Welcome to my Etsy Shop-Lasting Impressions! I make custom hand stamped jewelry. I love creating unique, one of a kind pieces. If you do not see exactly what you are looking for in my listings, please message me for a custom order!! I try to respond to all messages within an hour!

Please note: I only stamp on one side unless otherwise indicated. All items are given a brushed finish. Pieces are made of aluminum which is lightweight, hypo allergenic and won't tarnish.

I ship 1st Class USPS which is typically 2-7 days within the USA. You have an option to upgrade to Priority shipping at checkout. This is 1-3 days. Please keep in mind these windows DO NOT include my production/lead time. This only includes actual shipping time. Paying for Priority shipping does not shorten the actual lead time it takes me to make your order. All orders are made in order of receipt and payment. Feel free to message me if you need your order rushed. I try to accommodate my customers to the best of my ability.

My shipping lead time is shown as 1-2 weeks, however, I typically get orders out within one week, if not sooner. If you need something by a specific date, please feel free to message me and I will let you know if I can accommodate it. I try my very best to get you your jewelry as soon as possible because I know how anxious you are to receive it! Although I cannot promise shipping before the 1-2 week lead time, I will always try my best!

I am not responsible for lost or stolen packages. I have no control over the USPS once your item ships. If any item is delayed in shipping, please contact the United States Postal Service for an update. I have no access to anymore information than what you see. I cannot be responsible for tracking your order. Sometimes items take longer than usual, I am just as upset about this as you are. I will always try to help you resolve any issues you may have with the Postal Service. Please make sure the address you provide is correct. If an item is shipped back to me because of an error on the customer's part, you must pay to have the item(s) re-shipped to you.

I stamp whatever is provided to me in the order notes. I do not spell check so please be sure you do that when you type in the information.

All sales are FINAL. No cancellations or refunds. If you place your order and want to cancel, please request a cancellation within 12 hours of your order being placed. If you order has not been started I will refund and cancel. Once an order has been placed, it can be started within any time of the expected lead time. Once started, I cannot cancel or refund. If you item(s) arrive damaged, you must contact me within 3 days to come up with a replacement plan. I am not responsible for the wear and tear on your jewelry pieces. Please handle your pieces with care. Remove them when bathing, swimming, working out, and sleeping. Items should be treated as costume jewelry.

Meet Jess!!

Lasting Impressions Hand Stamped Jewelry

Welcome to my shop! For years I've always wanted my own business. I just couldn't seem to figure out what my true passion was. I tried a lot though! I sold housewares, I had a fashion blog, I wanted a home staging business, I wanted to flip houses, I wanted my own clothing store, I wanted a traveling boutique, you name it, I wanted to do it or I tried to do it. Then one day, I saw a class listed at a local jewelry store. I decided to take the class and I learned how to stamp my own necklace in the matter of a few hours. I thought, hey I can do this. I can create something from this, I loved it, I thought it was easy, I was hooked. "Here we go again", my husband said! I said, "No this time will be different, I swear!".

Well isn't he just eating his words?!! However, I was wrong about a lot....this wasn't easy at all! Stamping is not easy, it has quite a learning curve, and is not a "cheap" start up to create. But, that didn't stop me. Hundreds of messed up blanks later, I thought I was finally good enough to show my work to the public. I started stamping in July of 2014 and opened my online shop in September 2014. Since then, I have expanded my abilities beyond measure, I've invested in myself and my business. I have upped my game 1000%. My supplies are sourced better, I use blanks all made and bought from other small business owners in the United States. My skills are polished (thought not perfect, as hand stamping is NOT engraving and is not meant to be perfect), I've learned many different ways to market myself, my business, my dream. I offer wholesale and retail lines.

My dream finally has come true, I finally found my passion, the spark I was looking for, for such a long time! I am proud to be a small business owner, but I am even more proud that I get to show my twin girls, who are 8 and my son who is 2, what it means to be a woman in business today, what it means to chase your dreams, achieve your goals, and continue to better yourself.

I've been married for almost 13 years to my soulmate, who also helps me part time with my dream. He is the most supportive man. We live in Connecticut and love to spend time together as a family and often frequent our local flea market which is the largest in New England. We go to every fall fair I can find, and try to give our children as many experiences as we can!

So there I am in a nutshell, thank you for reading and thank you for helping to support my dreams!!

xo,

Jess

Frequently asked questions
Custom and personalized orders

Yes! I love custom orders!! Please contact me via Etsy messaging and let me know what you're looking for. I always try my best to create something special and unique based on your ideas and my expertise. I look forward to working with you!

Care instructions

Please care for your jewelry. Just like you, jewelry loves a warm bed! Keep it comfy and maintain its life by putting it in a jewelry box when not in use. Do not wear your pieces in the water, while sweating, sleeping, or near any perfumes. Most of my pieces are stamped on aluminum which is non tarnish and hypo allergenic, but I still advise to please remove your pieces as stated above.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All jewelry is carded on a personalized Lasting Impressions jewelry card and wrapped in beautiful bird tissue paper, and enclosed in an organza gift bag. Each item comes ready for gift giving!

Wholesale availability

I do offer wholesale and bulk discounts. Please contact me for wholesale linesheets and/or bulk discount pricing. Thanks!!

What is Hand Stamping?

Hand stamping is the art form of using a hammer to directly imprint each letter or design into the metal. This is done using metal shanks. Each shank has a specific letter or design on it and one strike is given to make the impression into the jewelry piece. Because this is done entirely by hand it is extremely different than engraving which is done by a machine.

Each piece of jewelry I make is hand stamped by ME and only ME! You are getting a one of a kind custom piece of jewelry handmade by a small business owner. I create each design and stamp it out, then do all the finish work which includes oxidation (adding the color), buffing, filing, and putting each piece together.

Contact Me

Please contact me via Etsy messaging only. Do not email to my personal email just in case you end up in Spam. Etsy messaging is the best way to ask me a question about your order, upgrade your shipping, request a rush fee, or ask about a custom order.

Thanks!

What if I have to change my shipping address?

Please note, when you are in the checkout screen, you must enter the correct shipping address there before you checkout. If for some reason you do not, I cannot change your shipping address on my end. Please send me an etsy message and you can re-order your item and I will cancel and refund the purchase with the wrong address used.

Can items be stamped on the back?

No, I stamp fronts only. Hand stamping is the art form of hammering each letter directly into the metal, unlike engraving, in which a machine is used. Because of the strike of the hammer the backs of the pieces are always going to be a bit more "rough" looking than the fronts, so I do not stamp on the backs.

How do I personalize my order?

Once you add your item(s) to your cart, there is a text box in the checkout screen. It says "add optional note to seller". Here is where you type in any personalization names, dates, birthstones, etc you need me to know of. If you forget to do so, please just send me an etsy convo with your invoice linked and I will make the notes to your order.

Returns

Because of the personalization of my products and that each item is made to order, I do not accept returns. If your item has arrived incorrectly, I will of course re-make it for you at no charge. If you do need to ship something back to me, the buyer is responsible for all shipping costs regardless of whether free shipping was used or not. Please contact me with any further questions.
