I ordered this keychain January 15, it was scheduled to ship February 5th, I messaged to see if they had shipped. NO RESPONSE! I messaged again 8 hours ago, NO RESPONSE! Valentines Day is Wednesday and I'm pretty sure I won't be receiving these in time. This is not how you run a business, I order from ETSY all the time and this is the first time I've had this happen. My next message will be with ETSY to receive my refund.

Adulting is super hard but this adorable grown up piggy bank will help you save money for something special! Send your kids off to college with a great money saving technique. I have a limited quantity of these pink jars so make sure to grab one now!
At this point, orders placed WILL NOT arrive by Christmas! I do have a few items READY TO SHIP which will be sent out immediately (US shipping 3-5 days), check them out in my ready to ship section. Thanks and Happy Holidays heart


Self Expression: Accessories for the soul

Thank you for checking out my shop! I am so grateful to be able to provide unique items for wonderful people :) Read on for a little bit about me, about my shop, how I got started and where I hope to go!

A little, tiny bit about me:
My name is Jen, I am 30 years old and I'm from New York. I love making things by hand whether it's for work or leisure. I have a great husband who is either very helpful or very distracting, depending on the day :) I put a lot of energy and passion into my work because I think that's the only way to make a great product. I try and always create from a very personal perspective, so that it can reach other's on an equally personal level. I hope that I can create items that are unique and interesting to help people express their inner self, no matter what that is!

I started my shop firstly because I love the Etsy community. As a long time shopper I was so inspired by the creativity expressed from each and every shop, I just had to be a part of it!

I discovered metal stamping in 2012 and I just fell in love with the process and the endless possibilities! Since metal stamping is done letter by letter I have complete freedom when it comes to making new items or custom items. I love trying to make something bold on a simple 1" pendant. Words are very powerful and sometimes it just takes a few to make a lasting impression (no pun intended). With the right combination of letters and words you can make something incredibly funny, or geeky, or meaningful, or something that inspires!

I chose keychains as a main focus because I think they're just awesome. I had a huge keychain collection as a kid, mostly from places that I traveled but also to commemorate activities or friendships or inside jokes. With keychains it's not something you have to remember to put on every day, or have to match to an outfit. Typically our keys go where we go, and it's nice to see a simple reminder of something you love on those keys.

Once I had a solid keychain foundation I expanded to necklaces and some other accessories as well. I love accessories, I can't get enough of them, I buy way too many myself so I just had to add that as an option!

I am always looking to expand with new ideas, new fun add ons to existing item, and new ways to express myself, and hopefully help you express yourself as well! I think that everyone deserves to find something that they never thought they'd be able to find, just to show them they're not alone in this world. I hope that my items can make people feel comfortable to be who they are, even if that's different from everyone else. I hope that my items can make people feel loved, and confident, and inspired, and positive. If you don't see what you need to make that happen, let me make you a custom item! Thanks for reading, and enjoy your shopping experience!

-Jen :)

Frequently asked questions

Sizing details

The sizing info for each item can be found in the item description. Typically all items are between 1" to 2". Please check the item description for specific sizing.

Custom and personalized orders

For custom items, just send me a detailed message! I cannot stamp anything on the back of any item, because a slight impression does show through. I can always add additional pendants to accommodate personalization.

My package didn't arrive, what do I do?

On the rare occasion that your package doesn't arrive, please message me to discuss where to go from there!

For packages that don't arrive because the buyer entered the incorrect address, no refunds or replacements will be provided by the seller. It is the buyer's responsibility to check that the shipping information is correct when placing an order.

How long will it take to get my item?

My processing time is 1-3 weeks. I make each item by hand, to order, and each item is made by me personally start to finish so I do sometimes need a little extra cushion time to make and ship every order. If you need an item within a certain time frame please message me BEFORE you purchase and I will do my best to accommodate your needs!

*During the holidays this processing time is not applicable, please look for more specific details in each Item Description!
