Trying My Hand at Jewelry Stamping

Many times, I see something at the store that I really want to buy but I decide to wait until it goes on sale. That's my overall attitude with things that I like but don't need. 

I had my eye on this craft kit and every time I was at that store, I would check if the price went down. Well, after a year, it finally did!

Here's what's inside:

Pendants and chains, metal alphabet stamps, a stamping hammer, a stamping block, vinyl tape, pliers, and a practice blank.

The very first time I tried the kit, I made a key chain:

I practiced on a metal circle from an old piece of jewelry. I taped it to the stamping block using washi tape. This kept the metal ring in place and acted as a guide so that my letters were straight.

I chose the word "Grace". It's a powerful word that means, "elegance of form" and "the freely given, unmerited favor and love of God."

I attached it to a metal key ring recycled from an old key chain...TADA!

On my second try, this is what I made:

"Love" on a flower charm.

This time, I used a trivet made of cork to minimize the noise when hammering. 

I used they vinyl tape to keep the charm from moving around.

I started spelling the word from the center outwards instead of the traditional way of first letter to the last.

This method helps space out the letters evenly. 

I used a light hand when hammering and the letters still came out.

I then attached the charm to a hook clasp...TADA!

On my third attempt, I used these: 

They are stamp blanks reminiscent of military dog tags. 

I stamped on "Be not afraid" that can be a reminder in challenging times.

I'll keep practicing and tell you about my new creations in a future post...TADA!


  1. I've been curious about this craft after seeing pictures on Pinterest. Good tips on using the cork trivet. I like all three of your stamping word choices.

    1. It's a noisy craft and a little challenging to get the letters in a straight line/equally spaced but it's a lot of fun! Thanks Priscilla!

  2. I have this same kit, but haven’t used it yet. Luckily, I got mine at a yard sale last Summer for one dollar. After seeing this post, i think I will pull it out and give it a shot. I never thought about taping the blank down. What a great idea. Thanks. By the way, your tags turned out great!

    1. Thank you so much BrendaLea! I can't wait to see what you make!
