About

A Little Bit About Me...

Like a lot of things in life, this business kind of started out as a fluke. I was home on maternity leave and came across a website about metal stamping. I was hooked! I watched some videos online and decided that I had to do this as well! I bought some bits from the USA and made my first piece for my husband. It was a key ring with the details of our son’s birth on it. Having a proud mumma moment, I posted it on Facebook and the next thing I knew, friends and family wanted one too! I was amazed!

In an effort to make some extra money, I decided to try and turn this into a little business to help pay for all of the expenses that a new child brings. Well, here we are! Four years and a new daughter later, I’m still in business and loving the joy that I create for people with my craft.

Like most artists, I do have some works that don’t turn out the way that I want them to. I throw them in my “F$#K IT” box and move on. However, I always remember that practice makes perfect and I don’t view these little mishaps as failures. I view them as a stepping stone to my next success.

Feeling fortunate to work from home most of the week, I do enjoy my craft and do whatever I can to ensure that my customer gets as much joy from the things that I create as I do creating them.

I’m still working at a “normal” job three days a week, yet it is my dream that one day I will be able to do this full time. Every purchase that you make from my shop helps me get there. Fingers crossed that one day this will happen!

Until your next shopping trip in my shop,

Emma

Frequently asked questions
What is this made from?

I mainly work with aluminium which is a versatile metal that gives a lovely finish just like stainless steel or silver. It is a lot lighter than other metals but the cost is also a lot less so I can offer affordable gifts.

I also work with copper, brass, sterling silver and stainless steel. If you see a design and would like it made in a different material then please feel free to drop me a custom order request.

How do I order?

Everything I make can have the wording changed. On most of the items I do there is an option to personalise it either with a drop down list or a box where you can enter your text. Sometimes these changes will mean the design may change slightly, I may reduce the number of design stamps used. If it is just a small change then I will keep it the same (i.e. replace Granny with Nanna or Dad with Daddy).

If you are unsure as to whether your changes will fit or are concerned about the design please feel free to drop me a message and we can discuss it further.

Sometimes I do need to use a little artistic licence to make your wording fit, I don't always have time to run this past you so please be aware of this when you order.

How long do they take to make?

I am usually making most days but I do have another job that I do Monday - Wednesday and I have 2 little ones who demands lots of my time. I adjust my Etsy dispatch times when I get busier so this is usually a good indication.

If you do need something in a hurry please message me before you order. Sometimes items are out of stock and have to be made and since the majority of my shapes are handmade in the UK this does add sometime to the delivery.

Custom and personalised orders

You can put your own wording on everything I make! If you want to change the wording on something and there isn't the option to do so then please feel free to drop me a custom order request.

If you've got something in mind but can't find it in my shop then just drop me a message and we can work on making you the perfect item.

What is Handstamping?

Good question ;) I use a heavy hammer to hit the top of a metal stamp which has either a letter of the alphabet or a design on it, this displaces the metal and leaves an imprint. Because of this I cannot always guarantee that the letters will line up correctly and sometimes the design stamp might be a little wonky. The beauty of a handmade piece.

Though I am a bit of a perfectionist so if I don't think something looks OK then I won't send it.

I use different methods to colour the imprints, I love using colour in my work and will try and put it in where ever I can but if you would rather just black then just let me know during check out.

Why is my Item Different from the Picture?

Sometimes due to the wording or style of item you choose I have to use a bit of artistic licence to ensure your item looks at its best. I am happy to take as much or as little direction as you wish to give me on the final appearance of your piece.

In the notes section during check out you can leave me a message on how you want your piece to look and if I have any questions I will message you back to check.

At busy times, Christmas/Fathers Day/Mothers Day/Valentines Day I am not always able to message due to time restraints.

Gift wrapping and packaging

We have cut back significantly on our use of plastics in 2018 and are pleased to announce that we no longer use any plastic in our packaging. All items are now sent in fully recyclable packaging and we encourage our customers to reuse their packaging where possible.

We also offer to pop your items in a gift box (subject to availability) and will also include a hand written note when gift message is selected at check out. For these orders we make sure that no invoice is included in the box.
