Our New Home Antiqued Key Ornament
Looking for the perfect ornament to add to your tree in celebration of your first christmas in your new home? This is the ornament for you with a little bit of gingham flare to add to the holiday feel.
Each ornament made with an antiqued looking key (approx 3" long for size reference), a copper circle hand stamped with state, nugold square stamped with OUR NEW HOME and year of choice, and aluminum rectangle hand stamped with the coordinates for your address. For finishing touch a green and red ribbon is added; giving it some Christmas flair.
Rectangle: add coordinates in personalization area and is limited to 12 characters and spaces per line (2 lines)
State: provide in personalization area
Year: select from drop down menu
You must provide coordinates as you want them to done. Must keep with in character limit.
Stamping Blanks: are raw metals (not plated). Aluminum (silver color) is naturally light weight and tarnish resistant. Copper and nugold will oxidize adding to the aged look. If you do not prefer that look you can polish them with a propolish pad.
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.
