Personalized Stamped Metal Charm Necklaces

Today’s craft is simple, easy to execute and so much cheaper than the inspiration, you might faint.  HERE is the inspiration piece.  It cost $130.  It is a very nice necklace and I, along with much of America, wanted one this past Christmas.  However, the price is steep for some stamped metal, so I decided to try stamping my own name necklaces.

(Note: Even after buying all the supplies, two of which you can use over and over and over again — you are STILL far under the cost of the stamped metal inspiration necklace!!)

Stamped-metal-charms-Crafts-Unleashed-2Start with your metal charm and line up your letter of choice with the metal punch…

Stamped-metal-charms-Crafts-Unleashed-3Repeat this step with all the letters in the name, then color in each letter with metallic marker.

Stamped-metal-charms-Crafts-Unleashed-4Wipe off excess with a rag (it might need to be slightly damp).  You want the metallic color to stay in the letters to help them pop out from the background.

Play around with colors to see which you prefer!

Hammered Necklace WritingTo finish off the stamped metal necklace, string the charm onto your ball chain and then attach the self-adhesive “cover” to the top.

Stamped-metal-charms-Crafts-Unleashed-6 Stamped-metal-charms-Crafts-Unleashed-7I love the price of these stamped metal necklaces (around $2-3 each!), the simplicity and the almost dog-chain-feel they have with the ball chains.  You can string mutiple charms on one necklace or wear several for your multiple children, or simply wear a single charm with your own name!

    I’ve seen these so many times but just not in our budget. I’d love to make some for friends, family tho. Think I could hit a hammer. Guess my biggest question is where to buy the charms and the letters to stamp. I think Harbor Freight has a set. Next time we go out there for casters, (much better prices than other stores in Grand Junction) I’ll look into the letter stamps. So much can be done with this craft to personalize the necklace or a bracelet. Glad you shared this project. Happy weekend Pinning
