My friend Amber bought stamped metal tags embossed with her sons’ names and dangles with crystals in birthstone colors from ‘dog tag’ chain in sterling silver. I fell in love with it and invested in the letter sets to make my own! In this class you’ll make your own tags with kids names or words of inspiration using your choice of 4 styles of lettering pounded into sterling tags. They make modern keepsakes for your friends and family!

Tips and techniques for working with this inexpensive material and translating the technique to copper or silver will be shared. Please bring a bead of your choice with a hole large enough to accommodate 16g wire. If time permits, additional pieces may be soldered. Instructor will supply the wire, solder, flux, torch, fire block and solder tool.
