Very fast shipping, especially for a personalized item. The item arrived exactly as I had requested. I loved the picture when I first saw it, but once it arrived it surpassed my expectations. I had ordered this for a gift for my sister, but I will be ordering myself one as well! Fantastic job!

About

Our Story

Our Story
“I have always loved having something Unique! Something different, something that no one else has, and something that puts a smile in my heart every time I see it, think about it or do it!”

When deciding upon a name for our amazing little shop, we came across The Aspen Tree, which is strong, beautiful, and fierce! According to Celtic beliefs, the Aspen Tree symbolizes Transformation, Vision, and Being Fearless. This is what I aspire in my life and for my business! To always have the best quality, newest ideas and designs, and to master the customer - seller relationship.

“I learned about hand stamping and I just fell in love with it!”

We make items to REPRESENT YOUR LIFE and who you are! We love how we can use Hand Stamping, to create truly unique items tailored to you. Each piece that we make can never be duplicated or replicated. There will be slight variations between each one. This is because we use a little metal stamp and a hammer to punch out your words or designs all one letter at a time! We cut our own metal, polish it, and then mold it in to the beautiful creations you see in my shop! As life is a little bit messy and not always perfect, our pieces represents this well! Not everything will always line up perfect, like a machine does, all though we would like to emphasize, this will add so much more character to your items! So much heart is put into each piece, as well as a little bit of love that is continuously carried through each one, as it tells your story!

Being that each letter is individually stamped one at a time onto each piece of jewelry, by hand is why it can never be created again, as hard as we may try, it is impossible to get each letter placed in the same exact spot as the piece before. There is a process to hand stamped jewelry and each piece is made and tailored in its own special way.

It takes lots or time and heart to create and make each piece into masterpiece, and the fact it can never be recreated is always a plus in our eyes! Each piece is very special to us, instead of a machine pressing them out in batches, it is molded from a blank piece of dull metal into a bright shiny expression of you that you can take with you anywhere!

Thank you for allowing us to create your wonderful one of a kind item! We love what we do, and go above and beyond to make sure you are happy with your order and our services! We specialize in tailoring each piece to exactly your specifications!

We would like to introduce August Relics to you. We are so excited to be able to extend our creativeness to you with more items. At August Relics, you will find a touch of vintage & grace blended into beautiful décor. It is on Etsy as well.

Frequently asked questions

Care instructions

It is the customer’s responsibility to keep their items clean and protected. To keep jewelry dust and dirt free & to prevent any unwanted oxidation or tarnishing, please follow carefully. When not being worn, it should be stored in a closed jewelry box or bag. It should not be touching other jewelry, especially if the other jewelry is tarnished, and should never be left out on a dresser, table, etc.

Aluminum and Pewter will not tarnish. Copper does Patina, a type of tarnish to protect itself. Please keep in mind that Patina is just an oxidation process and does not permanently damage the Copper. It collects on the surface and needs to be rubbed, and or polished off periodically. If your Jewelry was oxidize on purpose do not polish.

What is the Production/Processing Time?

Current Production time is located on each item. Click on the item you wish to purchase, then click the shipping and policies tab to see how long it will take us to make the item.

This is only the time it will take us to make your item. Shipping time will depend on the shipping method you choose and the USPS. Regular shipping will be First Class 3-5 Shipping Days. We will email your Tracking when your order ships.

**SHIPPING UPGRADES**
You can select to add USPS Priority or Express Postage for an additional cost, as well as adding Signature Confirmation. This WILL NOT speed up your Production time, this is for expedited postage and Insurance.

Do you Ship outside of the US?

Yes. Your package will come marked merchandise, as they are not a Gift, you are paying for Goods. Some countries may charge some form of Duty Fees or Taxes. Please look into this, if you think your country may charge this. I can not refund you for this amount, as it is paid to your government, and I do not charge for this. Thank you for understanding.

What the USPS loose or are late delivering my package?

**LATE PACKAGES**
Depending on the season, and where you live, USPS can get behind on their time frame. Please contact your local post office, as I cannot be held liable for packages that take longer to get to you because of their delay.

**LOST PACKAGES**
I am not responsible for lost packages if they are coded Delivered via the USPS tracking delivery confirmation number that is provided to you once your item(s) ship. If for some reason your package is coded Delivered, but you have not received it, immediately call the USPS and file a claim. Please also check with your neighbors. I will do what I can to help, however this I am NOT responsible for these packages.

What is Hand Stamping?

Hand Stamping is using a hammer and a small metal letter/design stamp to manipulate the metal when making jewelry or accessories.

Our items are 100% Handmade by us, here at Sweet Aspen Jewels. We make each item from start to finish. We cut the metal, polish it, hammer each letter into the metal one at a time, oxidize each letter, and bend or assemble every single part of your item. Making sure to include all of your creative details into, your one of a kind item. All of this adds so much character to each of your items.

There will be slight variations from what you see in the photos to what will arrive as your order. Hand Stamping is a very unique art form, and it is impossible to duplicate exact replicas.
