Home & Family: DIY Stamped Necklace
- Steel letter punch kit
- Metal plates with holes (you can buy them without holes but putting the holes in takes an extra step)
- A steel block
- Mini hammer
- Masking tape
- Chain necklace
- 2 jump rings the same metal as the chain necklace
Place the metal plate in the center of the steal block and place a piece of tape across it where you want the letters to line up. This also holds it in place.
With a sharpie pen or any pen, mark where you want the letters to be.
Take the middle letter punch (in this case the "v" as I am spelling Ava) and place just above the tape line centering it on the middle black line.
Then work your way out
Take your jump rings and loop them through the two holes on either side on the letter plate.
With a pair of pliers cut your necklace in the center so that where the necklace is cut is lined up with the fastener.
Then attach the chain to the letter plate and close each of the jump rings and you are done!
