Take a few simple ingredients - some 3/8" washers from the hardware store, about a yard and a half of ribbon and the only tool you'll need is a safety pin to get something that looks like this...............

a cool little necklace that you can tie around your neck.

I used some Cherry Cobbler seambinding and 21 3/8" zinc washers and instructions that can be found here.

This was a quick project I put together this morning and gave to my daughter who was visiting for the weekend.  It was so good to have her home even though she wasn't feeling that well.  We got a little shopping in yesterday but today I really felt under the weather myself so while she and her dad made a quick visit to Costco, I put this together for her. 

I've also been working on a little secret Valentine's project I'll just tease with that uses some more hardware.


  1. oooh this is fun!! What a great idea! and I have to go to Home Depot today....I may just have to buy some washers! Can't wait to see your other project!!

  2. Oooh!!! Love those washers!!!!!! What a cute and quick idea! Of course, I'm sitting here wondering how well Staz-On will show up on could stamp and spray seal all of those little washers :) Might have to go to the hardware store today :) Can't wait to see your other project!!!! That red wire looks divine!!!!! :)

  3. I'm assuming your daughter is going to be a weight lifter? Isn't that HEAVY?

    The jewelry in the stores that I've seen lately is HIDEOUS. They could use some inspiration and you sure have it going for you!


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
