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.  Each and every item is made with love.

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 Zeeland, Michigan.

Ara Designs is rapidly growing in size thanks to our wonderful customers!
