Grow In My Heart Necklace
DNA is not required when growing your family. Some grow in your heart rather than under your heart. This customizable adoption necklace is the perfect way to let them know they grew in your heart and are apart of a forever family now. Makes a wonderful adoption keepsake.

The circle is 3/4" for size reference.
I work with metals in raw form. Aluminum is light weight tarnish resistant whereas nugold and copper will oxidize, but can easily be polished with a propolish pad if desired.
18” is considered the average size and 24” is considered to be longer. However, note that where a necklace sits will depend on the size of individuals neck and where they prefer it to sit.
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.
