DIRECTIONS:

Practice stamping before beginning project.
1. Tape one of the blanks to the stamping block. Tape should be slightly below center.
2. Hold the star stamp at the center point of the blank with the printed side of the stamp facing you. Use the pierced hole as a guideline.
3. Hold stamp flush to the top of the blank in full contact before striking. Keep fingers down towards the bottom of the stamp. The printed side of the stamp faces you.
4. Give the stamp one good strike dead center.
5. The word “W I S H” is stamped around the bottom curve of the stamping blank. Leave the bottom center blank. Plan the placement of letters so the spaces are even & the stamps are angled to fit the curve as shown. Move the bench block while stamping to help with placement.
6. Start with the letter “I” just left of center. Move over to stamp the letter “S” just right of center. Finish with the letters “W” on the left & “H” on the right.
7. Use a cotton swab to apply paint into stamped areas of the blank. Allow to sit for 30 seconds. Wipe off excess with a paper towel.
8. Repeat steps 1-7 for second earring.
9. Make two coiled dangles using headpins & beads. Slide bead onto headpin. Grasp top of bead with round-nose pliers & bend wire to a 90º angle.
10. Pull wire up over pliers & down around the top jaw to form a loop.
11. Move pliers 1/2 turn. Finish the loop.
12. Grasp end of wire with chain-nose pliers. Wrap tightly around the headpin, working down to top of bead. Trim excess wire. Tuck tail under with chain-nose pliers. Repeat.
13. Open ear wire loop with chain-nose pliers. Slide coiled bead & stamped blank on loop. Secure closed. Repeat.
