Jewelry Mojo Challenge Week 6: Inspired by Words
Week 6 of Heather Powers' Jewelry Making Mojo Challenge is all about being inspired being words and translating that into a piece of jewelry.
This prompt was a good excuse to finally work on a project requested by one of my good friends from library school. A few months ago, my friend Carrie asked if I could make her a necklace with a pendant using the quote "Embrace Your Narrative." I got out my letter stamps and some silver plated blanks from Nunn Design and got to work hammering the quote onto a large circle (the only shape I had that the word narrative would fit onto). Using some old business cards from when I had run for office within my professional organization (reuse, recycle anyone?) I made a little resin filled pendant to go along with the stamped tags. Fingers crossed that she likes the finished result!
For those of you who do more metal stamping than I do... do you have any favorite sets of letter stamps? I'd love some recommendations since right now I just have the really basic capital letters in 2 and 3 mm. I want to branch out be keep getting overwhelmed when I look at things.
