I Will Be Watching Over You Custom Memorial Keychain
This keychain makes the perfect custom piece to carry with you in memory of a little one gone to soon. A reminder that they will always be watching over you.
Each keychain comes with an aluminum circle (1") hand stamped with a heart in center and choice of name/date along edge. A rectangle (3/4"x1 1/2") in choice of metal hand stamped with ________ I will be watching over you and a little aluminum circle stamped with baby feet. For finishing touch a glass pearl, angel wing charm, open heart charm are added.
Please leave a note of the name and or date you would like stamped on the circle. Limit to 25 characters and spaces. Make sure to spell the way you want it to appear as I will go off what you give (cannot be in all uppercase unless short)
Here is a list of materials:
- charms: alloy based metals (containing a mixture of metals)
- 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.
