Vintage postage stamp jewellery makes unique birthday, anniversary, and retirement gifts chosen by year of issue, motif, and nationality.
To show you just how easy it is to hit a home run with a meaningful gift from the heart, I'm going to share this example, a necklace I originally made for my niece's 30th birthday last year.
My beautiful niece was turning 30, so a stamp from her birth year of 1986 would be an obvious choice to celebrate her birthday.
As a wildflower enthusiast, who takes every opportunity she can to get in the car, take her camera, and trek for wildflowers and take their photographs, I knew the Australian wildflower release from 1986 would be a really exciting gift for Diana.
But the fact that this incredibly beautiful set of stamps also featured a rare, and very dramatic orchid native to our home state of Western Australia, The Queen of Sheba, an orchid I knew she was very lucky to have seen in person and taken fabulous images of, made me feel like it was all just so very perfect - an irresistible once in a lifetime gift that I couldn't wait to give!
Sharing the origin of the stamp, so that my niece knew about the heritage or the stamp and its connection to her was so easy - and when you buy postage stamp jewellery from my store you also get the information about the stamp written onto the swing tag. Its a great conversation starter to help you share just how much thought you put into a special gift from the heart.
Now for some great news, I happen to have some extra stamps from the series, and the striking collection of orchids and wildflowers will be back in store in a limited, small run (only 4 of each design)
