Another Holiday Gift Suggestion for Stamp Collectors

Roundup reader Scott Collins writes to say his wife, Amber Davis Collins, makes beautiful stamp pendants, rings, ear rings and other items out of used postage stamps. 

According to Scott, "She has found that both stamp collectors and non-collectors appreciate these and give these as gifts.  Prices are kept very affordable (between $14-15 each and shipping is just a flat $2.50. Orders over $50 have free shipping) and the jewelry is made out of both US and international stamps. Her handmade product line consists of pendant necklaces, earrings, and hairpins."

He goes on to say, "She also makes custom orders for people that want to commemorate special stamps.  A frequent request is taking stamps from old love letters and making them into necklaces.  Right now she is volunteering at an AIDS orphan school in Uganda and won’t be back until the 12th of December so she won’t have time to make custom orders for this holiday season, but it’s something she routinely does for those that are interested."
