1. Draw a design
First, you have to paint your design with a pencil. This step is very important because you need to think how to make the whole word in a streamlined form - the line need to continuous, it can be very ingenious, some letters are hard to make cursive!
2. Make a brass prototype
So, you need to make a brass prototype to make sure you got all the curves and connections. This is the stage that needs to rework to look if it is close to the drawing design.
3. Make a version
When you think it is completely correct, you can make a necklace of semi-hard sterling silver 10mm wire. You need to use a semi-hard line instead of a soft one because it provides a brighter line and keeps its shape.
4. Hammer to enhance the hardness
After the shape is formed, gently hammer it to finalize the design and hardness, then add buttons and chains. Finally, a name necklace made by you comes into being.
