This project isn't actually complete yet, but it appears to be in the pictures, so I'm going to share it now! I found this pin about making a washer necklace. Really cute. I followed the instructions, using a mustard yellow nail polish that I got at the dollar store to paint the washers. Then I connected all the washers with jump rings, in the same configuration as the tutorial. Very proud of my work, I picked up the necklace to find all of the washers folding in on each other and flipping over to reveal the unpainted side. I don't have a picture of the pinstrosity, but it was not cute. So, I took it apart and connected the rings in a long row instead. Not quite the look I was originally going for, but it still turned out to be a fun necklace:
After I wore it, I realized that the washers still tend to flip themselves over, so I'm going to have to take it apart again and paint the backs of the washers. I hope I get to it soon because this was intended to be a fall necklace!
