How to make a metal stamped jewelry

Product Details

Materials:

1/8” metal stamp set

Washers

14-gauge galvanized wire

Wire cutters

Needle-nose pliers

Hammer

Steel block

Black permanent marker

Steel wool

Twine

Earplugs

\



Directions:

1. Using the permanent marker, mark small dots on the washer where you want your letters.  If you position the letters along the bottom, they will read upright when hanging.

\


2. Don your earplugs (hearing safety first!) and put the washer on the steel block. Choose a letter stamp and position on the first dot.  Hammer hard without moving the letters out of position for about 10 strikes.  That was the magic number for me to get them deep enough.

3.  When the name is complete, colour in the newly stamped letter with the marker and then scuff off the excess with the steel wool.  This will darken the letter and help it to stand out.

4. You can either hang the washer now with some twine…

5. …or make a stake from the metal wire for ground plants: cut a length of wire 6 inches longer than you want it to stand above the soil.  Bend the bottom of the wire with the needle-nose pliers into a v-shape.  This will create stability in the soil.

\


6. Curl the top of the wire around the washer into a decorative shape, again using the needle-nose pliers.
