Hand Stamped Mandala Disc Bracelet DIY

For this DIY we used the nicer metals, Sterling Silver and Gold Filled. For either bracelet you can have a second disc (as shown in the dapped version). The flat version is backed with dimes but another Sterling Silver disc will work just great as well. This bracelet is a little heavier and is so much fun to wear.

Step-By-Step Instructions
  1. It's a good idea to make sure you have room for your letters, numbers and/or any designs you may be adding to the blank. 

    Even experienced stampers will plan out a design before stamping it out. We have a perfect solution that is both low in cost and very helpful in planning for space, etc. Try our Aluminum Foil Practice Stamp Sheets.

  3. Stamp, darken and polish.

  4. If you are dapping your discs, dap them before punching holes. If you are texturing the edges of your disc, do so before dapping.

  5. Punch through the top disc first, placing your holes as close to the edge as possible (without it ripping through of course). Use a pen to mark the hole placement on the bottom disc, using the hole in the top disc as your guide. Make sure that you don't punch the holes too far into the blank otherwise the jump rings won't be able to "reach" when they connect your links.

  6. Connect all the links with your jump rings. Make sure you are using very strong jump rings. We recommend a thickness of at least 14 gauge.

  7. Add a clasp of your choice with a matching jump ring on the other end and you've got a Stamped Disc Bracelet!
