“Metal Stamping” Workshop with Polly Hendrickson
Cost:  $45.00

Have you see those darling metal jewelry pieces that have been hand stamped with words, names, numbers, quotations, or phrases?  Do you love jewelry, but just aren’t sure exactly how to make your own?  Then this is the perfect Workshop for you!  From Beginners and up, you’re invited to come and play with Polly as she shares the secrets in making your own metal charms with this fun and easy technique using Metal Alphabet and Number Stamps on sheet metal.  Beginning with sheet metal that you’ve cut into any shape you like, you’ll learn how to use the Metal Stamps to get a finished look.  To make your charms personal and unique, you’ll stamp several words or phrases of your choice onto your cut metal pieces and with just a little practice, you’ll find you’re on your way to creating fabulous jewelry pieces.  Your finished charms make wonderful gifts, as well as the perfect embellishment to all your mixed media projects and journals, too.  Call early to make your reservations, because with seating limited to only 10 students, this fun and creative Workshop is sure to fill quickly and you don’t want to miss a minute!
Tools & Supplies to Bring (if you have them):  Bench block; ball peen hammer; jewelry pliers (round nose & chain nose); small selection of beads to include with your charms; Alphabet or Number Stamp sets (available at Harbor Freight Tools for under $10); sheet metal (bronze, brass, copper, or even sterling silver).  Don’t worry if you don’t have some of the tools; they will be provided for your use.  All other supplies and materials will be provided.
