Jewelry Clay and Metal Stampings

 This metal stamping is getting filled with Jewelry Clay.
I have always liked these metal embellishments but find them difficult to incorporate into projects.  The backs are open and a little scratchy, and I usually need to drill a hole through the metal to turn them into something I can dangle.

 It occurred to me that Jewelry Clay could be a big help here!
 Now I fill the back of these metal objects with Jewelry Clay and brush a metallic powder across the surface.
It is much easier to then glue on a bail or insert a wire.
