Have you ever seen a piece of hand-stamped jewelry? It is so unique and special! When I was contacted by Erin, designer/owner of Love Letters Jewelry, I could not have been more excited to select a piece of my own. Lucky for you all, Erin was generous enough to offer me a bracelet and a gift certificate for one of you to choose your own, too!
If you’ve been around here for long, or even not-so-long, you know that my son Collin is the light of my life. I couldn’t wait to get his name stamped on a piece of jewelry to wear with me! I chose a bracelet with his name on a circle and a charm with his birthstone. I knew I’d love it but when it got here – well lets say I was fully impressed. I received the package in the mail and opened it up to find a pretty little pouch with Erin’s eye-catching business card inside along with my carefully boxed bracelet. When I pulled the jewelry itself out of the box it was just beautiful!
Here is a little bit about Erin and her company, Love Letters Jewelry:
Love Letters Jewelry is high-quality, personalized, hand stamped jewelry made with women in mind. Wear your own initial or name and a favorite charm, wear your child’s initial or name and birthstone, your grandchildren, or any loved one in your life. Have a favorite verse or a meaningful saying? Have it stamped and wear with a charm. Love Letters makes for a perfect gift too! Weddings, mom-to-be, graduations, baptism’s and dedications, moving, promotions, birthdays, Christmas or any holiday! I also make name plates for your pets, bookmarks, baby bracelets, keychains, and gifts for your guy.
I strive to create meaningful and unique keepsakes for you to cherish. I use quality and durable sterling silver chains, charms and findings, as well as silver and copper pieces. Each letter is individually hand stamped, no 2 pieces will come out the same–making every piece it’s own unique creation! Also, the letters will not be perfectly straight- this adds to the charm of a hand stamped, handcrafted piece! All of my stamped pendants are custom which allows you to create something special just for you! To clean your piece I recommend using a polishing cloth and a mild sterling silver cleaner. Be careful not to get the letters wet as they will fade.
My name is Erin and I started my Love Letters business officially in April 2010. I also work full time at a 8-5 job and have been there for over 10 years. My husband was laid off in December 2009 (and is still laid off) so I thought I’d turn my hobby into a business for extra income. So far it has been a great success and I love what I do! I was born and raised in Fort Wayne, IN where I also currently live with my husband, Chris and our 2 year old son, Jonathan. I also enjoy gardening, baking, swimming, and traveling.
