Love mine! It is really cute!
How I entered the wonderful world of Etsy
HOW THIS ALL STARTED: After years of blowing my birthday money on what I thought were essential clothing items (ha), several years ago, I took that money instead to the craft store in search of a new hobby. Two hours later, I emerged from the store with a book about jewelry making, and more beads than I knew what to do with. I spent months practicing and creating new pieces of jewelry, until one day I realized I had WAY more necklaces in proportion to the number of necks I owned. A friend suggested I have an open house and sell some of my things, thus my jewelry business was born. Years later, I am still enjoying expressing my creativity through this craft and have also added the personalized hand stamped technique into my collection. In September of 2011 I decided to expand my business and opened my Etsy shop, and it's been a true blessing!
INSPIRATION: I am inspired by the fact that each one of us impacts one another in small, and sometimes huge ways. Our lives truly “imprint” upon each other, and so I thought it fitting to name by business ”Love Branded” as each of our hearts are “branded” with all the experiences, memories, and relationships we’ve had with others. It’s why we love to wear our kids names, or birthdays, or the anniversary of when we married the love of our lives around our necks. It’s why we love to find a word we think defines or inspires us and wear it as motivation.
We are who we are largely due to who we’ve encountered in our lives and what we’ve choses to embrace. I am so grateful for everyone and every experience that God has put in my path, and I love that I get to help make meaningful mementos of the inspirations and loved ones in your life through my jewelry.

HAND STAMPED JEWELRY
~Please allow 2-3 weeks for the hand-stamped pieces to be created for you. As the name implies, these are created by hand (mine) and not by a machine. That being said, please note that no two pieces will be exactly the same. Letters, numbers and designs may not be perfectly straight, spacing and darkening may vary. This adds to the charm and hand-made look of this design method and what makes your piece truly one of a kind.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns through Etsy Conversations. This allows me to keep track of all correspondance regarding purchases/orders.
~Custom Orders are welcome so please feel free to contact me if you would like to change the wording or stamping of any item. Quantities of Hand Stamped items are listed as one, but multiples can be made, so let me know if you need more of a certain item.
