Picking out the perfect Christmas gift can be tricky but when you give a gift full of love, thought and personal touches – it’s always going to be well received! Our Engraved Handwriting Collection is the perfect way to do just that.

And what better way to showcase the collection than to walk you through the process… with a little help from our lovely friend Abbie of @marleyandhismumma insta fame!

Abbie approached us after ordering our Engraved Initial Disc Necklace as a gift for her mother-in-law, she was thrilled with the response and impressed with the personal touch she was able to add to her engraved jewellery.

We asked Abbie to put together a wishlist of her own and at the top was our Sterling Silver Handwriting Heart Necklace.

Let’s get to know the lovely lady behind the Insta profile…

“Hi! My name is Abbie, I am 26 and a Mummy to my little curly haired wildling, Marley Reef. I began Instagram blogging when Marley was just three months old, sharing a TRUTHFUL blog of my life as a first time mum. I am a dance teacher by trade, a charity ambassador and love all things fashion and jewellery too! Give me a follow @marleyandhismumma too see more about us, our life and my stories full of day to day fun, mum life and moans!”

So Abbie, how did you decide what to engrave on your necklace?

“I already own an item of jewellery that I wear every day that is special to me in honour of Marley and I wanted something meaningful for my partner too. I gave Carl free reign of what to write and to be honest I’m lucky he chose something quite so romantic as it could have gone any way!”

How did you get on creating your handwriting sample Abbie?

“Ordering the necklace itself was SO simple! Carl, wrote his message on a piece of plain white paper and I took a photo of it. It was then sent across to the team at The Little Keepsake Company and within a day the writing had been turned into my unique necklace.

The ordering process was seamless, quick and the team themselves can’t do enough for you if you have any questions. I was in shock at the quality of my necklace when it arrived and Carl who couldn’t care less about jewellery normally, keeps saying how nice it looks, so I think he feels proud of him handwritten creation too! I’ve not taken it off from the moment it arrived and I don’t intend to any time soon.”

After Abbie sent us through her handwriting photos, our lovely studio team took the images into Photoshop where we clean up the file and create a black and white image which our engravers can then transform into the finished piece.

Our studio team work their magic to make sure Abbie’s engraving was best positioned on the sterling silver heart charm and keep a careful eye on the engraver as it is in progress. The newly engraved heart charm is then attached to a sterling silver belcher chain, given a last polish and tucked into one of our gorgeous gift boxes.

Creating a truly personal gift that’s full of heart really is simple! Just place your order, send us your photos and we’ll do the rest!
