About

Family Photo of Tamlyn, her husband and two children

My name is Tamlyn. My husband and I have two young boys. We are based in the diverse South Island of New Zealand. We are on the east coast, in Dunedin. The wildlife is plentiful and includes Albatross, sea lions and penguins. The city has a strong bi-cultural history from the Scottish and Maori. We love spending time outside, going on walks and enjoying the scenery.

I started True Impressions as a side interest, but it has grown since. When I first heard about hand stamping, I thought it was so unique and special and I thought “I can do that!” After spending a lot of time practicing and making sure the quality of every piece was top notch, I decided to start selling on Etsy and eventually on my own personal website. Every piece is lovingly hand stamped at my home with quality materials, so your personalised jewellery piece will last a very long time.

I use Sterling Silver, 14K Gold-Filled and 14K Rose Gold-Filled. These metals are great for those with sensitive skin. Although gold-filled isn’t solid gold, it offers the same qualities such as beauty, strength and durability. My goal is to provide a high quality, personalised piece of jewellery that is also very affordable. When these metals are cared for properly, they can last a lifetime.

Being a mother of two young ones is my priority and I absolutely love it. I work on orders around my children’s needs. I am self-employed and part of the small business network in New Zealand. So when you shop with me, you can be assured you are supporting small, local business.

I love being able to contribute in a small way to the sentiment and meaning that personalised hand stamped jewellery conveys. There is nothing better then giving or receiving a personalised gift. 

I also welcome any feedback so that I can keep on improving the product, my service and any processes. I hope you enjoy exploring the store. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

Thank you for your support!
