Retired - Embrace Love Necklace

PROJECT N850
Designer: Julie Bean
Skill Level: Intermediate
A timeless message of embrace love is metal stamped on an ornate stamping blank in this simple but elegant design. With just two words, this is a great beginner metal stamping project.
Instructions
  1. Begin this project by watching the video: How to Metal Stamp a Cuff Bracelet using ImpressArt Tools. Although the video does not show this exact project, it is going to show you how to use the sticker guide, how to line your letters up along the sticker, how to metal stamp, and how to fill in the impressions with the stamp enamel marker.
  2. Set your stamping blank down on your bench block. Next, place a stamp guide sticker onto the blank. You want it positioned going horizontal long ways across the blank and also just slightly below center (this way when you stamp, your letters will be centered). Let the stamp sticker go over both sides of the blank so it actually ends up taping the blank to the block. This will help stabilize it when you stamp.
  3. The combination of the words embrace love, including the space between them, is 12 characters long. Following what you learned in the video about how to do your letter spacing using the bracelet stamp guide sticker, write the words embrace love on your sticker using a pen. You want your words to be centered on the tape and on the blank.
  4. After you have done all the prep work from above, stamp your letters using your alphabet set and hammer.
  5. Once all the letters have been stamped, go over them with the stamp enamel marker. Wait a minute or so and then wipe away any excess ink.
  6. Take your hole punch pliers and punch a hole in each top corner of your stamped blank. To see how to do this, please watch the video: How to Use Eurotool Europunch Metal Hole Punch Pliers. Just make sure that you don't punch it too close to the edge and accidentally punch the side of the stamping.
  7. Next, take your premade chain necklace, find the middle point, and cut at that middle point using your flush cutters.
  8. Open a jump ring and link it to one of the holes in your pendant as well as one side of your now cut chain necklace. Close the jump ring.
  9. Repeat the previous step on the other side of your necklace.
  10. All done!
