We made another lot of washer necklaces on the weekend. Someone out there asked for a little how-to, so here goes...
Metal washers from hardware store (they come in different sizes, choose what you like-mine were 1.5 inches across)
Glossy Accents (what I used) or Diamond Glaze)
Black cording or ribbon
7. *Do this step in a location where you can leave your washers to set for at least a couple of hours without being disturbed. Using the Glossy Accents, lightly squeeze the bottle and release the liquid along the edge of the paper circle. Then, fill in the rest, making sure all the paper is covered. If there are any bubbles, pop them gently with the tip on the bottle. Be careful not to over-apply or the Glossy Accents will run off the washer and make a big mess.
How long your washer takes to set will depend on the heat and humidity in your home along with the thickness of your application of Glossy Accents.
9. When your washer is hard and dry to the touch, the pendants are done. At this point, you can add beads, charms etc to the cording before you loop it through the pendant. You could add clasps to the ends of the cording if you want, but we kept it simple so that the wearer of the pendant can tie it to the length she likes.
