So here is the leather bracelet I made my 13-year-old son for Christmas. He's not a jewelry-wearing kind of guy, but he usually wears a watch and this is similar.

I also put these pegasus charms on silver French wires - her first dangly earrings! Not exactly a matching set (or relevant to a metal stamping post!), but she loved it nonetheless.
If you have tips about working with different metals (silver, copper, aluminum, stainless steel) I'd love to hear them!

Another project I've made, wine glass charms...
