Featured Maker: Darby Hanevich at A Sacred Stitch

We immediately loved her cute succulent earrings and necklace. Then we saw her to-go paper coffee cup earrings and well, we just had to share. Let's meet Darby:

I have been making metal stamped jewelry for almost two years. I am a crafter at the core. I started out crocheting and wanted a pair of earrings that looked like balls of yarn. I experimented with resin for the first time and loved it!

From there I started to experiment with metal stamping. All I had was a package of circle blanks and one stamp. But my close friends all wanted a necklace. It grew from there, when they asked if I could stamp other shapes and designs for them!

I wanted to be able to make custom pieces for more than just my close friends, so I decided to open an Etsy shop.

My favorite piece I have made is a miscarriage memorial necklace. It was for a mother who had lost two babies. We worked together to make the perfect piece that she can wear and keep them close to her heart.

I love making jewelry and metal stamping because each piece is so unique. I love that my customers trust me to make a piece of jewelry that they will wear around that means something to them, whether a memory so tender or a funny statement only known to two best friends.

I have many favorite stamp designs that I love. My most recent favorite is the succulent collection. They are so trendy and cute. I want to put them on everything. My all-time favorite is the to-go paper coffee cup. I am a coffee enthusiast and wouldn’t make it a day without it. 

I have recently purchased the jewelry saw and have started to make cutout earrings. I wear the coffee ones almost every day. Every time I wear them I have people ask where I got them. I love being able to share my information with them so they can also wear the cutest earrings!! I am a little biased though!
