metal stamped "mom" silver necklace

Step 1
Use chain nose and round nose pliers from the tool set to remove jump ring from disc. Set jump ring aside.
 
TIP: To open and close a jump ring, simply grasp the jump ring on both sides with pliers and twist the ring open side-to-side. Never pull the jump ring, which can cause distortion.
Step 2
Place the disc onto your steel block and tape the blank down with tape. Apply the tape where you want to stamp. The tape will act as a guide to help you to stamp straight.
 
TIP: Be sure the hole remains at the top center of the charm when stamping.
Step 3
Align a letter stamp where desired on the disc and strike the top of the stamp one or two times with a brass mallet. Repeat for remaining letter(s).
 
TIP: For best results, try to hit the stamp in the center of the brass mallet for an even imprint.
Step 4
Apply a thin coat of black enamel on top of the letter imprint. Wipe excess enamel away with a paper towel. 
Step 5
Use chain nose and round nose pliers to thread the jump ring back through the hole at the top of the disc charm. Add a pearl drop charm and close jump ring. 
Step 6
Thread chain through jump ring and arrange the disc charm to fall into place in the center of the chain, opposite the clasp.
