The projects in this section all have one or more discontinued parts. We're checking over the tutorials to see what we want to do about it: find a good sub, re-make the projects, or retire the tutorial.
One major category below is embossed jewelry created with the Vintaj Big Kick or the Sizzix Big Shot Jewelry Studio, as well as leather jewelry created with the Big Shot. Sadly, both machines and most of the dies are out of production, so the simple methods detailed in the embossed metal and leather projects below now require other tools and methods. Depending on the amount of work you want to do, and the budget you have, you can emboss metal with everything from inexpensive styluses or large nails, to $3,000 rolling mills. And, leather can be cut with a basic utility knife and/or a hobby knife -- or other brands of die cutters.
