The Joys of Metal Stamping

Metal stamping is a cool and creative hobby anyone can partake in. All you need are a few supplies which include a hammer, metal stamps, and something to stamp!

The first step is to decide if you want to stamp some jewelry you already have or start with something new. If you are going to use some jewelry you already have it's probably a good idea not to use something too expensive in case you make a mistake.

Then decide what you want to stamp into your jewelry. Words, design, or something else it's all up to you. If you are going to stamp words it's a good idea to lay out your tools ahead of time in the correct order so you don't accidentally make a mistake.

It's a good idea also to draw a line of use some tape to line up the area you want to stamp to keep it straight.  Then just hit the stamp firmly with your hammer and you'll be on your way!
