  • How to stamp a stamped metal bracelet. Let Go Leather Wrapped Stamped Metal Bracelet - Step 1
    Step 1

    When stamping, I sometimes like to mix fonts sizes and styles, which I did on these pendants. I think it adds interest and can highlight special words or meanings. If you are nervous about trying out metal stamping, take a look at my post "Metal Stamping Tips + Tricks". I put together a bunch of how-to photos and alignment tips that walk you through getting started and hopefully boost your confidence to try out metal stamping.

    1. First, cut a piece of leather 3" long. Put 1/2" of the leather through the hole in the pendant, fold it back and then wrap the wire around both pieces of leather. Cut another piece of leather 28-1/2" long and repeat for the other side.

    4. Try on the bracelet by wrapping the leather around your wrist 5 times. Keep in mind the leather will stretch over time, so go for a tight fit. Add a dab of E6000 to the longer end of the leather, then attach the loop end of the clasp. Carefully pinch it closed around the leather. Then, use a jump ring to connect the loop to the extender chain. The extender chain makes the bracelet adjustable, and if the leather does stretch you can tighten it.
