Emboss* the round blanks with a squirrel image, or stamp** with a squirrel stamp. Please note, the stamp is smaller than the embossing tool used in this project.
Place the embossed blanks on the rubber block and polish the high points with the reliefing block. Use a EuroTool polishing pad to create a mirror finish.
Attach the finished squirrel charm to the loop of the eye pin. For best way to open and close loops, see Jewelry Basics 101 below.
String the following beads on: 8mm round gemstone bead, brass bead cap, 6mm Swarovski bicone bead, 4mm Swarovski bicone bead, and 3mm brass fluted hogan bead.
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.
