Ch-ch-changes (Important announcement, please read!)

Dear Friends,

It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to tell you I will no longer be doing sterling silver stamped jewelry.   Angel Face Designs is a small fish in the big pond of stamped jewelry designers, and quite frankly I just can't keep up.  Over the last year the price of sterling silver has gone through the roof, and shows no signs of stopping.  I don't place huge orders when ordering my silver; therefore I don't get a huge volume discount like some of the bigger, more well-known jewelry websites.

I have less than fifty pieces of sterling available for stamping.  If there were any Angel Face Designs creations you were hoping to get, now is the time, as once my silver is gone I will not be re-ordering any for a long, long time. 

I will still continue to do rings, earrings and some more fun, new creations (make sure to keep checking in!) And of course I will continue to blog here.

I know there are SO many options out there when it comes to stamped jewelry, but two shops that I want to recommend to you are Lisa Leonard Designs and Amy Cornwell.  Their jewelry is amazing, and high quality and the women behind each company are fabulous as well. 

Thank you for being amazing customers and friends over the years! If you have any questions at all, don't hesitate to email me - angelfacedesigns AT gmail DOT com

Oh man. Running a small business is so hard, but I think you are making a VERY smart decision. I am sure it was difficult, but I am excited to see what you have in store!

I am so sorry to hear this. You do beautiful work. Don't ever rule out yard sales. Some people have no idea that real silver is worth something. I wish you all the best.
