hand stamped jewelry workshop

tuesday i headed to nyc for a hand stamped jewelry class at make workshop. here are some photos from my 2-hour journey. above are the supplies used: stamps, block, hammer, and blanks.
 
here was my first practice piece on scrap metal.

next i crafted a heart for a friend plus a key with her new son's name.

then i crafted "love" into a sterling silver pendant to add to the necklace.

finally i crafted two more pendants mantras "fly" and "be" - two perfect reminders.

i enjoyed tuesday's crafting adventure and may pick up my own typewriter stamp set to continue this creative process. curious? here's an amazing tutorial by happy hour projects and the hollie rouge plus a video by beaducation. any other hand stamping lovers out there?
