When my daughter (KelliRae) was 8 years old, she decided she wanted to "teach herself responsibility" by making and selling jewelry. She needed some help with a few things so she asked me to be her partner...
KelliRae decided to name her business "My Hero Creations." She told me she chose this name because her daddy is her "HERO" and she wants to create jewelry to remind people who their hero is...
I started making hand-stamped charms to fulfill KelliRae's custom charm requests and found that I enjoyed making meaningful pieces for others to wear. Although some stories are heartbreaking, it means a lot to me that I am asked and trusted to design something special for each and every customer.

Christina and KelliRae Olivas
All of our products are handmade and personalized just for you. KelliRae assembles and designs her jewelry after she returns home from school and on the weekend. She loves to help create each order and definitely has an eye for design.
Our personalized custom charms, bracelets and necklaces are hand stamped by me (Christina Olivas), one letter at a time, using special tools. Thus, each piece will be unique and you should expect variations from the photos. No two pieces will be alike. Text and designs may not be absolutely perfect and straight as each letter is individually stamped. This gives you the unique detail to your piece and should not be considered a defect in craftsmanship.
KelliRae's daddy was deployed to Afghanistan when she came to us with an idea, a plan, and a box of beads. With our approval, help, and support...she successfully took her dream and made it reality on September 11, 2012.
When KelliRae sat down and explained her idea to us, we had no idea how successful it would become. Her dad and I wanted to support her dreams and give her a chance to do something that was important to her, while distracting her from thinking about the dangers of her dad's deployment. We also believed it would teach her the value of money and that alone would stay with her for the rest of her life (She learned that lesson quickly!).
We made the decision to invest the money for a few things that she could experiment with and KelliRae took over from there. I set up a little shop for her and it quickly became something more for both of us. I started hand-stamping charms to fulfill her custom requests and discovered I really enjoyed challenging myself, while making a small, blank piece of metal into a wearable piece of art.
