Design Stamps are a bit tricky. I highly recommend you practice on some cheap metal before diving into your Sterling Silver or Gold Filled. Click here to purchase a piece of copper sheet for practicing.
For best results with Design Stamps, make sure there is NO padding under your Bench Block, make sure you are working on a stable table, and use a hammer which weighs at least 16 ounces. We recommed a Brass Head Mallet. Feel free to hit the stamp more than once, but hold the stamp steady, making sure you don't shift at all between hits. The more confident you are with the hammer and the strength behind it, the better your impression will be.

Works well for certain applications.
This is a great border stamp and also makes a pretty frame when combined with other stamps. Pretty to frame an initial or cute stamp for a pendant. I made a very nice initial ring with this stamp. Beaducation has the BEST stamps!
love this border stamp. i used it as frame around intial and made a pretty pendant. this stamp works well with heavier hammer.
