One or more parts (or tools) used in this project are no longer available, so we've moved the whole project into the "Misc Jewelry Tutorials with Issues" area while we decide what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make this project, or retire the tutorial.

* BIGkick Notes: The Vintaj / Sizzix BIGkick is no longer in production, but we've kept this project live in our gallery both for the 1000's of people who already own it (or a similar tool), and because there are many other way of texturing metal (metal stamps, texture hammers, rolling mills, etc.), and all the other techniques in this blog & project still apply. Happy texturing & coloring!
