Featured Maker: Emily Siddall at Stamped by Em

Can we just start with how incredibly cute this bookmark is? Not only does she capture the thoughts of a true book lover but we love her added touch of embellishment. Plus her image is on point that's super important, especially for Etsy stores! Let's meet Emily Siddall, owner and designer of StampedByEm.


Hi, I’m Emily Siddall, owner and designer of StampedByEm. I was born and raised in rural Southern California. I have been making stamped metal jewelry for about a year. When I first saw someone with a stamped metal necklace, I knew I wanted to make stamped metal jewelry and accessories. I love trying to come up with things that I have never seen before and putting my own twists on something common to make it special.

I love spending time at my workbench working on my designs. Right now, my workspace is a section on the end of my Dad’s tool bench but I hope someday I can have a separate work space to decorate and make my own. Even when I have a nice work area I will have special memories of how I started out by sharing a tool bench with my dad. My favorite tools are the power hole punch and texturing hammers.


My favorite item that I make is penny jewelry, because I can make the years on the penny part of the story. I also love making leather and metal cuff bracelets out of old belts. I love how every piece I make is unique, even in an order for multiples of the same design, each one has its own personality. 


My favorite metal design stamp is the 10mm USA outline; I love how you can put the 1.5 heart in to the outline to represent locations. I also love the 7mm house and the 3mm heart. I like being a part of creating happy memories for people. I am glad I can use my God-given creativity to bless others.
