There have been a lot of new likers to my page over the last few weeks, so I thought I would write a little post about me, and what I do and pin it to the top of the page.
As you can probably tell by my business name, I'm Ruth. I'm a mum to three children and I run my own business in the North East of Scotland. I began Hand Stamping in March 2015, and since then it's grown really well, I've met lots of lovely customers and suppliers, my font stash has grown and I've learned lots.
I stamp a variety of different keyrings, necklaces and bracelets. I mostly use Aluminium, but I can source other metals, just ask if you have anything particular in mind. Aluminium is a very light metal, but it's hypoallergenic and doesn't tarnish, so it's an excellent more affordable substitute for silver. Each and every letter and design stamp is lined up by hand, and stamped using a hammer. This means that pieces can truly be unique, as I can stamp pretty much any text (providing it will fit on the blank you choose!). It is worth noting that this isn't a machine engraved process, and due to the nature of hand stamping it is impossible for everything to be perfectly spaced and in line, however I think this adds to the charm! When the metal is stamped the excess metal is displaced, this results in some marks on the back of the blank (as the metal that's been stamped has to go somewhere). Through trying various techniques I have managed to keep the metal displacement to a minimum, but it isn't possible to eradicate the marks completely.
