National letter writing month

When was the last time you received a hand written letter from an old friend? A family member? A loved one? The kind that were so carefully crafted that lets you feel their scent through the paper and gets you lost in the perfect imperfections of their handwriting and scribbles

April is The National Letter Writing Month, so we wanted to pay homage to the long lost art of letter writing

Being a hoarder of fine things, I looked through the boxes of stuff that I have and found lots of postage stamps and got so fascinated with the endless possibilities of things I can do with them. I I was overwhelmed - I felt the need to create something as a token of appreciation to that art, and to bring more people back to it

So through Anteiqa, a little shop that creates vintage jewelry that I cofounded along with my cousin, we started looking for ways to use those stamps in our creations. We decided to make rings, I mean what is more symbolic than a ring! But after lots of failed attempts and multiple trials with paper stamps, we started looking for vintage stamps to send out the same message but perhaps with a more durable material. Luckily, we were able to locate four exquisite pieces that roughly date around the 1980s from a gentlemen who also collects stuff

With combined magical forces, we were able to create something ever so wonderful! ♥

And the idea of just wandering off to a cafe with a notebook and writing and seeing where that takes me for a while is just bliss.
