I have been practicing my metal stamping and I'm having so much fun, except for a few times when I hammered my thumb instead of the metal! ouch! BTW sparklingshamrock.etsy.com has EVERYTHING you can think of to begin this hobby yourself. Metal stamping kits for beginners, metal discs, designer stamps and they all come with instructions. This is an awesome website if you are interested. The seller's name is Sara and she's got alot of personality and wonderful customer service. I left my camera in Connecticut a few weeks ago so I have been relying on my blackberry for photos...I know, I should smack myself ;) That top necklace has a tiny skull and crossbone stamp placed as the letter "I" but u can't see it too well in this photo...I gotta get that camera ;(

I started working at a pre school two weeks ago. I have the two year old class. Everyday I come home with a new sauce on my pants and crackers in my hair...I still have my other job so working at the pre-school makes two jobs. So as you can guess I have been exhausted! But the dreamer never stops dreaming and the creative spirit never stops creating. In between the cracks and crevices of time I have taken on a new project in my jewelry making journey...metal stamping.
I bought a kit to begin stamping on silver and copper discs and I absolutely LOVE it! here is a very amateur picture of a pendant I made for my cousin who came to visit me from Puerto Rico. I plan on using different styles of fonts and adding birth stones to the pendants...They will come in copper or silver.
Whaddya think, not bad for my first try,,,well, atleast I think
On a second note I am honored to have seen a comment from Marisol of Wink Artisans on my blog post about Latina jewelry artists. Her work is fantastic and inspiring, winkartisans.etsy.com...Hi Marisol and thank you for following my blog!!
