Featured Crafter - Metalpressions.com

Metalpressions.com is the dream business and outlet for Elisha Argentinis' creativity. For as long as Elisha can remember she has been dabbling in all things crafty. The seed for a crafty entrepreneur was planted in her college days with custom designed oil lamps that she sold to local shops. As time went on her horizons expanded into other types of crafts like knitting, stamping and scrapbooking. Around 7 years ago she was introduced into the world of hand stamped and handcrafted keepsake and photo jewelry by a close friend. Her skill and expertise developed quickly as did her passion for making beautiful jewelry. The keen eye she had developed for layout and design with other hobbies translated well into jewelry fabrication and helped to make the learning curve short.

At the time her full time career limited her to practicing her craft as a part time affair or, as her husband likes to describe it, an accelerated hobby. Like many other hand made jewelry designers around the country, the crossover from part time hobby to full time work came when Elisha left her career to raise her children. In her spare moments she somehow found the time to grow her business.

After a little of prodding, she convinced her husband, Andreas, to help with the business by developing a website for her jewelry designs. With a background in internet business systems analysis, web marketing, and a stint in technical manufacturing, he was quick to identify opportunities to help her make and market great products. Together they have created a vision to bring you outstanding crafted hand stamped jewelry, an innovative shopping experience, and exceptional world class customer service. The end goal is to provide jewelry products at the quality, price, and convenience of the big internet jewelry sites but with the hometown feel of your local mom & pop shop.

One of the other unique aspects about Metalpressions.com is their commitment to social responsibility with their business and personal lives. Social responsibility goes beyond recycling and can be involvement in any aspect of life that makes a contribution back to the greater good of society. Although there hasn't been a lot of publicity about their contributions, they plan to promote and communicate to their existing and potential customers their socially responsible activities. These activities already include reducing their waste output (That's in addition to already recycling and using recycled materials), volunteering, fundraising, giving blood regularly, and much more.

Metalpressions.com is constantly working hard to source the best silver, gold, and copper necklaces, bracelets, key chains, earrings, charms, pendants, and gems. At the same time we are always working to improve our process to deliver you a superior product than the competition. We have spent countless hours refining our process of stamping, texturizing, blackening letters, and polishing. There are lots of options for customized & personalized jewelry on the internet and we are confident that our hand stamped jewelry is the best.
