HI Gaea! Got my goodies in the mail today! Yippee! They are so summery, I love em!

I am looking forward to learning a new technique. I recently ordered a letter stamp set for metal or clay pendants/charms. I hope it ends up being my favorite technique, but we'll see! I love the incorporation of words in jewelry, it adds that extra story-telling element that is so great in today's designs!

I am with Lorelei... I also have a stamp set, but have yet to use it. so I guess I am not giving tips but asking for them!! LOL
Anyway I love the necklace you have pictured above.

I played last week, can I play again?!?
The other night I dropped into our local yarn shop just to look around. They carry quilting fabric, too and sometimes fondling yarn and admiring the colors can be soothing. And then I saw the buttons!!! They have the best buttons! What great clasps! I've been wanting to do a flower based bracelet and found the perfect button to use as the clasp. So my tip is, stop at a yarn shop. You'll be suprised the ideas and goodies you might find to use in jewelry!

Lorelei ,Yay! Metal stamping sounds like fun! Let me know how that goes! I'd love to see examples of it. What company did you purchase from! Let us know how that works and if you blog about it, I love to link to you...

Carlene, of course you can! I love finding unexpected jewelry supplies in unlikely places! The hardware store is a fave!

Thanks Bunny B!

Thanks for the comments all!

Hi! Me again!
I actually found this stamping set on Etsy from EviesToolEmporium for $13! They have a bunch of different sizes. And since I'm not really sure if I will LOVE this process, I was definitely willing to pay $13 instead of $51 which is how much they are through FusionBeads!
