Announcement   Welcome to theKRAFTbox! I hand stamp metal and leather, creating personalized monogram, initial, and name jewelry and accessories. Every piece I create is by hand with metal stamps, hammer and anvil, and comes to life one letter and design element at a time. I hope you find something you love for yourself or someone special during your visit today. If I can help in any way, please send me an Etsy message.

*My current creation time is approximately 3-5 business days, M-F, excluding holidays.*
Creation time is the amount of time between when you pay for your order in full and when I ship it. I create each piece by hand, start to finish, after you place your order. If I foresee your order taking longer than 5 business days, I will contact you as soon as possible.

I take custom orders and special requests, and I welcome group orders (weddings, graduations, sports teams, etc.). Please contact me as early as possible before your event to allow plenty of time for the design, creation and shipping of your order. Message me through Etsy, and I will work with you to design the unique jewelry or accessories you are envisioning.

Stay a while and look around! I look forward to hearing from you.

Quick Ship! What surprised me the most about this bracelet is how light in weight it is. Forgot I was wearing it. Very comfortable. Lost the love of my life to suicide, and this helps to remind me to be strong. Thank you.

About

Hammering Metal to create wearable art!

I love working with metal! I've been down many adventurous creative roads that have led me to today... a workbench, metal bench block, hammer, and stamping and chasing tools to create personalized messages and memories in metal.

Hand stamped jewelry is a niche' I felt right at home in with my background as a professional photographer. What's the connection? Creating something personal, completely unique, and full of meaning and memories for the client! I love jewelry of all kinds, but a personalized hand-crafted piece is truly something special.

Hand stamping, unlike engraving, gives each piece a complete uniqueness that cannot be duplicated. For those who love the look of this art, there is no substitute. No machine or mass process can create what a metal anvil, hammer and individual letter or design stamp punches can.

My hand stamped jewelry and gifts are created one at a time, each metal impression made completely by hand. I use all kinds of metals from lightweight and durable aluminum, to classic copper and bronze, and timeless pewter. All of my materials in every unique piece are of the highest quality to create wearable, giftable metal art that lasts year after year.

Let me create something special and full of memories for you or a loved one today!

Peace, Love and Metal...

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I am happy to accommodate your custom and personalized order requests. Please submit any personalization EXACTLY as you want it to appear, including spaces, capitalization, punctuation, designs, etc.

Custom and personalized orders are not eligible for returns or refunds, unless I make a personalization mistake. If the error is mine, I will gladly cover return shipping to me, correction of the mistake, and shipping back to you.

Sizing details

Please reference pictures as well as the item description details. However, sizing is often difficult to determine by looking at pictures online, and even by reading size specifications.

Ask any questions related to sizing that determines your purchase decision prior to completing your order and payment.

What is “Hand Stamped”?

Hand stamped metal is the art of using forged steel stamps and a hammer, striking each character into metal to leave an impression.

No machine is used, and it is a very different process from engraving. Engraving scratches the design into the metal, removing metal. Stamping only displaces or "moves" the metal. Often the impressions show through to the back, like traditional military dog tags.

The imperfect handmade look of this technique is the charm of hand stamping for those who love it! The letter spacing and impression depth is never identical from letter to letter and piece to piece.

If the more perfect styling of engraved lettering appeals to you, you may prefer engraving for personalization over hand stamping.

Care instructions

Remove your hand stamped jewelry during extended exposure to water, including showering/bathing, swimming, washing dishes, etc. Swimming pool & ocean water properties can react adversely with many metal types.

Put your jewelry on last & take it off first. Avoid lotions, sprays, perfumes, cleaners, etc. These can coat, dull & damage your jewelry.

Store jewelry in a closed jewelry box, an airtight container or bag to prevent tarnishing. Don't store in your bathroom & protect against humidity or moisture.

A jewelry polishing cloth will restore your jewelry metal to its original luster. Don't use liquid or chemical cleaners. These can damage some metals & remove the darkening agents applied to the stamped areas.

Aluminum as a jewelry metal?

Aluminum is a terrific jewelry metal! It is great for those with metal sensitivities as it contains no nickel, lead or other metal irritants. It is durable and strong but also LIGHTWEIGHT. It is also very corrosive and tarnish resistant, and is lead, nickel and cadmium safe.
*Note: Please do not confuse the lightweight feel of aluminum for a low quality product! I use a high grade food-safe quality aluminum sheet metal. If you prefer heavy jewelry, aluminum may not be your preferred metal!

Other materials I use: pewter, sterling, copper, bronze, stainless steel, leather, beads and crystals, and other specialty materials.

*Note: Most pure metals can tarnish or darken over time. Polish with a jewelry cloth to restore luster and color.

When will I receive my order?

*My current creation time currently is about 3-5 business days, M-F, excluding holidays.*

Creation time is the amount of time between when you pay for your order in full and when I ship it. I create each piece by hand, start to finish, after you place your order. If I foresee your order taking longer than 5 business days, I will contact you as soon as possible.

Shipping Upgrade Options:
• Studio Rush + Priority Mail (4-8 days delivery time from your order date)
• Studio Rush + Express Mail (3-6 days delivery time from your order date)

If you choose either of these shipping upgrades at checkout, I will ship your order within 1-3 business days (M-F, excluding holidays).

*Custom and group orders vary in creation time.*

Wholesale availability

Please send me an Etsy message to inquire about wholesale product availability.

International Orders

International Buyers are responsible for paying any customs fees or import taxes upon receipt of your order. These are not extra shipping charges. They are a tax imposed by your receiving country for imported goods, and cannot be collected ahead of time by me, nor could I in any way pay these to your country in advance or from the proceeds of my sale to you.

Shipping outside of the US can take 2-4 weeks or even longer. Packages are also sometimes held in customs and neither of us can do anything about that, unfortunately.

Please message me in Etsy if you have any questions about placing an international order with me.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Every order from theKRAFTbox is packaged beautifully and securely in a jewelry gift box with ribbon. My standard packaging is a cream and cocoa brown box with a brown organza ribbon.

*Occasionally items due to size or other characteristics are shipped in another style of box or bag. They are always packaged securely and beautifully.*

I can't find an answer to my question.

Please feel free to message me in Etsy about any of my listings, the ordering process, available options, etc. I answer Etsy messages at least once a day, and I try to get back to you right away when at all possible.
