I'll Always Wonder Who You Would've Been Ornament
When you lose a child you will find yourself wondering who they would've been. Having this memorial ornament in honor of your loss or losses can speak to knowing it is okay to imagine who they would've been. Makes a wonderful sympathy gift.
Each ornament comes with an aluminum circle (2") hand stamped with I'll always Wonder who you would've Been around the outer edge and an aluminum washer stamped with choice of names, dates, or wording and then in the center a snowflake to represent each loss. For finishing touch glass pearl(s) and a white bow are added.
When checking out please provide me with what you want stamped on washer; It is limited to 30 characters and spaces. And then how many snowflakes you need. If you are only doing one I can use the bigger snowflake; just let me know.
Here is a list of materials:
- 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.
