Stamped for Love

This month I have been lucky enough to have my first tutorial published by Bead and Jewellery Magazine. It is in issue 76, the romance and passion-themed one for Valentines Day. This is a great magazine, perfect for seed bead beginners who just want to learn more.

The tutorial is a basic introduction to the technique of hand stamping aluminium. I have previously blogged about my stamping journey here, and the evolution of my polishing. There are lots of suppliers out there for stamping tools, I prefer Little Freckle who has a great range. I tend to get my blanks from Metal Stamping Blanks, always reliable and great quality aluminium blanks.

I created 3 pendant necklaces for this tutorial. If you like them, make sure you buy the magazine to learn how to create them.
