About

I create to embrace life.

i started my shop after being curious about metal stamping. As a military spouse I am always looking for new items to show my Marine Corps pride. Sometimes finding those items is hard to do, so I figured I would just create them myself. I decided to get a metal stamping kit, a small hammer and a wooden block and go to work. My work is perfectly imperfect and no two items will ever be exactly alike. I strive to make everything I make something that I would purchase for myself and as gifts for those I love. Eventually, my goal is to make a good income to help support my family by my Etsy shop alone. Being a military spouse, we move around so so much and it seems that no one wants to hire military spouses, so I figured if I put my all into this God will bless me and my family in return. I will be happy to help you create any custom order you would like, just private message me and we will get your ideas on to metal blanks!

I strive to make quality products and give 100% to my customers. If you have any custom requests I will do my best to make those happen. If you have any certain phrases or quotes you would like me to metal stamp I will happily do my best. Just let me know if you have any ideas :) Please keep in mind that with metal stamping no two items will ever be completely alike. Each piece is uniquely designed based on a certain item that you purchase and I will do my best to get each piece exactly like the one in the listing. If there is ever an occasion that you do not like the piece I created especially for you, just let me know and we will work it out together!

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Returns and exchanges
Please contact me within 7 days if you would like a refund. After 7 days I will not accept returns. Please note I will also not accept returns after the items have been worn or used. I will work with any customer to refund their products if they aren't not 100% happy. Let me know if there is anything you aren't completely happy with and we will work it out. I'm extremely easy to work with and I will be happy to help. However, the customer will have to pay for return shipping. Also, if it is a custom order I may have to charge to remake that item due to the nature of it being custom made.
Payment
Customers can choose accepted payment methods and pay upon checkout.
Shipping
Please always read my shop announcement before purchasing to see current processing and turn around time.

• What are my processing times?
My processing times, which is the time between when the order is placed and when I ship the order, is about 3-5 business days usually, or possible longer if I am away. If it is a custom order it may take up to 1-2 weeks to process. Please always read my shop announcements before placing your order to ensure processing times are normal at the time of your order.

• Will I offer insurance on all packages, or only some?
The shipping cost may include up to a $50 insurance.

• Will I accept returns, and will I reimburse buyers for return shipping costs?
I will accept returns if the customer is not 100% happy with their order. I cannot offer to pay shipping cost for a return though, the buyer must pay the cost to send back the order. I will issue a full refund when the product has been marked as shipped.

• What will I do when items are lost or damaged in the mail?
I will remake the items to copy the items that were lost or damaged to the best of my ability and resend the item. However, please keep in mind that metal stamped jewelry will never be exactly like the first piece ordered.

• What mail providers do I use?
I use United States Postal Service to ship my products.

• What shipping methods do I offer, and what are their average shipping times?
I use first class shipping for the small items and the shipping time for those is about 2-3 business days after processing times. You can also upgrade to priority shipping at checkout to receive your package faster, which I highly encourage for faster, better and more reliable shipping.

• Will I offer expedited shipping?
In certain circumstances I will offer expedited shipping, but I must receive an email from the buyer before they purchase the product so that I can change the cost of shipping that item if expedited shipping is requested.

• Will I ship internationally?
I do not ship internationally at this time.

PLEASE NOTE:
If your items are returned to me due to an issue with the address you provided I will have to recharge for shipping. Please always triple check your shipping address so we can avoid this situation and get your beautiful accessories to you as quickly as possible!
Additional policies and FAQs
Caring for your one of a kind pieces:
-Always remove jewelry or accessories when in water or cleaning. I don't advise wearing your pieces in the shower. Avoid harsh chemicals such as ammonia, bleach, lotions and perfumes, alcohol and acetone. The alloy in metal does not react well with these substances and can cause discoloration or unnecessary wear on your item. These chemicals also break down the alloy in the metal and can leave pits in your metal stamped charms or create a dull surface. Please keep in mind that metal will always tarnish faster than sterling silver, but I have to use metal in order to create the charms that I do. I also use metal chains to keep cost low for my buyers!

Please remember that each of my designs are hand stamped by me and not produced by a machine. Therefore, each piece may have slight differences. I strive to do my very best to create each one exactly as the listing, but with hand stamped jewelry there may be differences in color and textures than that on the listings. With my creations each piece is uniquely designed and each letter is hand stamped, one at a time by me, so this sometimes means that some letters will not line up perfectly and some may be deeper than others. This is what hand stamped jewelry is all about and this can guarantee that no one else in the world will have a piece of art exactly like yours :)

Any creative ideas in your mind that you would like to see put on metal? Message me through Etsy convo and i will create a piece just for you!
