Retired - Survivor Hand Stamped Necklace

PROJECT N1028
Designer: Megan Milliken
Skill Level: Intermediate
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I made this necklace to honor my step-mom Vivian who is a breast cancer survivor. Make your own with the initials of those you'd like to honor.
Instructions
  1. Before you begin, watch the video: How to Make a Name Stamped Mother's Necklace. Follow the instructions in the beginning of the video through the stamping and filling in of the letters. Once the video moves on to dapping, you do not need to finish watching for the purposes of this project.
  2. Using the technique shown in the video, stamp your chosen initials onto a 14.5mm solid brass stamping blank using an 1/8" alphabet punch set, and fill in the letters.
  3. Place a small amount of E6000 glue onto one side of a 22mm sterling silver "survivor" affirmation ring, keeping the glue closer to the inside edge. Glue it onto a 21mm sterling silver blank circle pendant.
  4. Put some glue onto the back of your stamped blank and press it into the center of the ring on the pendant. Wipe away any excess glue and allow to dry before moving on.
  5. Place a 4mm round light rose crystal bead onto a 1", 22 gauge silver plated head pin. Create a simple wire loop after the bead.
  6. Cut an 18" length of sterling silver rolo chain.
  7. Open a sterling silver 5mm, 18 gauge jump ring. Hang your pendant from it, then place the chain length in the ring and close it.
  8. Use the wire loop you created to hang the crystal bead on the chain a link or two to one side of your pendant.
  9. Use another jump ring to attach a sterling silver heart lobster clasp from one end of your chain.
  10. Place a jump ring on the remaining end of your chain.
  11. Allow all glue to dry for at least 24 hours before wearing.
