How to Get the Most Out of Your Curved Metal Design Stamps - Thinking Out of the Box

Curve Appeal

If you're like us, you'll want to get the biggest bang for your buck. So we've put together some different ways we've used some of our most popular curved metal design stamps. We hope you will find some new inspiration whether you have our curves or your own.

See all of the metal design stamps we reference in this blog post here.

The first examples are from Lisa Niven Kelly and Taryn McCabe's book, New Stamped Metal Jewelry. With raving reviews, we can say with confidence that this book has been well received and useful to many artists, beginning to intermediate. Check it out here. Books ordered from Beaducation come signed by Lisa and Taryn!


Here are more examples using our curve stamps. There are so many different ways to use them, for literally any occasion. Here are some of our favorite FREE Online Tutorials for projects like these:

This beautiful design below uses both the Beaducation Original Rays of the Sun and Radiant Lines as well as the Crystal Katana and Flat Back Crystal Setter with Swarovski Crystals. The sparkle is so pretty! 

TIP: Use a bowl of rice to keep your cuff in place while applying the crystals. 



Mandala stamping is not only very popular, but fun and addicting too! With a carefully laid out design, you can create gorgeous pieces. Check out our product video on How to Divide a Circle Using a Circle Divider Grid for Mandala Stamping and download our Circle Divider Grid.

Just about any curve style metal design stamps will work in pieces like this. We've used our Beaducation Original Indian Curve Metal Design Stamp.

We used our Beaducation Original Indian Curve Metal Design Stamp twice in this design, and also the Beaducation Original Radiant Lines Metal Design Stamp.

Little reminders go a long way. Give any cuff a decorative edge with a curved stamp. We've used Beaducation Original Rays of Sun and the Triangle Curve Metal Design Stamps to achieve this look.

Keychains are for everyone. Personalized ones are just a little more special. This keychain was made for Graduation but what you create is all up to you. We used only the bottom half of the Beaducation Original Radiant Heart Metal Design Stamp here.

We also used the "O" in our Beaducation Original Kismet Uppercase Letter Stamp Set 7mm twice around the edge. These letter stamps are sold individually as well. It's fun to think out of the box!

Rings will always be a favorite. How you design yours is a personal choice. Check out these two fun examples. Beaducation Original Rays of the Sun Metal Design Stamp is used to border the Beaducation Original Radiant Lines Metal Design Stamp



With just our Beaducation Original Indian Curve and Degrees Symbol (or Circle) Metal Design Stamp, we made this edgy ring. Sometimes, less is more.



The holidays are upon us and these earrings are perfect to gift, wear or sell. The detail is fun while the blank is super light! The Beaducation Original Radiant Lines Metal Design Stamp is perfect for designs like this but really, you could use many different curve styles.



One of the things we love most about our ornament blanks is that they can double up as both a gift tag and then holiday decor for the home or the tree, year after year. We used the edge of our Beaducation Original Fan 2, Whimsical Metal Design Stamp. You can use many different design stamps to achieve this look. 



Check out this gorgeous design using lots of curves including Beaducation Original Rays of the Sun, the Radiant Lines and Indian Curve Metal Design Stamps. Mix them up or use just one, either way you'll have a unique design. 



You know we love our Beaducation Original Fan Metal Design Stamps! We used just a little bit of one here as a border. Also used is our Beaducation Original Rays of the Sun Metal Design Stamp.

How cute!! And the ornament is cute too LOL! By connecting the tips of our Beaducation Original Indian Curve and Tall Moroccan Arch we've made some decorative oval shapes.

We had plenty of snowflake metal design stamps to choose from but we wanted to create something stylized. We achieved this by using the circle and asterisk metal design stamps. Who would've thought our Beaducation Original Rays of the Sun Metal Design Stamp could also be used as garland?

If you haven't guessed by now, our Beaducation Original Rays of the Sun Metal Design Stamp is a favorite around here. It has made it in to so many different projects, including the border for this star ornament. We've also used another favorite, our Beaducation Original Indian Curve Metal Design Stamp.



We hope you've enjoyed seeing different ways to use some of the same curved stamps. Perhaps you'll even bring out some of your older stamps and use them in different ways too! Happy stamping!
