How to Create a Metal Stamped Look with Creative Medium in Silver and Gold

I’ve been pondering puzzle pieces lately—as a craft medium and metaphor for life. Somewhere along the mental stroll, I was reminded of the old Girl Scouts song “Make New Friends” which goes

Make new friends
But keep the old
One as silver
And the other gold

Today’s project was inspired by the way friends fit into our lives like puzzle pieces, the song, and the best friend necklaces I swapped with those close to me back in the day. Metallic silver and gold Creative Mediums and letter stamps were a perfect combination to turn a couple puzzle pieces into jewelry charms.
