Making Mandala patterns is so relaxing. ImpressArt makes great metal stamp sets so you can create Mandala patterns in your own jewelry. I put the floral Mandala I made with these sweet Tourmaline beads for a sweet Zen look.
Cynthia used ImpressArt metal stamps to create a fun custom pattern for the pendant at the center of this necklace. She paired this unique pendant with tourmaline beads from Dakota Stones. Both the Mandala design on the pendant and the gemstones used bring meaning to this simple and fun necklace. You can see more jewelry made with metal stamping techniques in this Artbeads Cafe episode.
Use the ImpressArt Mandala stamp pack sets to create a pattern on the ImpressArt 31.5mm silver circle stamping blank. For help with metal stamping, please see our Metal Stamping Video Tutorial. Use the ImpressArt enamel marker to darken the patterns you make on the stamping blank, as shown in the video. Punch a hole at the top of the blank and add a sterling silver 6.10mm open jump ring.
Repeat this pattern seven times. Add one more nugget bead and then slide on your stamped Mandala pendant. Make a mirror image of the bead pattern on the other side of the pendant.
Nice choice! All or most of the products needed for this project are shown below with quantities. Sometimes we sell out of components and aren’t able to order more from the manufacturer (we know, it is very disappointing to us, too). Use the opportunity to mix up the design and make it yours by substituting similar products or altering the entire color scheme—it’s up to you!
