Constellation Stamped Pendant

I remember as a child looking up at the night sky and feeling so small and overwhelmed. Soon, however, my dad started teaching me about the patterns these stars made and I found comfort from looking up and seeing these designs in the sky. This star stamp was the perfect way to imprint one of these constellations into a piece of jewelry so that I can carry this memory wherever I go. You can commemorate any constellation of your choosing, or you can just stamp a pleasing assortment of stars onto the copper blank.

Make sure not to move the stamp or your image will not be clear! Repeat until you have the number of stars in the positions you would like.
