I’m kind of drooling over the Rust Flower and Pearl Necklace… come on… don’t I NEED this for Valentine’s Day? :) Enjoy reading Amy’s story and checking out her wonderful brand!

In HER words ::

Hi! My name is Amy and I’m in my early 30’s, married and have two kids (a girl and a boy). I originally started making jewelry in High School (1996ish) to raise money for a spring break trip. I started my business making beaded jewelry then expanded into personalized, hand stamped jewelry. That is when my business really took off. 2010 has been my best year yet!
I love making personalized items. Hearing the stories behind each one – whether it be a name, special date or quote – is so inspiring to me. I’ve had customers who have made memorial pieces for a parent who passed away and the fact that they share their story blesses me deeply. Customer service is so important to me. My business has grown mainly through referrals and little other advertisement. I have heard from so many people that they received an Amy Cornwell item and now they want to share that with someone else. I love hearing back from a customer who has one of my designs and what they think about it. It brings me joy to bring joy to others through my creations.
About the process: Each item is made with care in my home studio and if I don’t like the way something looks, I’ll restamp it. Every letter, number and shape is stamped individually and then the piece is polished for an hour to give it a beautiful shine. Each piece is placed in a small gift bag so that it is ready for giving. As of now, I am the only designer working on each and every item, but I hope to have at least one assistant later in 2011 to help me with shipping and packaging. The neat thing about my design process is that some of my customers are the designers! If they see something they like but want to change it up or make the charm larger, sometimes it ends up being something I feature in the shop.
Thank you for reading, and I hope to have the opportunity to make something special for you or your loved ones in the near future!
