So, What Exactly Is Hand Stamping?
Hand stamping is a fabulous way of making an imprint onto metal. It works completely by hand where metal stamps are held & boshed with a hammer, to leave an imprint. Because hand stamping uses no machinery at all, there may be little variations in depth to the imprints. A perfectly straight line is something that hand stampers worldwide scratch their heads in wonder at. The beauty of hand stamping is the imperfect perfectness of it & the fact that you really can have whatever your heart desires stamped onto a piece that you can treasure forever.

- I use individual metal stamps to create the designs/wording on my pieces. This is NOT the same (or anything remotely like) as engraving. Engraving/etching removes the metal, stamping simply displaces it.
- The pieces will often have an imprint on the reverse side which is unavoidable. Each letter/number/design is placed by hand, not machine, & is hammered. Because of this the text may not be perfectly straight or of the same depth. The surface won't feel smooth. This is all part of the charm of a hand stamped piece.
