Stamped Sliding Blanks for Leather

These bracelets are fun and exciting to make.  We took one style of rectangle blanks, the large and long rounded rectangle, and stamped individual letters to create a name slider for our leather cuff.  Alternatively, we also tested out a bunch of different blanks and design stamped them to see what sort of awesomeness we could make.  Both styles are very hip and cool.  We found it easiest to work with copper blanks as copper bends easily (silver works great as well).  Definitely limit the gauge to 24 as thicker gauges are a challenge to bend cleanly.
