Washer Necklaces

I have been seeing a lot of washer jewelry and crafts around lately and wanted to try my hand at them.

All you need are a few washers, a stamp set, beads, ribbon, and a chain and the possibilities are endless!
The first necklace I made was one with my husband's and mine's initials. I had to give the stamping set a few tries before I got the letters to look decent. After stamping the letters I colored in the letters with a sharpie and wiped it off immediately. This way the letters have more definition. A little dab of glue helps the washers stay in place.

The second necklace was a little more girly. I stamped O's around one washer and sharpied it. The second one got wrapped in string and a coat of paint. After pairing them together I glued on a couple of ribbon rosettes.

I have so many more ideas I can't wait to try out with washers!

I've linked these up Here, Here, Here &....Here


  1. Those are so cute! Great job! Love the one with the little flowers on it!

  2. These are beautiful - very nice!

  3. Those are so cute!! I love how you added the rosettes. Are the stamp sets spend-y??

  4. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

  5. Thanks for sharing your great idea. Love the necklaces. Hope to make one soon.

  6. I love the way your necklaces came out. I have the stamps and the washers, but I got a little frustrated with how the letters were turning out. Practice would probably help! :)

  7. Love these beauties. I have some washers that I was given, but they seem heavy. Are yours heavy?

  8. I'm loving these and I recently bought some metal stamps on etsy....learning how to stamp them hard enough so that the letters show up nicely!

  9. Wow these are so pretty! I have a metal stamping set from way back in the day and I should try making one of these. I really like the one that kind of looks like an asymetrical wreath. It's so pretty and unique! They sound pretty easy to make, with a little practice and it doesn't look like you need a lot of tools to make them. Thanks so much for sharing on A Crafty Soiree. I hope to see you again next week!

  10. Really fab idea! I love that you found a way to turn washers into jewelry!

  11. Aren't washer necklaces fun??? Yours turned out great! Thanks for linking up to Thrilling Thursday @ Paisley Passions. Hope to see you again next week! :)
