Metal Stamping

I've added metal stamping to my list of things I love to make now!
This pendant is copper the largest of the three circles is 1" it's hung on a 20" ball chain.

Some Example Pieces

This is an example of a 3/4" name charm done on copper.
It's got a smooth finish and I hung his Birthstone on a silver bale.

This is the same piece after I've textured it.
This is the "hammered" look,
it's not very photogenic but it really does look nice.
You can see the size a little bit better with the one I'm holding in my hand

Just to note i do realize the "D" is off a bit ...
I would not send this to a customer like this
it was just for an example of textures and other options so i let it go.

This piece started out flat and smooth like the first one
I Domed it so it's like a small bowl
and I also added a "scratched" finish to it

here are the two pieces hanging together.
I can also make one bigger than the other
and attach them to the same jump ring
for a layered look like the live laugh love piece above.

Both of these are copper
but because I'm a horrible photographer
this picture made the hunter pendant look silver
so i thought I'd include that as well
because silver is an option i offer.

Here is one showing the option of mixing different shapes, textures and metals.
my sons name is Lucas so thats on the copper pendant, I textured that with an "*" and domed it. then i put his last initial "B" on a silver heart and left it shiny and smooth and last i added his birthstone in a crystal bead.
this pendant is 3/4"

This is a copper heart washer it's 7/8"
I hung 3 beads from the bottom and made a copper choker for it
This is the same heart as above but the lovely lady who bought it
liked the idea of mixing the metals, which I think looks fab!
So here is the copper pendant with sterling jump rings.

I can write what ever you want on these pendants pretty much. Family necklaces are a popular one i've seen. I will be able to completely personalize these. Custom orders start at $20 but please talk to me about pricing, if you are interested. Because there are so many options on the metal stamping it will be per project priced. I can get you some more pictures of ideas if you aren't exactly sure what you like. I hope the examples of my work above are helpful.
