Hand Stamped Jewelry Making

Hand Stamped Jewelry Making

I have been doing hand stamping for over a year now. It all started with opening the new Etsy store. I did check few youtube videos before I started. I didn't follow all the rules. As usual... I' m not someone who likes following recipes word by word and measurement by measurement. But there are some rules are worth following... Youtube tutorial ( not by me). 

I ordered metal letters for stamping. And aluminium discs. I did also order stainless steel discs, however, it was way harder to stamp, material is really strong... Not as soft. And I kinda gave up on that material... next thing was to try to get the letters more less straight and also deep enough. Its all about the angle of the hammer and the way you hold each stamping letter. After a month of practicing my lettering started to be more straight and nice. I have made first 20- 50 hand stamped jewelry pieces. Next thing was - working on things like SEO and marketing to get the sales going. 

Many of my friends and some people who replied to the add about hand stamping job have tried it. Not everyone gets it. It is not as easy as it seems. But then again, I have met people who succeeded in the first try. I mean, there are still mistakes here and there. But after first 5-10 discs they are able to make all the letters more less straight. The charm in hand stamped jewelry is also quirkyness of it. Engraving not being perfect gives a little charm and cuteness to the piece. It makes it more handmade looking and one of the kind. Jewellery with that kind of look can be the most charming of all.

About the hand stamped jewelry shop

About the hand stamped jewelry shop

It all started with Etsy. First I opened shop that had crocheted hats in it. Gradually I moved from pillow making to jewellery making. And next step was learning to hand stamp cute quotes on the metal. I focused on keychains particularly and the idea of the keychains being gifts. Etsy shop had quite a fast success. People loved the quotes. Descriptions, SEO and Photos was more less alright and I started having sales after 1 month. After a year I was able to fully support myself with my Etsy shop. Quotes engraved on keyrings was a perfect gift for Valentines day , for Boyfriend or Girlfriend. Despite of that, I never stopped doing what I always was doing - guitar playing and teaching. And I opened this shop! I wanted to be more independent from Etsy. All jewelry is hand made in my shop. And yes, most of it currently is handmade by myself. Quirkiness of these engravings is special. Since each letter is stamped by hand, each customer receives fully one of the kind product. Thank you for stopping by!
