Instructions
If considering purchasing this bundle, please review the supplies and tools sections carefully to see what you might already have or will need to purchase to complete this project. For instance the actual mandala punch set is listed in tools, and not part of the project bundle.
  1. To see how to use a mandala stamp set, please watch the video: How to Use Mandala and Border Metal Stamping Sets.
  2. In the above video you will learn how to place a transparent round guide on your stamping blank, how to position your mandala stamps along the guide, and how to do the stamping.
  3. For this particular design, position the stamp guide sticker off-center on your round blank. Please refer to the photo for where the "middle" looks to be on the edge of the blank. Also, please refer to the photo for the placement of the mandala design stamps.
  4. Once you have stamped your mandala, pull off the sticker and remove any excess sticker bits that remain. To make the impressions really stand out, color over them with a stamp enamel marker. Also color over the border of the stamping blank. Let dry for 1 minute and then wipe off the excess with a paper towel.
  5. Next, open a jump ring and slip it onto your pendant as well as your finished chain necklace. Close the jump ring.
  6. Place a pearl onto a head pin and create a wrapped wire loop after the pearl. Trim off excess wire. Create a total of 3 of these. Open a jump ring and place all three dangles onto a jump ring and link onto the chain necklace. Close the jump ring.
  7. Enjoy!
