Went to Tokyu hands last weekend to get letter stamps for new necklace design.  I've always loved stamps especially postal stamps on postcards and letters. So, I got to experiment on metal clay with stamps recently.

I'm also inspired by vintage coins, the patinas and the distressed looks on them. They are so fascinating!

Here is how the new necklace turned out. I included latitude and longitude of the locations of fascinating places. This particular one is Paris. I gave it a little distressed look to get the vintage coin feeling.

This is not a finalized piece. Please stay tuned for the completed version of the necklace.
