Learn all sorts of ways to manipulate that metal: Embed letters and symbols into the metal using steel stamps, dap (or curve) your charms to create concave discs, texturize using a ball pein hammer, and then use a special technique to darken within your stamped areas and highlight your design. Learn about adding Swarovski flat back crystals and layering techniques to add dimension to your jewelry. You’ll never be stuck looking for that perfect charm again, when you can make anything you like!
