I thought I would try something a little different from my usual jewelry making projects. I like the idea of personalizing jewelry and hand stamping is certainly a way to do that. Sports teams and school pride are very popular in my area, so I thought I would lean toward that theme when choosing what to stamp on the metal blanks. Adding the leather was not in the original plan, but I think it adds another dimension to the style. The design can be personalized with the high school graduation date, letters representing the name of the school, and school colors. Of course other charms, such as school mascot, could be added as well as name or initials of student. Here are some of the first ones I have made.



  1. Love the simple “non-jewelery” materials, esp. the third one. I love me a diamond, but I like this look very much, too!

      Thanks. Jewelry is like clothing…sometimes you want to dress up and other times just dress casually.
