Project Instructions

Using masking tape, tape the aluminum ring blank to the steel bench block.

Using the brass mallet and the letter stamps, stamp the aluminum ring blank.

Note: use texture hammer to create texture on the ring blanks as an alternative.

Remove tape and ring blank from the steel bench block.

Dab some acrylic paint onto a paper towel and smear onto the letters on the ring blanks. Wipe off excess paint. Allow paint to dry.

Place ring blank between nylon jaws on pliers to create a slight bend/curve.

Punch a hole ¼" from both ends of the ring blank with the long nose hole punch pliers.

Attach a jump ring to both ends of the ring blank. Cut ribbon and/or leather cording to desired length. Loop the ribbon and/or leather cording through the jump ring and tie a knot to secure.

Insert a bead through a head pin. Using round nose pliers, bend the head pin at a 45° angle. Using the side cutters, trim the edge to about ¼". Using the round nose pliers, make a simple loop to secure the bead. Repeat 2 more times. These will be referred to as “Bead Dangles.”

Attach Bead Dangles from previous step to jump ring. Attach heart charm to jump ring.
