Get a special name or date stamped onto a name bar necklace! Choose from 14k Gold Fill in Rose or Yellow Gold, or solid sterling silver. All our pieces are cut and polished by hand out of sheets of ethically sourced precious metals by Jessica.
If you would like a heart or dot between the names, please let me know! Stamping is different than engraving in that the letters and symbols are all a pre-determined size, representing single hardened steel stamps I use to indent the metal with each letter one at a time.
Please note that this is a stamped piece and each letter is placed one at a time. For this reason, the placement of letters may vary and has a more handmade feel. If you are wanting something more exact, we suggest a hand lettered bar!
ALIGNMENT:Alignment of customization is Left, Right or Centre. The vantage point will be from looking at the necklace when it is not worn, as if looking at a photo of it.
LENGTH: Measurement of length is when the necklace is open and measured from end to end. Standard length is 18 inches. Length will vary from person to person. Please see the size guide for length suggestions!
All our pieces are lovingly gift boxed in a foiled Mint box, ready for gift giving!
BAR:If you want a double sided bar, let me know what you want for each side. You will get 2 options for each side.
DISCS: Discs require me to take a little more creative freedom, especially if there are more than 2 words on a disc! If you need 3 or more names on a disc, I may need to change up the order of names indicated. Depending on your name and how many up/down swings there are in letters such as g, t, y, b, etc., I will have to move the names around and curve the baseline so I can maximize the amount of space that I can use! Please be specific with your request on how open you are to allowing me to take creative freedom.
For discs with lots of names, you need to allow me creative freedom: exaggerated, loops, larger/smaller letters, dancing baseline to make words and names fit into each other, some names starting with uppers/lowers as I need to get them to fit nicely into one another, fitting like puzzle pieces!
If you want the names to appear in a certain order, the name will not fit like puzzle pieces.
HEART: If you want a heart pendant, please let me know how you will want to hang (on the side, straight across, etc.) If you’re not sure, you can just leave it up to me and I'll design it for you!
WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT MINT & BIRCH PIECES?
T H E M A G I C I S I N T H E P R O C E S S .
Each Mint & Birch piece starts out as sheets of precious metal. Each bar, disc, oval, heart is cut and polished by hand in my studio. Each piece is cut lovingly by me one order at a time.
Yes! You can wear these pieces every day without worry of flaking, peeling or tarnish!
I personally file, drill and polish each one with my own hands. I only use ethically sourced gold fill and solid sterling silver sheets sourced from North American mills. Using hand tools allows me to have a greater degree of control and precision over the piece to ensure that edges are beautifully smooth and that no damage occurs when finishing the piece into shiny necklaces! I do not use a tumbler, in which several pieces are put into a rotating canister with abrasives or steel pins to quickly smooth batches of pieces, causing micro scratches and unnecessary wear. Instead, I believe in good old-fashioned hard work done with elbow grease! Your bar necklace will not flake and you can wear it daily! The combination of high quality materials and my unique process of finishing the bars results in pieces that will last for years to come. I strive to offer my best, offering customizations not found elsewhere, such as the original hand lettered pieces.
