DIY- Hand Stamped Jewelry

Hey guys! I have a surprise tutorial today from one of my lovely sponsors- Katlyn. :)) I hope you enjoy!! 

Hey everyone! This is Katlyn, the writer over at The Dreamy Meadow here to take over Bree’s blog for the day! I was so honored that she asked me to write a guest post for her so I had to think of something fun.. I have decided on my hand stamping adventure! I am also hoping to put some of these bad boys in my shop, Pure Trinkets
So please forgive me since I am not a master at this craft. To be honest I am quite the newbie who learning to work with the tools with two left hands! I do however have lots of fun in the process and get tons of anger out after a long day of toddler screaming!
Here is what you’re going to need if you want to make a hand stamped masterpiece….
 + Blanks (I am using blank jewelry washers)
+ Steel Bench Block
+ Hammer
+ Stamping Kit (I use all lower case)
+ Sharpie Marker
+ Alcohol
+ Cotton Pads
+ Polishing Pad
Please note that this is not the type of project you want to start if you aren’t financially ready. You cannot start hand stamping for less than $40. 
 Anyways… It’s pretty simple to do (for the most part). 
First you are going to want to measure where you want each letter to fall on the blank. It takes a bit of practice to, as you may have the letter turned a little cock-eyed or a little lower. But hey it ads character, right? Right! You then want to stabilize the letter stamp on the blank and hit it rather hard, maybe several times to get a nice deep stamp.
 Apply the sharpie to the letters being sure to get it in all the little edges. Once you have colored over and in the letters, take a little bit of alcohol on a cotton pad and wipe away the excess sharpie.
Polish. Add some beads or trinkets. Attach to a chain (sorry I did not picture this). And enjoy your new beautiful creation! I know I love each and every one of mine!
Thank you so much for joining me today! Hope you stop by the bloggy blog to read more!

Hi! I'm Bree

In my day-job, I teach amazing individuals how to make money with their blog and social media! I started blogging back in 2010 as a hobby, and it turned into my dream job—helping women make their own money on their own terms. Blogging became a job that I love—now, I’m back to use this online journal as a fun place to document my life so I can look back 20 years from now and remember all the magical things. 

I use baking as a way
to de-stress...

And I love to play hostess and make my guests fabulous cocktails...
