More DIY Washer Jewelry

With my first craft show coming up, I have been putting together some new washer jewelry (see this post, this one, and this one for previous pieces).  Inspired by several pieces I’ve pinned on my Jewelry Ideas Board and a few ideas I’ve done in the past, here are some of the things I’ve been working on....


To make this one, you need:
chain (a comfortable length for your neck)
lots of colored buttons (different sizes)
a few washers (different sizes)
jump rings (large and small)
DSCN9720
I also made matching button & washer earrings.  Fun, right?


This set was an experiment using small washers, jump rings, and jewelry twine:DSCN9730I also did another stamped keychain…thought it would make a cute gift for a Dad.  You'll need the clip, a split ring, and your choice of washers:DSCN9735This is the Rosette Necklace I posted about a few weeks ago…I’m planning to make more for the Craft Show:DSCN9738Each of these washers is stamped…Faith…Hope…Love and is made using washers, jump rings, and black cord:DSCN9741
DSCN9743This one hangs on a ball chain and simply says “Love” on the copper washer and includes a small heart charm:DSCN9748
DSCN9758Another version of the “Love” theme:DSCN9765
I have also been working on some of those cute thread-wrapped washers!  I’ve done a couple and I really like them…pics coming soon!

Let me know if you make any of these...I'd love to see how they turn out!
