Gorgeous, I want the first one. I'd hurt myself soldering so I don't do it.

Stamps are mini-art pieces, they deserve to be used in jewelry

ahhh that is so incredibly AWESOME. ahhh i cant get over it. i love how since you soldered it its all rough on the edges and stuff it makes it look even cooler than if it was just a metal frame! wow i have a whole suummer ahead of me and guess what im going to be doing? (hint: it involves a soldering iron, my stamp collection, and this website)

Those are absolutely gorgeous.
I love the first one. Alot of people (including me) would pay money for those! You should make more & sell them.

Thanks so much for the tutorial!  I saw something like this in a fashion magazine but the manufaturer was charging over $100 a pendant!  Now I can make my own with a stamp of my choice and save the $100! Cheesy

WANT ONE WANT ONE MUST HAVE ONE!!!!!! I'm serious, are you going to be selling those? They are fantasic, I'm really picky about jewelry (not the price, I like quirky but not trashy stuff...'s just me) but I'd TOTALLY use those....ooh, as charms on a charm bracelet, or pinned to my denim jacket amongst my ever-growing collection of groovy pins. or a whole bunch of them hanging along a big kilt-pin or or or....if you do decide to make & sell these, PLEASE pm me, I'm in! Oooh, yes, and you could use the same method with little bits of olde-worlde looking manuscripts, or maps, or poetry books.....

QUESTION: Anyone know of another place online where I could buy a soldering kit at a less expensive rate?

SUGGESTION: I have bought several things like this at craft fairs & feel silly I never found out how to do it myself. Here are some of the charms I have bought from her:
* antique postcard scanned to a tiny postage stamp size
* antique christmas card scanned as above
* piece of china (snipped with tile cutters into shape of a heart)

I just gave the china one to my mom for her birthday on Saturday! The crafters tend to charge $18-30 for the charms and also makeearrings, rings, etc. the china didn't require any glass, naturally..

this is just what i needed!!! i know a girl who does something similar to this and always wanted to try it...the stamp is a neat idea too!!! now i must buy the tools!!!! yet another crafty thing to do on a rainy day!!! thanks so much for the great tute!!!

Thats exactly what my boyfriend said when he saw this...but a little more grumpily. I saw some of these for sale at a local beauty shop for $15.00 each!!!! And they were only attached to a simple ball chain. You should definitly look into selling these!

Thanks for the tute.  I'll have to look into the supplies, see if I can make one for myself. Now I just have to track down a cute goldfish stamp . . .

THOSE ARE THE COOLEST NECKLACES I'VE SEEN IN A LONG TIME!!! EEE!! I've almost totally stopped wearing Jewelry, but I LOVE LOVE those, especially the Goldfish, I'm a goldfish freak. I seriously want to buy it if you want to sell it. PM me with info, also do you have other different goldfish stamps?
totally gorgeous and unique. Is it silver sauter (sp) or nickel? (just wondering if it will turn my skin green)

I swear I have that goldfish stamp somewhere...and others similar. if you want em PM me.

How do you retrieve PMs on here?...I'm new.


P.S if I'm slow to reply (up to a week) it's 'cos I use the internet at the library, so I'll be back on Monday...probably.
