Loved One Memorial Ornament
The memory of a loved one is something we cherish and want to keep with us. Making this the perfect piece to hang on your tree an keep them close at heart during the holidays or have in a special place at home where you keep it up year round.
Each ornament comes with an aluminum circle (3") hand stamped with choice of wording along outer edge, a small aluminum circle stamped with choice of date or wording for outer edge and a choice of year or name in center of circle. You can choose to have the heart design added as well.
Please leave a note of date(s) you want for smaller circle and the word for center (limited 4 characters for center). If you want longer name I can do it along outer edge and do a year in the center instead. Pleases spell how you'd like it to appear.

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.
