Product Quality:
One print was my thumb and the other print was my brothers as a Christmas gift to our dad (who only appreciates high quality things). He was THRILLED with this one of a kind sentimental gift. The finger prints turned out identical to what we sent in to Melissa, who was so awesome to work with! She answered all of my questions (I had a ton), and accommodated all of our requests in a timely fashion and made the whole experience so easy and enjoyable. I HIGHLY recommended this gift to everyone!!

Loved the fingerprint ring Melissa made for me. She did a wonderful job & she was also very easy to work with. Very professional & she answered all of my questions & concerns. I couldn't believe how detailed the fingerprint looked on the ring. Almost looked 3 D ! She also inscribed "our quote" on the inside. have the feeling I am going to be keeping her very busy shortly. Definitely will be a returning customer. If you want to buy your spouse or Children a beautiful keepsake, this is the gift !!

I purchased this necklace for my friend whose daughter was terminally ill. Melissa was so helpful and sensitive throughout our interaction. The necklace arrived on time and in a simple but lovely little box. Melissa did a wonderful job. It is so well crafted and my friend loves it. Melissa stayed in touch with me and gave me very personal service. I highly recommend her!

Overall Experience:
Melissa worked closely with me to design a special piece from my daughter. So many times, I've ordered items online with minimal communication - hoping what I receive is close to the idea I have in my mind. I didn't worry for a second with this beautiful piece of art. nWhat Melissa created for me was perfect - actually better than what I had hoped. She spent the time to get to know us and add special touches to make the pendant very special and personal. She is a delight to work with in every way and a gifted artist. I'll be ordering more from her soon.

Overall Experience:
This was by far one of the coolest elements of our wedding. It really can't get any more personal than to have your fingerprint constantly touching your spouses finger! It is beautifully made and Melissa is very easy to work with and returns emails promptly. Will purchase from her again in the future!

Melissa is truly talented!i had lots of ideas and Melissa helped design the most perfect pendant to suit my own specifications. She kept in regular contact with plenty of photographs along the way, she even kept the inscription that my husband had written on the back a secret. The end result was even better than I could have wished for. Melissa is now designing a ring for me! Thank you so much!

That's My Impression

About Me:

If anyone understands the meaning of everything happens for a reason, it’s Melissa Hansen, owner of That’s My Impression. What was the result of a dream – literally and figuratively – has become a lucrative online business for Melissa and her young family. After taking jewelry classes in Cape Town, then receiving additional follow-up education in London and Tennessee, Melissa received her teaching credentials. This allowed her to take her passion for jewelry-making to a whole new level. “I had a dream about the name of my company three years before I started selling jewelry. I started making and selling my jewelry and I was hooked!,” Melissa says. While working in a dental office, Melissa was making a nice side income from her hobby of creating imprinted jewelry and selling her unique pieces to friends, family and coworkers. Her customers couldn’t get enough of her personalized jewelry. Who wouldn’t want to wear That's My Impression HeartHandwritingtheir children’s artwork or hand prints, and pet paw prints? Melissa soon found herself looking to turn her hobby into a full-time business. On a whim, she decided to purchase her own kiln from a private seller and got more than she ever bargained for. When she discovered the kiln’s owner was soon leaving on a mission to Israel and looking to sell her entire jewelry business, Melissa decided to take the plunge and become a full-time jewelry maker. Talk about kismet! Melissa opened her Etsy shop in 2010, but her local business kept her so busy she didn’t get around to listing Etsy items until 2012. It took just four days to sell her first piece. Almost three years later, That’s My Impression is still going strong and selling custom jewelry to happy customers all over the world. Melissa also sells her items via her own website. Besides selling her handcrafted jewelry on Etsy, Melissa has online shops on CustomMade, Hatch.co and ArtFire. Each piece is expertly handcrafted by Melissa using the techniques she’s learned while traveling the globe. Melissa uses only the finest precious metal clays available – all made from recycled materials and absolutely eco-friendly. “I was first introduced to Precious Metal Clay (PMC) in Cape Town. It was there that I decided that I wanted to become a jewelry teacher and, ultimately, to sell my own artwork. Since then, I have traveled the globe to learn different styles and techniques, both modern and ancient, that I’ve added to my product line,” Melissa explains. That's My Impression creates from these precious metals, Melissa creates personalized memorial rings, necklaces, pendants, cufflinks and jewelry from pets. Each is handcrafted by using an actual fingerprint, thumbprint, hand print, footprint, pet’s paw print, child’s drawing, image, or actual handwriting – all from INK & PAPER or a photo. Molds are rarely used, and only at the purchaser’s request. Additionally, Melissa wants to be sure buyers know that, even if a loved one has passed on, she can still use a copy of their inked fingerprint or a note that they wrote. What a lovely keepsake! Melissa Hansen loves interacting with clients and customers. Be sure to connect with her on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.
