Personalized Gifts - Personalized Jewelry - Personalized Wedding Gifts - Personalized Home Goods - Keepsakes
I love providing meaningful items for special occasions and everyday use.
Welcome to Ara Designs. I have recently started selling laser-engraved pieces full time and it has been a blast. It's quite different from my last line of work, doing nuclear chemistry research, but I love learning, and the challenge of a new career has been a great driving force.
I started off selling hand-stamped garden tags and jewelry on Etsy. I loved offering personalized items, making each product unique, but I'm a perfectionist, so I moved on to laser engraving, a method that still gives me the freedom to create unique products without sacrificing the precision I desire.
My goal is to provide people with meaningful items that have been artfully designed and executed in a meticulous and precise manner, so you get best of both worlds ... professional quality items and the creative design and personalization that makes an item unique and truly yours.
Here's a secret ... I am fond of all things whimsical, cute, and fun. I sometimes feel I have to suppress this side of me to get across my dedication and competence; and I guess it doesn't particularly shine through as a Ph.D. Chemist. I'm also fond of minimal, high-quality design.
All my items are laser-engraved in Holland, Michigan.
Ara Designs is a one-person show at the moment, but we'll see how quickly that changes.
