Quarterly Impression Dies: Available for 3 month periods starting on the first day of each quarter (January 1st, April 1st, July 1st, and October 1st). Many of these are original, hand-carved hubs we're using to make your impression dies, and they may break. If a hub breaks, it will no longer be available.
Impression Dies are used to create a fully three dimensional piece of jewelry. These dies will give you amazing detail using flat sheet or small ingots of metal. They are best used with urethane, paper, or an aluminum force that pushes the sheet into the die. Please check out the videos on our YouTube channel to learn all about impression dies!

9/16" x 1/2" Sample jewelry made by Jolé Danae Moon. NOTE: We had to make a copy of the original hub, and by the nature of the reproduction process, the front lip of the mushroom does not have as much texture as the original hub. This is an artifact of the process and is not considered a defect. NOTE: Because of the front lip of the mushroom, your metal may stick in the die more than others. Always leave a small lip around the impression to assist when removing your metal. For best results, lightly oil the impression die to make removing your metal easier.
