Retired - Live, Love, Grow Necklace

PROJECT N7087
Designer: Rachel Zaimont
Skill Level: Intermediate
An ImpressArt soft-strike bar pendant offers several pristine sides for you to hand-stamp a mindful message. Find a phrase or a series of names that are meaningful to you, and embellish your necklace with a tiny crystal for color.
Instructions
If you're new to metal stamping, you can check out our video on how to use metal punches to get started.
  1. To see how to make this project from start to finish, please watch the video: How to Metal Stamp a 3D Bar Pendant and Make a Necklace. In this video you'll see how to line up your letter punches vertically and hand stamp inspirational words on three sides of your pendant, and how to add enamel to your stamped words for contrast. You'll also see how to put the pendant on a necklace chain and make a small crystal charm (which you can personalize in any color of your choosing).
  2. Enjoy your necklace!
