Stamped Ombre Patina Necklace

This statement necklace combines both stamping and patinas to create a lovely ombre effect. With just three design stamps, we were able to create this ornate stamped pattern. We cut out our bib-like shape with a pair of metal shears and finished the edges with a chasing hammer. Play around with your collection of design stamps and letter sets to make a piece that is totally your own creation. Our free class Mandala Stamping is a good place to start!





Mixed Metal Mandala

These pendants are a fun, new take on Collage Stamping and patinas! Anything goes when you gather your various design stamps to make these beauties. We found it easiest to divide our blanks into quarters by drawing with a sharpie pen, and then working from one side to the opposite side and everything in between!

The metallic patinas have a stronger impact the deeper you stamp, so don't be too gentle when stamping this project. Have fun building different shapes off of others and creating a whole new design that is all your own!
