Metal Stamping Jewelry


So last week I ordered a metal stamping set and some other supplies to go with it. I decided to take a stab at it this past weekend. It was PrEttY FuN!
I wish I got some bigger blanks. I'll have to find some online that are a decent price. Has anyone tried doing this? Where do you buy your supplies?? I usually buy my jewelry supplies from Fire Mountain Gems & Beads website. I bought my stamp set through Etsy.
I am interested in learning more about metal stamping and doing lots more with it. =)
Share your thoughts, comments, & suggestions!

Fallan, I, too, purchased a stamp set, but quite frankly, have been disappointed with the results. It's really hard for me to line the letters up evenly. It's a pain in the neck even trying to find the right letter! Sometimes the metal bends more than I like, and you have to go over it with a marker (hoping it wipes off). Have I complained enough? I've used it on washers that I purchased at the hardware store and on some tin or metal ID tags (like dog collars). Again, just can't get them professional looking. Let me know if you have any tips to make mine look better! Thanks!
