We had a lunch date at Lowe's this week to pick through their wide variety of washers - of the metal disk kind, not the clothes washing sort.
We were a sight to see - kneeling on the floor, laying out patterns with washers, in heels and skirts.
Our inspiration came from this project pinned on Pinterest, courtesy of wherethelovelythingsare.com.
I added a jump ring to the last washer on each side. No special process there. I just wove it into the threads as I was wrapping.
I added my chain and a lobster clasp and it was done! I love the sheen of the thread. I don't think you would ever know that basic washers were underneath it all.
Aren't we lucky to live in such creative times? I love the handmade movement. It's such a great way to express your own perspective and to give someone something really special.
On an unrelated subject, I have exciting news to share! We're moving into our new house next week! It has been exactly one year since I saw my belongings. To be honest, I haven't really missed a thing - except my serger.
I'll have to share some pics of the finished house. Talk about one massive, exhausting, creative project! I'm so glad it's nearly done. Please say a prayer for me that the move goes smoothly.
Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great week!
