Please, please, please only contact me here at Etsy and not via my personal email address. This is the fastest way to reach me, and I do my very best to reply to my Etsy messages as soon as possible. I will most likely never see your message if you email me, and I'd hate for you to feel like you didn't get great customer service! :)


1. Go to the first page of my shop, and click on "contact the shop owner" on the left hand side of the page, right under my picture. - OR -

2. Click on a listing, and then click on "ask a question" which is to the right of the price of the item. - OR -

3. Click on "request a custom order". You can find this in two different places. One being on the front page of my shop, left hand side, under my picture. Or you can find it directly under the picture of the item within the listing.


After you add your item to your cart, you will see a box under the picture of your item. The box will say "note to EllenBKeepsakes". This is where you will put all of the information I'll need to get started on creating your personalized keepsake!


My turnaround time varies, but usually I'm able to have your order ready to ship within a few days, if not sooner. If you need your order to arrive quickly, PLEASE CONTACT ME BEFORE ORDERING to ask if I can accommodate you.


Your hand stamped keepsake was created just for you. No two pieces will be exactly alike because each letter, number, and design is struck with a hammer by hand, not a machine. With that said, while I make every effort for them to be, letters may not be perfectly straight or perfectly spaced, and some impressions may be deeper than others. This is not to be viewed as flaws, but instead as part of the character, charm, and uniqueness of your piece being handcrafted.


I use quality metal when creating your keepsake. Your piece may be made of sterling silver, copper, or nu-gold. All of these metals will tarnish over time because of the natural process of oxidation that occurs. Your piece can easily be shined back to good as new simply by using a silver polishing cloth to remove light tarnish. Although the silver polishing cloth is for sterling silver, it is also great for copper and nu-gold.


1. DO store your jewelry in an airtight bag/jewelry pouch.
2. DO store your jewelry in a dark drawer (while in the airtight bag or pouch).
3. DON'T wear your jewelry in the shower, ocean, or pool.
4. DON'T spray perfume, hairspray, or other products while wearing your keepsake.
5. DON'T handle your keepsake unless lotion on your hands has been absorbed.
6. DON'T hang necklaces from hooks that expose it to air, or lie your jewelry on top of
your dresser when you aren't wearing it.

Air, light, water, chemicals, etc. will GREATLY speed up the oxidation process, making your piece tarnish faster, making it necessary to clean it more often.

ACCOMPLISHMENTS: (A little brag time now that we've covered the business!) :)

Through my involvement with The Artisan Group, an entertainment marketing organization whose mission is to introduce Hollywood to the best-of-the-best in handcrafted products, I was fortunate enough to have my sterling silver hammered moon necklace worn on the CW's hit tv show "The Vampire Diaries" by actress Nina Dobrev. I am still making this design, so it is still available for purchase in my shop!

Also through The Artisan Group, I was thrilled to gift my hand stamped pewter baby feet necklace to some celebrity moms on Mother's Day 2014. The moms included Halle Berry, Kelly Clarkson, Drew Barrymore, Kerry Washington and several others.

In 2014, my hand stamped aluminum skinny cuff bracelets also went to members of the press at a celebrity gifting suite that took place before The Golden Globes.

If you're still reading, THANK YOU!! I appreciate your time, and I look forward to creating your special keepsake!

Tracy :)
