Making Metal Stamping Charms and Pendants


Hey, Hey! I was doing some metal stamping the other day and thought might as well snap some photos and make a tutorial out of it.

It's super easy and fun. Stamping is great for personalizing jewelry for gifts. How about that apple necklace as a teacher gift, what teacher wouldn't love it?

Here's the how-to.





Supplies: Metal stamping blanks, metal letter stamps, an anvil or metal plate( for placing blank on), masking tape, permanent marker, flat surfaced hammer, ball pein hammer (optional)



First, you'll need to place your stamping blank onto your metal anvil or plate.



Place the tape over the top of the blank. This will hold it in place while your stamping. It also makes the  stamps stay in one place while hammering. 

With your marker, write out what you would like to stamp. This will be a guide for your stamping.


Start by placing the letter standing upright on the blank. With your flat surfaced hammer, hit the top of the stamp 2-3 times without moving the stamp out of place.


Continue across your blank, stamping all of your letters.


When your finished with stamping, remove the tape from your blank.


If you would like your stamp to have more texture, you can use the rounded side of your ball pein hammer to add some. I just randomly bang around on the blank.


To make the letters stand out more on the blank, scribble over them with the permanent marker. Take a cloth and rub the blank. This will push the marker into the crevices.


You're finished with your stamping. 





Update: So many have asked for the supplies, here are some Amazon links to get you started stamping. Mini Anvil, ball pein hammer, letter stamps, tape, and stamping blanks.


Enjoy!

  4. Thanks for your information. The major tool used in the process of forming a metal is Steel Stamping method. In this method, the metals are formed by giving pressure into the surface of a metal.

  10. Great tutorial. Something I learned is that I had better luck switching to aluminum (something i encourage beginners to try out now) - it saved me a lot of headaches and frustration when stamping on harder metals such as stainless steel. I buy all my blanks over at http://handstamping.com I use impress art stamps and they stamp like butter on those aluminum blanks.
