>Washer Necklace

>Ready for another hand-made Christmas gift? How about this necklace:

I originally found the idea for this necklace at Oopsey Daisy, which directed me to this tutorial at Blue Cricket Design. You know what I say? Why re-create the wheel if someone’s done a beautiful job of writing a tutorial on making that wheel 🙂

All you need for this project is some washers (I bought mine at ReStore – only 25 cents for 20!) but I also bought some more to have in “stock” from Home Depot. I first made it with a simple single ribbon to get the pattern down, but once I felt confident, I ripped them all out and tried a “double ribbon” technique. It was a little more frustrating, but nothing you can’t handle 🙂

So, this necklace went to my sister for Christmas, who has a love for funky necklaces. I think she liked it 🙂
Let me know your thoughts, or let me know if you end up making your own! They’re really cute, and I see myself making some more in the near future 🙂
