I love Sherlock!
Everyone knows his address and loves it.
an old house key
Metal stamp letters and numbers.
Sturdy pounding surface & hammer
(and a teenage son is pretty nice too)
Hold in place tightly...this can cause some frustration,
so this craft is not recommended for lightweights.
Then pound the metal stamp with the hammer.
Multiple poundings can cause the stamp to slip, so one hard hit is superior to several hits.
Keys are harder to punch than soft copper blanks...so using washers to practice on is smart.
But they need some depth. So use a sharpie and draw over the lines.
Really press the sharpie deep into the grooves.
This will leave the sharpie deep in the groove.
Next I used ball chains and linked chains that I had on hand.
Then used a jump ring to hook them to the chain with pliers.
This antique copper one is my favorite!
Sherlock fan club!
Dr. Watson would be proud!
Come back every day this week for more Sherlock fun!
