Today’s craft is simple, easy to execute and so much cheaper than the inspiration, you might faint. HERE is the inspiration piece. It cost $130. It is a very nice necklace and I, along with much of America, wanted one this past Christmas. However, the price is steep for some stamped metal, so I decided to try stamping my own name necklaces.
- Rectangle Frame Charms (These come in a variety of finishes)
- Thin Ball Chain (I like the really delicate, lightweight versions for this necklace)
- Metal Punching Set of Letter Punches
- Metallic Markers
- Rag & Small Hammer
(Note: Even after buying all the supplies, two of which you can use over and over and over again — you are STILL far under the cost of the stamped metal inspiration necklace!!)
Play around with colors to see which you prefer!
I love the price of these stamped metal necklaces (around $2-3 each!), the simplicity and the almost dog-chain-feel they have with the ball chains. You can string mutiple charms on one necklace or wear several for your multiple children, or simply wear a single charm with your own name!
