Make a pair of matching Metal Stamped Newlywed Necklaces for the happy couple with our DIY Stamped Newlywed Charms. These charms feature tiny 1.5mm stamps, which we love because they fit on small blanks with ease. The key is to line them up in order on your table or bench before you start stamping. You can still start in the center and work side to side, but this helps keep things organized as you go along.
