i'm entering it, and i'm scared. for months i've thought about buying this...
it's a metal stamping kit. it comes with the alphabet, disk punch, and doming block. it's used for making jewelry and such. i received a personalized necklace when caroline was born with her name on it. it is one of my favorite necklaces. i thought it would be great if i made them because everyone compliments me on mine. not only would it earn me some extra cash, but it would make me try something i've never done before. so after a couple months, i took the plunge and bought the kit. i immediately got stressed. i bought the kit yeah, but not the rest of the tools, and not to mention all the jewelry parts (chains, beads, head pins, etc.) plus i have to be creative! so i texted my dear friend casey who is a jewelry making machine. she's helping me find all the things i need and is going to help me in jewelry making 101. haha, i'm really excited about it, but still very nervous. what if i'm terrible and i invest all this time and money into a flop. but casey encouraged me and told me a woman on etsy has sold 2300 in stamped jewelry. so that is huge! i'm not expecting it at all, but i live in a small town and i think it's something that could go over really well! so say a pray for me and newest craft. now gawk at my inspirations.
adorable. i love the teardrop shape.
that bird is so cute!
the pear is adorable. looks like it's wearing a crown. plus i loved the hammered look and the dome shape!
so cute for a mother or grandmother.
i can't wait to get started, but i think i need some cute stamps! etsy here i come!
