The term “metal etching” refers to the creation of a design on the surface of metal by removing some of the metal. Most metals are etched by using “ferric chloride”. Some of the “resist” used in Etching are Rubber Stamps, a Sharpie Permanent Marker, Press-n-Peel Transfer Film, and Duct Tape, just to name a few.
Choose the perfect design from stamps or you might want to use your artistic touch, add some color, a swarovski crystal or two, a whole lot of etching, sprinkle in some fun and you have a delightful pair of earrings and a bracelet.
