It's amazing what a hammer, and a whole lotta love can make!

Hi, I'm Nikki, the boss lady, and overly bubbly personality heading a mini crafting empire

I'll start with some history....
Once upon a time there was a girl, this girl LOVED people, all things business related, and was crafty as heck. My story started when I wanted to find a really great unique long distance gift for my best friend, living on the other side of the country. I am what my husband calls an expert level shopper, and yet I couldn't find a single thing that expressed what I felt. How could I buy such a generic gift for someone so special? Some of the best gifts tell a story straight from your heart. Money was tight, but with a hammer and a whole lotta love, I made something really cool! This is where my entrepreneur spirit kicked in. I visited every craft store within a 20 mile radius, multiple times a week (yes you read that right).. each time entering the craft stores with a single coupon, buying a single item. After months of doing this (and feeling like a complete idiot running into the same people on the registers) I finally had a pretty formidable stockpile of tools and supplies to make stuff! Life was pretty tough at first, I worked a full time job, managed a household, and stayed up late every night working on growing a business. In 2012, my dreams came true and I was able to quit my day job to pursue my love of creating full time.

Make what you love, love what you make....
It's really amazing to make a living doing something you enjoy so much. I'm forever grateful to my loyal customers, and I hope that this shows in the quality of our products, service, and the level of customer service you receive. We don't just make jewelry and accessories, we make little sentiments that express how you feel. It's amazing how much emotion can be captured in such a small package. We truly hope you cherish your special hand crafted items.

Don't forget....
I'm sharing my visions with you on Etsy, but don't think that's all we can do. Custom work is our specialty, if you have an idea, know we probably have the materials and tools to make it a reality. We love knowing we've made someone's idea come to life.

I consider selling my wares putting little unique pieces of me out there for others to enjoy. I always wanted my life to make some sound, and it seems.. that sound.. is of a hammer hitting metal.

Frequently asked questions
What process do you use in making your jewelry?

We use a process referred to as "hand stamping". Each letter or symbol is struck into the metal using a hammer and steel stamp. It's fun, but very loud.
After our jewelry is hand stamped it is then placed into a rotary tumbler to polish for 4-6 hours. After it is removed it is then rinsed, dried, and we oxidize the letters. Jewelry is then given it's final finish (whether it is matte, shiny, or antique looking). We then coat it twice with a special wax to protect it, when that dries it is onto forming your jewelry. Bracelets are bent, necklaces have a hole drilled in them (for the jump ring) and rings are formed and hammered to size. It is then checked for perfection, given one last shine and packaged.

Can I get my jewelry wet?

No, Though we do put a protective coat on your jewelry you should remove it prior to showering, swimming, or any other activity that will expose it to excessive water. This includes taking rings off when you wash your hands. Over exposure to water will cause the dark lettering to fade.

Can I pick my jewelry up?

If you can come to Indian Orchard, Massachusetts we can arrange for your jewelry to be picked up in person if you need it in a hurry. Please contact us prior to purchase to work out the details and we will provide a coupon code to waive shipping if we agree on an arrangement.
