Hand Stamped Monogrammed Tie Clips and Initial Bracelets

It’s wedding season! I haven’t posted in awhile because I haven’t had many new items to share- most of my efforts have gone toward completing orders from brides and grooms with weddings on the horizon for their bridesmaids and groomsmen. Since the hand stamped initial bracelets and men’s monogrammed tie bars have been so popular with the brides and grooms, I thought that I would start selling them in groups instead of only individually, to give a bit of a discount on bulk orders. Hand stamped items like the sterling silver initial bracelets and the monogrammed tie clips below make great gifts for a group of people- especially for those people to whom you want to say thanks for supporting you on your way to and on your special day- whether that special day be your wedding, your graduation, or some other accomplishment for which you want to thank people for their support.  Elegant yet versatile, both the tie clips and the bracelets will accessorize any outfit, whether it be formal or daily wear, and are a great personalized memento of whatever occasion you choose.

The Tie Clips feature the slightly larger Arial font for the initial of the surname, which in the traditional monogram style is the center letter, with a slightly smaller 2mm Typewriter Font for the initial of the first and middle names. I bend and cut the tie clips myself, so the size and length is totally up to the customer! These were made to fit the skinny ties of 6 groomsmen and a groom- I’ve requested pictures from the wedding, so hopefully I’ll be able to post them soon!

I’ve also started offering FREE gift packaging with each order- customers can choose what ribbon color they’d like or can choose twine. This one below is what one of the grooms chose for his gift packaging.

The hand stamped sterling silver initial bracelets are done with a 6 mm font called Seymour, which is a type of monogram font. I can’t wait to see (and post) the pictures from this wedding as well!

Monogrammed Tie Bars

Since school has started to pick up as finals near, I haven’t got a chance to post in awhile. Between scrambling to get everything together for finals, having nightmares about the bar exam (which I don’t even take for another year…I guess while I may procrastinate, my subconscious and the nightmares it produces do not), and filling orders, my internet and social media presence for lakeshore lavaliere has been lacking. I also realized that the  lakeshore lavaliere men’s section is a little barren, and since the monogrammed tie clips with the spring have been so popular, I’ve decided to offer another style of tie clip, or rather, a tie bar. I have to give credit where credit is due, however, because the first (the ones with a spring will heretofore be referred to as tie clips, and the ones without springs will be tie bars… maybe that’s what it is supposed to be, but I’ve seen both referred to by both names online and it’s confusing…so…there.)  tie bar came to me as a custom order from my friend and [lakeshore lavaliere spokesmodel 😉 ]  Erik Kabe. It looked so sharp (yep, I’m 90) on him, that I  decided that I should continue to offer the monogrammed tie bar as an option!

Monogrammed Tie Bar

Erik’s is in the traditional monogram style (which I love here), and I used Arial font for his first and middle initials (E & A), and the larger Seymour font for the K. There are also other font and style options by request!

Monogrammed Sterling Silver Cuff Links

These cuff links were created as a gift, but, after I finished and photographed them, they got such a great response from everyone who saw them, so I decided to make them available for purchase in my  lakeshore lavaliere online shop (etsy.com/shop/lakeshorelavaliere) and showcase them here! I made the cuff links from sterling silver discs that I hand stamped with the monogram using a combination of Seymour (a monogram font, and the largest letter in the monogram) and Typewriter/Newsprint fonts (the two smaller outer letters). After I stamped the blanks, I oxidized the letter impressions to darken their appearance and make them stand out from the rest of the disc. Then, I put the discs in my NEW machine jewelry polishing tumbler (I am really excited about it). It makes them so much shinier and smoother than anyone ever could by hand. After they were polished, the monogrammed discs were ready to be attached to the sterling silver cuff link base, which I did by soldering them on. I did this because I don’t like using a glue adhesive on sterling silver, I like using a butane blow torch, and because since cuff links are basically fasteners, they take a bit of a beating and I wanted them to be pretty much welded on so they would last FOREVER. Here are a few pictures of the finished product:

Monogrammed Steel Tie Clips

Personalized accessories are a great gift to give or receive, so I am really excited to finally be able to offer lakeshore lavaliere monogrammed tie clips! These custom ordered tie clips have a spring so that they can clamp onto the ties without sliding around. They also show the different monogram options; there are two styles that are available- the first tie clip shows the  traditional order for monograms, (first initial, larger last initial, middle initial), and the second two show the popular first, middle, last order with all the letters in the same size. In the last tie clip pictured, the customer wanted a Republican elephant symbol. So, after finding the Republican elephant charm online, I soldered it onto the tie clip to finish it off!
