Metal Stamping 101
Summer Hours Now In Effect!
From June 29th to September 30th the SMS lapidary shop will be open from 9am to 2pm on Saturday and Sunday to help beat the heat.
This class will teach you the basics of metal stamping. You will come away with a finished pendant or charm that YOU made that will be suitable for jewelry, crafts, gift, etc.
Price includes materials that we will use such as practice metal for stamping, copper stamping blanks, and a set of ear plugs and basic supplies for the duration of the class. It does NOT include any metal stamps!
Alyssa will be loaning her stamp collection (pictured above) for participants to be able to be used for this course.
You are more than welcome to purchase metal stamps of your own for this class if you like! Contact Alyssa at email@example.com if you'd like to know where to buy stamps prior to the class.
Metal stamping equipment will be available for loan for the duration of the class, and in some instances will need to be shared.
Or you can feel free to purchase your own equipment prior to the class (highly recommended) if you so wish - below is what you would need and each item is linked onto Amazon. However you can purchase them from another location if you wish.
