Two necklaces inspired by Supernatural. If you've never seen it well it's a show about two brothers(very hot brothers) Dean and Sam, fighting supernatural things (ghosts, demons, vampires, etc). Dean and Sam often come up against ghosts and evil spirits and the way to get rid of them is so salt and burn the beings remains.





I recently graduated from Auburn University, and wanted something to commemorate it. But I didn't like the school rings and a pendent I found I liked was out of my price range so I decided to make my own.


Thanks for looking! They're my first stamped pieces other then just practicing on some washers.

I don't watch Supernatural, but I read enough Urban Fantasy to know those necklaces would come in handy in so many situations. I believe I'll need to make myself one!

Could you provide some more information on how you do the stamping/darkening? I've wanted to learn how to do it, but never quite find the right tutorial. What materials do you use? Would you mind sharing where you got your tools and the estimated price?

Thanks for the nice comments guys!

lvl0rg4n this has to be one of the easiest and funnest techniques I've done, it's rather relaxing whacking things with a hammer. I can't find the tute I read (it was about making a washer necklace for fathers day) but it's so easy you really don't need one.

I bought my stamps online from harbor freight tools, they were the cheapest I found,they were on sale for $5. The stamps are just a basic alphabet and there are much fancier ones out there but I didn't want to spend a lot on tools initially. The metal discs are just from a pack I got from Hobby Lobby for a few bucks, you can really use just about anything though I bought some washers and pounded away at those too. I tried both a regular and a heavy duty hammer, the only difference is with the regular hammer you have to wack it a few more times. I used a sharpie marker to darken the stamped area. The hammer and marker I had on hand so I'm not sure how much they are.

How to wise gather your supplies (stamps, hammer, sharpie, metal discs) and go to a concrete area. This is crucial ingredient, I tried it on my desk at first and the some of the stamps didn't come out clearly. Select your stamps, place it on your disc and give it a few wacks with the hammer I think I did 3 or 4 with the regular hammer but if you have a  heavy hammer you can do less. Grab your sharpie and color in your stamped area, wipe off excess ink with a rag and repeat it until it's dark enough. If your discs got a little warped while stamping just turn them over and give them a good wack with the hammer to straighten them out. And you're done!

These are amazing Cheesy I love the supernatural one, haven't really watched the series because I don't know when it's on and because I have WAY to many other things I have to do, but once I'll pull a Supernatural marathon Cheesy
And what a great idea to make your own school pendant.

Just curious, if I should try this kind of stamping, what materials and tools do I need?

Thank you for the complements guys!

Juliana13 I about 90% positive that I found them at Jo-anns, if not then at Hobby Lobby.

Juliana13 ~ Sorry have you checked out etsy for suppliers, there are a lot of good sellers.

For the U.S. folks who have expressed interest, I was at Michaels yesterday and they had a lot of new stuff for stamping and metal work, but go armed with coupons because they are expensive without. (Average prices are ~$20)
