I've got some dapping tools dome block and new metal stamps lots of ideas, its sometimes knowing where to start as there is so much i wish to do.
I feel like a need a gap year to get it all done. So, i am planning some cuff rings in sterling silver and copper with stamped designs on next and one of my next projects will be to make some big hammered sterling silver hoop earrings or copper depending on what i have to hand at home.
I LOVE NEW IDEAS

Whipped up these urban copper rectangle earrings yesterday.
Bit different and i am beginning to use my stamping tools more and more in my jewellery designs. I love it.
These are cut, shaped, filed,sanded and spiral stamped and oxidised with liver of sulphur.
I have gone a bit mad and ordered doming and dapping tools and various other items which i shall be using next year.

I have been experimenting with copper more and my metal stamps this week. I had some left over abalone and pearl beads and made this bracelet up and handcut 6 copper tags 3 hammered and 3 stamped with bee,dragonfly and butterfly to give a rustic look i also oxidised the copper so its not as orangey but have left the rounded copper beads unoxidised for contract.
I have created some customized copper hearts metal stamped and hammered with family names for a christmas tree.
I think they will look great on trees with rustic look. Ribbon colour can be changed on request.
This particular set is for my neice and i have stamped baby feet on Isaac heart as this is her baby's first christmas.
Available in our Folksy shop

Christmas metal stamped gift, a set on Flickr.
I have been busy this morning creating these whimsical and unusual copper stamped christmas baubles.
I used some blank tags i had, drew up some christmas designs and stamped, hammered and oxidised them and used white ribbon for christmas peace.
If these do not sell i will be adding them to my own tree. I love them myself.
I am tempted to order a batch of 50 copper circles now and make up loads for my own tree all with different things on.
