A Beautiful Mess. I am a total sucker for personalized items. As I type this, I'm drinking coffee out of a mug with a big gold "G" printed across it—I just can't help it. Personalizing potential is one reason that I love doing projects with stamped jewelry. I made these hand-stamped necklaces a few months ago, and I still wear them all the time. So I thought it would be fun to make an initial bracelet as well. The other thing I love about stamped jewelry is that it looks really professional, so unless you confess your little DIY secret, everyone will think you special ordered it from somewhere. Supplies:– gold coin discs (with holes already punched)– gold chain– jump rings– lobster claw closure– jeweler's bench block - letter or number punch stamps (I used 6mm size stamps)- hammer– tape– needle nose pliers– jewelry wire cutters– rubbing alcohol (70% isopropyl alcohol) and black marker (optional) First you'll want to tape the very top and bottom edge of your coin onto your jeweler's block.
A Beautiful Mess. Ever since I started playing around with DIY stamping techniques last year, I have to admit that I've been a little obsessed (so far I've also made these bracelets and necklaces). There are so many different ways to use the stamping materials, and I really like this version that uses long stamping blanks mounted to leather bracelets. They are pretty fast to make, and you can customize them a lot by using different colors of leather and stamping whatever phrase or hashtag you want on different ones.
Yay for choices! Supplies:-scraps of medium weight leather (real or faux)–metal bar stamping blanks–snaps and snap setter (line 20 size)–1/16" hollow rivets -1/16" hole piercing and setting tools (this tool is great and does both)-fabric scissors or metal ruler and rotary cutter–metal letter punch set Optional:–jewelers block (I recommend one as it gives you a cleaner stamp when under your metal)-Sharpie marker and rubbing alcohol (to darken the letters) A Beautiful Mess. I don't think I'm alone in this thought, but I love personalized objects. Take any cool object and add a phrase I love, my husband's or cats' names, a meaningful song lyric—I'm a total sucker for it all. For Valentine's Day this year I got a silver bar necklace with my guy's name engraved, and ever since then I've been dying for more personalized necklaces.
