Sometimes the need for small weigh accessories is very bad and the casting unit is not a good idea , especially when it comes about gold .
Since I was a kid I saw the magic of negative embossing working with copper sheet and – later in my life , when I was a young apprentice – I choose to make negative steel stamps , using the engraving tools . So the old technique of stamping is the best choice .
The results was amazing , and I made some nice money then , making a lot of steel stamps for many of my colleagues then , but I never use any of the stamps for myself .
Now I decide is time to make some steel stamps for my personal use , and all of them will be left to my aprentice , Elena .
This one I’ll show here is a part of some project , called “THE TURN OF A FRIENDLY CARD ” , which will be soon on this blog , on a new page .
An enameled item also , which will be made on silver and gold , too .
The desingn is a little intricate and I need to be every time the same , so cloissone technique isn’t recomended . All you need for doing this is a little talent .
This is the cloissone model :
