Alright, Mama’s, this one is just for you!
Hand stamped silver is just what it sounds like: cutting sheets of silver into the shape you want and then stamping them with letters or symbols. Each piece is one-of-a-kind because it is made by hand, not a machine. I can’t remember where I first heard about hand stamped silver, but once I saw it, I was in love. Celebrities, bloggers, mama’s on the street – it felt like once I knew about it, it was everywhere I looked. I have been looking online for months, trying to find the perfect necklace, decide the perfect way to personalize it, and everytime I think I’ve decided, I realize the site I’m looking at is American and the shipping charges are almost as much as the piece I want.
Then I stumbled upon Alli’s Originals! Alli is a stay at home mompreneur who has been designing and creating jewellery for years. She lives in Toronto and has a website so full of gorgeous creations and ideas, it made me feel like a kid in a candy store the first time I found it. Have a look here: Alli’s Originals Jewellery – About Alli to see Alli in action making her amazing pieces.
Alli sent me one of her newest designs: Love Hearts. It is classic and beautiful: three little hearts, one for each of my children with their names stamped on them. It came on a silver chain. I love the simplicity of it, the way it represents all three of my kids without screaming I’M A MOM! and the way it goes with absolutely everything I wear.
Apparently, I am not the only stamped silver fan either, because once I started wearing it, it attracted a lot of attention from other women who had been looking for similar necklaces or from women who already had their own similar jewellery!
