Heartfelt Words Necklace
Adoption is a beautiful thing. Showing families are not defined by DNA. They are defined by the ones who we chose and want in our lives forever. This adoption necklace is the perfect way to let them know they are chosen & wanted forever. Makes a wonderful adoption keepsake.
•comes with metal hearts stamped with chosen (aluminum), forever (nugold), and wanted (copper)
•comes with tarnish resistant components and chain, providing you with strength and a more hypoallergenic metal (not plated)
•hand stamped by me, providing you with a unique hand made piece, making it perfect for gift giving
The hearts are 3/4" for size reference.
I work with metals in raw form and are not plated. 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.
