This pressing is designed to use with a transparent hole template to mark and cut out a vignette that can be any size or shape. Suggested round sizes are 7/8", 1", or 1-1/8". Use the vignettes to make earrings, pendants, or bracelets.
(Metal Maven had to explain to her partner that a vignette is a small illustration which fades into a background without a definite border.) :o )
Check out the tutorial under our Inspiration Menu Heading to show you how to use this pattern to make a pair of earrings.

Our patterned sheets come unfinished and might have a slight curve due to the rolling process. They usually also have a slight margin around the edges which is also a result of the rolling process.
