Screw Down Hole Punch

Screw down action makes holes without deforming metal!
The screw-down punch has a lot more power than the hand-held plier and can handle heavier gauges.

Patterned Paisley Earrings
These earrings are stamped and dimpled to look like a patterned paisley print. We love how simple it is to make them. We used a total of three design stamps, and our beloved dimple plier . The shape of this blank has such a lovely curve to it that all you have to do is punch a couple holes, and link them together to create this beautiful project. To learn more about creating repetitive patterns on metal, check out this great book, New Directions in Punched Metal Jewelry by our very own Aisha Formaski. She has great tips, and fantastic step by step projects that will soon make you a pro!
