Mother's Day Contest Keepsake Necklace

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? I love the way that they hang on the wire and how the birthstones hang over the charm with plenty of room for the word. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I would practice stamping words on scrap metal before going to the actual blank. It takes a little practice for the letters to line up. Further, only hit the stamp 1 time with the hammer. If you'll notice on the Nana necklace, my first A "jumped" when I tried to hit it again and I got a double image. It was tempting to get a deeper impression on all other letters, but just use a firm, even pressure and you'll get a good impression with 1 hit of the hammer.
