To start you will need to buy ball chain (I bought mine on a roll at the craft store) and some charms. I suggest you shop around for a sale as these often do get discounted in sales ads or you might use a coupon to grab these supplies at a deal.
The stainless steel washers are at the hardware store and only cost about ten cents each. Get extra because there is a little learning curve to metal stamping.
You will also need metal stamps. I bought mine from Artbeads but I have since learned that they are cheaper at Harbor Freight PLUS their set includes numbers. You want the 1/8 inch size.
If you are a local friend, you may borrow my stamps if you ever want to, just send me a text or email.
You will also need a stainless steel block like this one to hammer upon. Trust me...you need the block. Use a coupon to buy it. Now, I used something different. We live near a railroad track and I found a steel plate (it's really heavy). I use the gigantic steel plate! I'm a cheapo sometimes.
First you will want to tape your washer to your block so that it will stay in place while you hammer the stamp.
If you want the letters to show up more just color them in with a fine tip sharpie and wipe off excess ink.
I bet you can think of a few people who would love one of these!
Go ahead and make some. Let me know if you do and send me a picture. I would love see what creative ideas you all come up with for your necklaces!
Hope you all have a great weekend! We will be celebrating 2 birthdays on Saturday!
See you Monday!
