So I was really happy that my order from Metalliferous showed up today as I'd been looking forward to adding hand-stamped solid bangles to my shop after several customer requests. But I'm a big dummy...I don't have anything to anchor the bangles to before stamping them, and I can't make a good enough impression! I've tried my wooden bracelet mandrel, a soup can, my ring mandrel (obviously too small, but because it's steel that one actually worked the best), the edge of my little bench block...I'm stumped.
Time to go do some research in google-land. I'm guessing the solution will involve forking over money for yet another tool. Booo... and just when I was getting ready to take the plunge and buy a tumbler.
Thank you Andrea and Merry Christmas to all!
