Metal Washers Jewelry

It amazes me that simple items found in the hardware store can turn into a bit of crafting fun.

These are simple metal flat washers found at Home Depot. Turning them into something other than their intended purpose was my goal as inspired by a tutorial on the Poppies at Play blog and featured on Mod Podge Rocks.

I did a practice run on this project using origami paper and Mod Podge. After the paper was adhered to the washers and dry, I coated each piece with a sparkly glaze. The bracelet and necklace components were purchased at Jo-Ann’s, but I like Poppies at Play’s execution better.

Resources

I’m citing my resources for my practice project as well as others available for you to learn how to create jewelry out of washers.

Those are so cute, June! In addition to traditional jewelry, they might make really great cell phone jewelry (the little jeweled things that you can hook on your cell phone, which I used to have to help me find my phone in the depths of my purse!). What a terrific idea! :)

It's amazing how a simple washer can be changed to look like a piece of jewelry! I could see them as pins and scarf rings and eyeglass hooks and so on.

So many nice blogs to explore June, thanks for the links!

Have a good weekend!

I don't know how you do it Junie! Another great find -- your jewelry is adorable! I also love the stamped washers and I'm hoping to try that soon!

oh my heavens, that is so creative. I've seen photos of similar looking jewelry and I'll bet that's what they were made of -- and I didn't even know it! June you are so amazing.
