metal stamped initial rosary necklace

Step 1
Cut a short length of tape and tape down a gold-tone circle blank onto a steel block. Place the tape along the edge of the circle. 
Step 2
Align a letter stamp in the center of the circle blank and strike the top of the letter stamp one or two times with a brass mallet.
 
TIP: For best results, try to hit the letter stamp in the center of the brass mallet for an even imprint.
Step 3
Apply a thin coat of black enamel on top of the letter imprint. Wipe excess enamel away with a paper towel. 
Step 4
Find the bead link at the center of the rosary necklace and cut this link out of the necklace. 
Step 5
Open a gold-tone jump ring and attach to the center of the necklace, replacing the bead link cut out in Step 6.
 
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with chain nose pliers and twist the ring open, side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring, which can cause distortion.
Step 6
Open the jump ring on the stamped circle, slide on a crystal drop and then attach the gold-tone jump ring at the center of the necklace.
