About

Handstamped & Handcrafted Jewelry, Personalized For You

Who doesn't love something personal? A visual reminder of a moment in time, a special occasion, a milestone, a feeling? And to be able to give someone in your life a creation that conveys just the right sentiment? p r i c e l e s s.

I've always been crafty and I've always loved to create unique, personalized gifts. I can remember that even back in elementary school I would set out each fall to create special, handmade Christmas gifts for my friends and family, just as I'd seen my Mom do each year--she always cross-stitched a Christmas ornament for my boys each year...

I am thrilled to now be able to create one-of-a-kind pieces for customers all over the world! I especially enjoy working with my customers to help them to create personalized, meaningful pieces for those closest to them. Some of my favorite--and most popular--pieces are those I've created in collaboration with my customers.

I love reading. I love the written word. I am a big fan of personalization, definitions, quotes--typeface in general--all of which are incorporated into my designs.

I'm an attorney turned stay-at-home-mom of two energetic boys and I'm a wife to one wonderful husband. For me, creating jewelry and gifts is how I recharge--how I fill my cup so that I can fill my family's. After getting everyone else out the door, I love heading down to my craft room, putting on a podcast, & getting right to work!

Incidentally, it turns out that my fondness for letters and handstamping is no accident. When I told my Dad I had begun creating handstamped jewelry, he went out to his garage & returned to show me his own lettering set--even his own hand-forged hammer--which he used as a millwright when I was young, in the early days of his journey as a carpenter...

s m a l l. w o r l d.

Now I use his lettering set and hammer to help create HandstampedOriginals.

~~~~~~~
Some of my best sellers came about as collaborations with clients. Have an idea? Let me know! Any of the designs you see can be completely customized for you. If you see something you like but maybe want a different size, charm, font, etc., let me know and I will work with you until you are completely satisfied!

Please note that shop pictures show a good representation of the items. All the pieces are Handstamped Originals, Handstamped for you by me. Hand stamping is not engraving! Sometimes letters may not seem completely aligned or straight; this is part of the nature of the piece; it’s what makes your piece unique & one-of-a-kind--a HandstampedOriginal!

So glad you're here!

When placing orders please include personalization information, etc., in the message to seller portion of the transaction.
