About

Welcome to HipHopHippos...

In case any of you were wondering, my son inspired my shop name. His favorite stuffed animal is a little mint green hippo! Here in my boutique you will find hand stamped personalized jewelry. I particularly like creating necklaces and mainly work with sterling silver, nu gold and high polish aluminum. I have always been creative and when I came across the art of hand stamping I immediately fell in love with the craft. I love the fact I am creating something meaningful and personal for people. I truly put my all into my work and hope you enjoy my little shop :)

Additional policies and FAQs
NOTE TO BUYERS:
Hand stamping jewelry is a time consuming and tedious process. I do my very best to make sure that alignment, depth, and spacing are consistent. If there are variations in any of these things they should not be looked at as flaws. It is these things that make each piece truely unique and special.

Hand Stamping Silver - How It's Done:

1. Each piece of silver is first buffed smooth to remove any scratches or imperfections. (If you take a moment and look closer at certain silver, you can identify the silver that has not been buffed. Scratches will be present.)
2. Then the stamping begins... Each character (one by one) is then carefully aligned and stamped using a flat head hammer to hit the top of the stamp. Using the correct force is very important in this process and takes patients and time to master.
3. After the characters have been stamped, you then oxidize the silver to make them stand out.
4. I then polish my silver to a shine for a professional look.
5. Next, a hole is punched at the top of the silver for a jumpring. You have to be carefull when doing this because you may marr the silver if the hole is punched to hard.
6. Finally, I add the final touches. I hand wrap dangles, add jumprings, and complete the chain.

CARING FOR YOUR SILVER:

Fine silver and sterling silver will sometimes tarnish over time due to skin oils and environmental factors. Keep your silver bright and shinny by simply following these helpful tips...

-When you are not wearing your silver, store it in an air tight container.
-Do not wear your silver in water.
-Use a polish cloth after each use to remove any skin oils or air pollutants.
-Keep away from hairspray, perfumes, and again...any other air pollutants.
