About

It's amazing what a hammer, and a whole lotta love can make!

Hi, I'm Nikki, the boss lady, and overly bubbly personality heading a mini crafting empire

I'll start with some history....
Once upon a time there was a girl, this girl LOVED people, all things business related, and was crafty as heck. My story started when I wanted to find a really great unique long distance gift for my best friend, living on the other side of the country. I am what my husband calls an expert level shopper, and yet I couldn't find a single thing that expressed what I felt. How could I buy such a generic gift for someone so special? Some of the best gifts tell a story straight from your heart. Money was tight, but with a hammer and a whole lotta love, I made something really cool! This is where my entrepreneur spirit kicked in. I visited every craft store within a 20 mile radius, multiple times a week (yes you read that right).. each time entering the craft stores with a single coupon, buying a single item. After months of doing this (and feeling like a complete idiot running into the same people on the registers) I finally had a pretty formidable stockpile of tools and supplies to make stuff! Life was pretty tough at first, I worked a full time job, managed a household, and stayed up late every night working on growing a business. In 2012, my dreams came true and I was able to quit my day job to pursue my love of creating full time.

Make what you love, love what you make....
It's really amazing to make a living doing something you enjoy so much. I'm forever grateful to my loyal customers, and I hope that this shows in the quality of our products, service, and the level of customer service you receive. We don't just make jewelry and accessories, we make little sentiments that express how you feel. It's amazing how much emotion can be captured in such a small package. We truly hope you cherish your special hand crafted items.

Don't forget....
I'm sharing my visions with you on Etsy, but don't think that's all we can do. Custom work is our specialty, if you have an idea, know we probably have the materials and tools to make it a reality. We love knowing we've made someone's idea come to life.

I consider selling my wares putting little unique pieces of me out there for others to enjoy. I always wanted my life to make some sound, and it seems.. that sound.. is of a hammer hitting metal.

--Nikki :)

Frequently asked questions

Where do I leave custom order information?

When you add your item/items to the cart, before you hit the "Proceed to checkout" button you will see a text area that says "Add a note to thelightandthedark1 (Optional)". That's where we'd like you to add custom text, initials, names, birthstones, number of miles, locations for state sets, and any other custom information we'll need to make your order more personalized for you.

Care instructions

To ensure your jewelry keeps looking its finest, please remove before showering, swimming, or other prolonged exposure to water.

Please be careful not to get hand sanitizer, or other products that include alcohol on your stamped jewelry, as it will remove the oxidation.

Gold, Silver, Copper, Bronze, Brass and Nickel tarnish over time due to skin oils and other environmental factors. Aluminum and Stainless steel do not.

Wipe your jewelry with a soft cloth after wearing to remove dirt and oils.

Never use jewelry cleaning dips or liquids as these can remove the oxidization (blackening) in the characters in your jewelry.
