A few weeks ago I had some silver clay leftover from a project and decided to make some primitive charms. I cut the freeform shapes with an exacto knife so they would not be consistent. Some of my stamps are better suited for clay than they are for sheet metal stamping so I experimented with them in the soft clay. Then I needed a way to treat the edges of the charms and add interest at the same time. An ordinary salad fork was the perfect edge crimper.
These rustic primitive Sterling silver charms should be great with tribal bracelets or necklaces.
