If you're looking for a customised keepsake that can last for a very long time, a hand carved stone seal would be ideal. This listing is for a customised round or oval stone seal that carries up to 2 Chinese characters. It can be done in two ways - Yin style, where the character comes out in white like in the first picture, or Yang style, where the character comes out in red.
A seal, in the Chinese society, is a general name for printing stamps that are used in lieu of signatures in personal documents and art pieces. Chinese seals are usually carved out of stones, and are used with red ink or cinnabar paste.
Each stone is unique by nature and can come in different sizes. The average size is 1.5cm in diameter and 5cm tall.
1) Purchase the listing
2) Send me the name you'd like to customise. If you only have it in English, I'm able to do the translation for you too. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
3) View and approve the drafts, and wait for the customised seal to be ready!
Please understand that the draft you'll receive is a digital one and the hand carved carved stone will not look exactly the same, though I will try my best to retain its style and ensure legibility when carving.
