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.


  1. A lovely piece! I love the pop of color you resin piece adds to the necklace. Your friend will love this. I would love to do metal stamping but have no idea what size or brand of stamps to get. Plus my little budget can not afford more tools.

  2. That resin piece stands out so well, it draws your eye right to the words. I like it a lot, the simplicity, the bright color!

  3. I adore it!!! It's absolutely perfect.

    1. I'm so glad you like it, Carrie! I'll get my act together to get it sent your way next week!
