In Loving Memory Ornament
When someone you love becomes a memory you find the little things to keep them with you throughout the year. This memorial ornament is perfect way to honor their memory. Hang in on your tree or keep it displayed year round.
Each ornament comes with a copper circle (3") hand stamped with You're the most beautiful thing kept in my heart around the outer edge, an aluminum circle (2") stamped with a name and dates or names separated by dots, and then a brass heart stamped with In Loving Memory.
When checking out you will leave an note in cart area of what you want stamped on aluminum circle. Make sure you spell and punctuate it the way you want. Note it can only be all uppercase if short.
Here are some ideas of what to put:
12.12.12 George Henry Jr. Johnson 12.12.18
Henry (dot) Brenda (dot) Joseph (dot) Mary
Our Sweet Baby Boy
1980 Beloved Father, Husband & Son 2018
Here is a list of materials:
- 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.
