I have a couple a Q's if you have time Cheesy

I've got the supplies for handstamping, but I struggle a bit getting things lined up.

What do you use as an Anvil ?  Do you draw lines ? etc.

I use a steel anvil and I have stamps that aren't specifically made for jewellery, but I was advised they would work fine, I struggle with certain letters though, Like A's, they tend to miss the two bottom lines... you look like you might stamp on a softer surface than a steel anvil though Cheesy

TIA

haha well ...i dont use an anvil, i use just a small little steel bench block. i got it in the stamping kit i got off etsy. i recommend getting some stamps that are made for stamping.itll make your life alot easier! beaducation.com has a pretty nice set for about 18 dollars.

as for linin it up i really just freehand it. i like the not so perfect look with my pieces. but you can draw lines etc if ya need the help with it. beaducation.com also has a really good free video tutorial on it! check it out it def helps!

I've ordered bits and pieces off beaducation, however, being in Australia, I didn't want to order the full stamp set due to the cost of postage with that kinda weight.  Not to mention the AUD is horrendous atm.  But thanks for answering my Q's Smiley

Love them!!!  I am becoming such a fun of your work.  First your resin and now this.  Fabulous like always.

I can't even pick my favorite, but that last necklace is mighty nice and how cool of a proposal would that be...a necklace and a ring.   Wink

Keep up the awesome work!

thanks! i thought it might be kinda funny to actually mount it as a ring and then it would be like, marry me in the place of the engagement ring lol. but im not sure many girls would like that although those witha  good sense of humor might!
