As a proud mom, I love wearing jewelry that celebrates the little person who changed my life forever. I own a handful of beautiful necklaces; one featuring her photo, another birthdate and birthstone and one with her name engraved. Some combine a few of those elements. There are so many different types of hand stamped jewelry available, but just recently I discovered one of the most unique versions.
Take one look at the Joseph Allen Designs boutique and you’ll see just what I mean. There are your standard designs if a simple classic pendant is your style, or you can choose something extraordinary like this boy charm piece –
Or this “Doorway to my Heart” design –
I was particularly taken with the Mokume jewelry; this was something I hadn’t ever seen before and as an artist I was intrigued by this different material. Mokume is a unique mixture of Argentium Sterling Silver and copper that is cut from sheets and can be hand-stamped.
While I tend to choose rounded shapes, I figured I’d try something different from the other necklaces I own and I went with the Mokume Open Square on a 16” curb chain. I had it engraved with my daughter’s initials and birth date. The mokume material is gorgeous and I just love the design. I haven’t stopped wearing it since it arrived!
