How those little ones leave their mark on us forever! This piece can be made with your child's *actual* likeness of handprint or footprint (the kind they take in ink at the hospital or you can do at home) or I can use a representative print. I will take the image, shrink it down, and etch it deeply into solid sterling silver or copper. Also wonderful with pawprints.
♥ A Wonderful & Special Gift Item! ♥
♥ Also a beautiful memorial for those who have lost a child.♥
Also great for pet owners and pet memorials.
Your choice of words and symbols on the opposite side (you can get an idea of fonts and what would fit from the photos) in your choice of metal - Sterling Silver, Copper and Sterling Silver, or Solid Copper.
Matte finish is the default - I can also do antiqued upon request.
HOW IT WORKS:
♥ To order your necklace, just buy this item, then leave your with your desired font & phrase in the comments. If you have any questions at all, just message me! Remember, it will not show detail like ink will, but it will be an actual representation of your child's print. (or pawprint, etc)

WHEN YOU ORDER:
1. SELECT THE FONT - if you want more than one, please message me or explain in the "comments to seller" upon checkout. Please note, the "U/L" next to the font name indicates Upper/Lower case. If there is "CAPS" in the name it's just capital letters. If there is "lower" in the name, it's just lower case.
2. SELECT THE METAL(S) - I make this in 3 versions: Solid Sterling Silver, Copper Print & Sterling Stamped, or Solid Copper. You may choose.
3. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU WANT STAMPED - (please message me or explain in the "comments to seller" upon checkout) Remember, this is subject to the space available. Fonts vary in size.
4. SEND ME your print(s), either via posting to a conversation on Etsy, or to bonnie [!at] birthdesigns.com
♥ This item is hand-stamped, and the letters will not be perfectly straight - it's part of the charm of this artisan item :) Additionally, stamping is a much deeper impression, and also blackened, to be much more visible than engraving. We have other hand-stamped items available in our store, if you would like to see more examples.
♥ All orders are packaged suitably for gift giving.
♥ Most retail items ship within about 1-2 weeks from order date. Need it sooner? Just ask. Often I can accommodate! Every single piece is sawn, hammered, pierced, filed, oxidized, buffed, and finished by hand - right here. We take great pride in our work, and even though our processes might be a bit slower, they are time-honored with classic proven quality. If you want the best hand-hewn look, you have come to the right place.
