This initial necklace tutorial is going to show you a stenciled way about how to diy personalized mommy necklace as her mothers day gift.

Step 1: Stencil Letters Onto Blanks

1st, place your favorite stencil onto blank;

2nd, hammer it and get the well engraved letter;

3rd, depict the engraved letter with marker.
This is adorable! I love the simplicity of the design, too. <br> <br>For all those wanting to make something similar, I got my stamp set of letters and numbers, circles with the hole already punched, and a steel block (it is like a tiny workbench for hammering the stamps, it really works) from a store online where I buy many of my jewelry and craft supplies. it is called fire mountain gems. you can also buy alphabets on ebay as well as the stamping blanks in various metals.
Pretty sure you can get aluminum and other metal discs at both craft places and hardware stores. The softer the metal the easier the impression will be to make. You can get soft copper washers--donut shape--no hole drilling needed!-at hardware store plumbing areas--these are also known as &quot;Compression washers&quot;. <br> <br>For the letter or number punches--you can find these at some hardware places and I think Harbor Freight or on line (I got mine on ebay) much cheaper this way than the crafty sorta places! Just be sure to check the size of the stampers. <br> <br>For the hole--if the disc does not come with a hole you can make one with a small drill and use either a drill press or a small vise---get the kind you can clamp to your table edge or onto a board that you can weight down or clamp to the table. You will need some fine sand paper (wet dry perhaps) and maybe a file to smooth the rough edges on this--there may very well be hole punches that will go thru soft metal and leave a nice edge--if there are please tell ME!!! <br> <br>The impression can indeed be made darker with a Sharpie but seal it with some clear spray or even clear nail polish! <br> <br>There are several good books out there on how to stamp metal that are worth the few $$$ to buy or see if your library has then--some larger ones have good crafts and arts sections or will order them for you. <br> <br>Good 'ible just missing some info! <br> <br>
Very pretty. Please, where to you get the blanks, and how did you punch the hole? Oh, and where did you find the tools?
Simply beautiful!
