Retired - Kiss Me I'm Irish Necklace

PROJECT N213
Designer: Andrea Morici
Skill Level: Intermediate
Using ordinary nail polish, we created the enameled-looking stamped letters on a little t-shirt stamping blank. What a clever and festive project!
Instructions
  1. If you are not already familiar with how to use a letter punch set for stamping on metal, please watch our instructional video before proceeding. Using the instruction provided in the video as a guide, stamp your letters onto the t-shirt shaped brass blank, as shown in the photos.
  2. To create the green coloring on the letters, we have used both white and green nail polish. If you are unable to find white and green nail polish at your local drug store, you may use acrylic paint instead. Once you have your t-shirt stamped, apply a thin layer of white nail polish to the letter indentations, immediately wiping off excess polish with a paper towel. Set aside to dry.
  3. Once the white nail polish is dry, apply the green nail polish to the letters. Once again, immediately wipe off the excess with a paper towel. Allow polish to dry. If there are spots where the polish stuck to other parts of the stamping blank, remove them by gently rubbing the blank with extra fine steel wool.
  4. Open three oval jump rings. Thread one of these jump rings through the loop at the top of the t-shirt stamping. Close this jump ring once more.
  5. Thread your two-foot length of chain through the jump ring at the top of the t-shirt stamping.
  6. Add each of the remaining two jump rings to each end of the chain. Thread one of these jump rings through the loop on your lobster clasp.
  7. Close both jump rings once more.
