After making jewelry for over 6 years, I finally got my maker’s mark made (tee hee, say that three times fast). Back when I had my logo designed, I also asked them to design a maker’s mark, but for whatever reason, I never actually got the stamp made.
Most of my jewelry making friends have stamps so I decided it was time to get mine made. I contacted Rio Grande, sent them my artwork, and patiently waited about 4 weeks while my custom stamp was made.
Yesterday, I used it for the first time:
Most of all, I’m glad to have a unique stamp that shows the world that my work is my work. There is kind of a sense of pride in that.
Meanwhile, after some success at selling on Etsy, I am making jewelry like a mad woman. Stay tuned for more new pieces this week, including a little custom work.
