I do not accept outside items for engraving at this time.

Please specify all changes, discussions, or any modifications you need for your order in the order notes when you place your order. It is hard to keep track of changes made via etsy message or email, so please put these in the order notes even if we have previously discussed them.

Engraving vs. Etching, what is the difference: Engravers use small steel chisels called gravers to cut away the surface of the metal leaving crisp, deep lines. Etching uses an acid bath and electric current to gradually eat away at the surface of metal (to me this produces less crisp and deep lines than traditional hand engraving.)

Beautiful! My only wish would be for the cuff links to be a little larger and stronger. But for a special occasion to honor someone, as we did, they were perfect!

About

Classic designs and lifetime memories

I have always had a love and passion for creating things. I began my jewelry education in 2008 learning about wax carving and casting. I have since developed and grown from there through multiple classes all around the globe. I studied at a full time bench jewelry program, and eventually decided to focus on engraving.

My handwriting jewelry evolved from a gift idea for a friend who had moved to Malaysia. All of our friends wanted her to know she was missed and we thought about her often, and what better way than with handwriting. My collection of handwriting engraving pieces has just grown from there!

Every item is designed, created, and shipped by Me alone; so you can be assured what you are buying is completely unique and personal from start to finish :-)

I specialize in hand engraving (which is the method of cutting away the top surface of metal with a steel chisel called a graver.)

Hand engraving is very different than stamped jewelry. It requires highly specialized skills and tools that make each piece truly unique as they are entirely cut by hand.

At this time, I do not accept outside items for engraving. There are many variables to metal and the engraving process itself, and so I have decided to only engrave items I am able to supply. Thank you for understanding.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

At checkout, please include write the message being engraved in the notes to seller box. Then send your writing sample photo or scan via Etsy message or email to Megan.goldkamp@gmail.com. There is no place to upload an image at checkout.

Gift wrapping and packaging

All items will come in either a black box or black satin bag with my company logo embossed in silver on the front. Both make for a very special gift presentation.

Unsure about how your writing sample will translate on a particular item?

I now offer a template preview for $5 that can be applied to your future order. You will be able to see your writing sample applied to one item of your choice prior to committing to your full item order.

I will send you a coupon code that you can use to deduct the $5 charge off of your future order.

How many letters will fit on an item?

Each item has a suggested letter count based on the overall size of the piece and how much text it can accommodate while still being easy to read. This is a suggestion, and usually 1-3 more letters can fit depending on how the text is composed overall.

If you have any particular questions about what text will fit, please send me a message with a photo of your text. I can then give you a much better idea of if your message will work well on that item.

I am very prompt at replying to messages, so be assured I will get back to you as soon as possible.

When is the Christmas order deadline?

Currently I am setting the Christmas cut off at Saturday December 10th. This date may change based on order volumes.
