I have wanted a hand stamped Mom necklace for a while now but haven't been able to fathom spending the $ people ask. I found stamps for $10 that my Dad is getting for me but my question is, where is the best place to order stamping blank charms? I want sterling and I prefer a matte finish but its not a must. I ave ordered beading supplies from Fire Mountain in the past with success but I know there is more out there!
I already have sterling silver chains and jump rings from when I made some stuff back in 2007. All I want are 2 small to medium sized disks where I'm just stamping their first names (maybe middle) which are both 5 letter names and their birthdays. So I don't need or want anything elaborate. Eventually I want to make DH a bracelet or something too.
also any tips or things I should know? I learned last night that DH has done metal stamping. Apparently last year for his military unit he had to tags about 100 pcs of equipment and all he had at his disposal were hand stamps so at least he has lots of experience.
