You will need:
Silver Plated Bangle Bracelets
ImpressArt 1/2″ Circle Stamping Blanks in Silver Plated
, Brass and Copper
Various Charms (get the cast pewter Buddhas from my friend Stan at GreatCraftWorks here and here and the Victorian style hands on Etsy!)

Ergo-Angle Metal Stamping Hammer

Step one: Use a design stamp to stamp a random pattern on the front of your blank. Hold the stamp firmly and strike it hard dead center with the hammer. Make sure the stamp is straight up and down to get a full impression. Step two: Use a cotton swab to add enamel paint to the stamped areas of the blank. Wipe off excess with a paper towel. Step three: Attach the stamped charm to the bangle with a jump ring, make sure you close the ring with tension so it’s secure. Step four: Add other charms, beaded dangles, whatever you like!
