FAQs

PRODUCTION TIME:

Please note, all items are HANDMADE by me out of my home studio in Connecticut. Because you are getting a handmade, one of a kind piece, it takes time to produce each item.  Typically my production time prior to shipping is 1-2 weeks, but I strive to get orders out before that time span. If you do need something sooner, I do offer rush orders, so feel free to send me a message. 

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

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.

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 (unless otherwise mentioned in the listing itself).
