Experimentation: Metal Stamping



A friend of mine found an old set of letter stamps in his garage. Apparently these were used by sheet metal workers to mark parts for correct assembly. I found this very interesting and exciting because my uncle and late father used to own a sheet metal company and may have done this same thing! This particular set used to belong to my friend's grandfather and is about 50 years old! I'm very grateful he decided to share and I promised to put them to good use.



And here is my first metal stamped charm made into a necklace! I think my daddy would be very proud :)
