footprints on my (heart design), brass smaller heart stamped with footprints. For finishing touch a heart charm and glass pearl and ribbon are added.
Here is a list of materials:
- jump rings: are brass or gold coated 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.
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.
