DIY – Washer necklace

DIY - Washer necklace

I love to make something out of an unsuspected material. It’s so much more fun then just buy beads and make a necklace. Today I’m going to show you how to make a necklace out of washers. Do they sell pink washers? You may ask. Well no, but they do sell pink nail polish!

Learn how to make this washer necklace with step by step pictures after the jump. . . 

What you need for this DIY washer necklace

- pliers
- ten washers with 10 mm holes
- twelve 10 mm jump rings
- chain (I used an old necklace)
- nailpolish

How to create this fabulous DIY washer necklace

1. Lay down your materials.
2. Use the nail polish to give the washers the color you want. Let dry.
3. Attach the washers with the jump rings like shown in the picture.
4. Attach the washers to the chain. If your chain is fine, like mine, you may need a smaller jump ring between the bigger one and the chain. If your nail polish has cracked somewhere you can now fix it with some extra nail polish. Your necklace is ready to wear.
5. You could also wear this necklace with the metal side on the front. This way you will have two necklaces for the price of one! XO Wilma

    Love this. Have to make sure to use a good solid nailpolish or else it looks all streaky. My mother is going to love hers! Thanks for the idea!

    Did you have to cut the chain to attach the washers in the middle? Just trying to get the directions right before I try. Thanks!

      Oh I see I wasn’t really clear on that one, thank you! It’s 10 mm holes… I just changed it in the tutorial!

          You buy them normally with the inside size in mind, so the 10 mm is the size that’s on the box. I’m afraid I’m not really organised so I have no idea where I left the necklace.. I’m sorry measuring is not possible because of that. I think its around 18 mm to 20 mm in total?

    2 questions for you if it’s allright. Could it be just me or does it give the impression like a few of these responses come across as if they are left by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on additional sites, I would like to follow everything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of the complete urls of your public sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
