One of the things I love most about hand-stamped jewelry is that it is both unique and tangible. A way to wear a physical reminder of something both meaningful and special to you.

Whether it's a set of initials to hold your children close, or friendship cuffs to celebrate your squad! A significant word of encouragement for whatever season you may be in, a meaningful date, or even a set of coordinates. Whatever the reason, Changed Impressions would love to be a place you can always find the perfect piece to share and celebrate your story...

People often ask me where did the name come from---

 

Well you see, when the metal stamp strikes the blank, it changes the state of it and leaves a mark or an impression. In a way, I can also say that's what happened when I re-encountered Christ. It changed my life. Not in a way that makes me a robot, or even self-righteous (haha hopefully not), but more so in a way that radically shifted my identity and even lifestyle. And it was the best choice I ever made.  Changed Impressions ;).

 

More about me: 

I love the idea of personalized pieces. It's something special and encouraging to me to hand-stamp words of encouragement for others. lol...I also am a fan of finding beautiful things within my budget. So I hope that Changed Impressions can be a mixture of both affordable and beautiful things! I have a vision to also give back to the local community and to partner with organizations that mean something. I believe I am this way because of the people that have surrounded me and my faith. I hope that you can find something unique and special in our shop and that it will bring you joy for years to come!

I live in Raleigh, NC and I have an incredible group of friends and a boyfriend that keeps me rooted in the more important things of life. I also love spending time with my family and working with my hands. When I'm not designing jewelry, I work for a local non-profit and really try to plug into my community through local outreach opportunities.

 

I honestly never thought I would enjoy this as much as I do, but here I am. Thankful for your continued support because I know without you guys, I would not be able to do this!
