Stamped Sliding Blanks for Leather

These bracelets are fun and exciting to make. We took our large and long rounded rectangle blanks and stamped individual letters to create a name slider for our leather cuff. Alternatively, we also tested out a bunch of different shapes of blanks and 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, though silver works great as well. Definitely limit the gauge to 24, as thicker gauges are a challenge to bend cleanly.

I followed the instructions in the blog post to make this bracelet for my niece. It turned out great! I am a beginner and was so proud of how this turned out. If I can do it, anyone can!
