DIY stamped metal necklace charm for One Little Word

My one little word for this year is 
CHOOSE!

I made a necklace charm
with my word on it.

To remind me of my goal 
this year to Choose,
I made myself a necklace charm.

It's crazy easy and takes about 5 minutes.
And you only need a few supplies.




Supplies to make a metal stamped
necklace charm:





I put a tiny piece of adhesive on the stamping
block to hold the circle in place.

Then I lined up the metal letter stamp
and tapped it with a lightweight hammer about 
3 times.

Repeat for each letter.

It takes a little bit of practice to 
see how much force to use on the hammer.
If you hit it too hard, it can warp the metal.
If you don't hit it hard enough,
you won't be able to see the letter.

If you want your letters to be in a line, 
you can put a piece of washi tape on
the circle as a guide.

I slid the charm onto a split ring*.
I like split rings better than jump rings.

Then I was able to slide
the charm onto a necklace that I already had.

I love this reminder of my
goal to choose my thoughts,
choose my actions,
choose how I spend my time,
choose who I associate with
and follow on social media,
and choose to let things go that I cannot control!
