Hope Baby Dust Ornament
A journey through infertility can never have enough baby dust to offer hope. With my special differing dust options I had create some for your tree during the holiday season. Making them the perfect infertility sock buddy gift.
Each mini ornament comes with a glass bauble (1.38" [35mm]) filled with white baby dust. For finishing touch an aluminum circle (1/2") is stamped with HOPE and baby feet charm are added; and topped off with silver glitter ribbon
Each is filled approx. half way allowing for you to shake the dust around
Here is a list of materials:
- charms: alloy based metals (containing a mixture of metals)
- 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.
