Custom Sterling Charms
This is something I have been wanting to do for awhile, but just recently finally came up with a feasible way to do it. It involves turning your child's handwriting, footprints or silhouette into a stamp and then pressing it into silver clay that when fired becomes pure sterling silver. Pretty awesome right?
I have so many ideas not only for ways to wear them but also different styles of charms. For example, the top left corner has a charm with the largest silhouette. In this one the edges are uncut leaving them looking more like a monogram stamped in a wax seal setting. Plus I want to toy with offering copper and antique brass instead of sterling (I can't help it. I love to mix metals!). And on, and on, and on...
I still have a few kinks to work out, sizing, pricing, plus testing the aforementioned items. But seriously aren't you excited?
P.S. If you aren't excited yet, you will be after I tell you that you get to keep the stamp too! Yes that's right your own custom stamp of your child's handwriting... scrapbook lovers beware this could be pretty amazing!
