Turn Washers into Jewelry

Product Details

Materials and Tools:

large washer

origami or other decorative paper

scissors

craft knife

glue stick

diamond glaze

pencil

1 yd. leather cording

large wood bead

leather clasp

flat-nose pliers

Steps:

1. Make a laser-printer copy of the origami or decorative paper. (Only a laser-printed image will work with this project because only a laser image will prevent the colors from bleeding when the diamond glaze is applied.)

2. Place the washer onto the laser-printed paper and position over the desired design area. Trace around the washer. Use a craft knife to cut out the center circle, and then use scissors to cut around the outside edge of the circle.

3. Place the washer smooth side down, and glue the paper to the rough side using a glue stick.

4. Do not shake the diamond glaze (this will create air bubbles). Apply diamond glaze to the top of the washer. Then use a wooden skewer to spread the glaze, being careful to cover the entire surface of the washer. Let dry for 24 hours.

5. Create the necklace: Cut lacing to desired length, (fit around your neck and add 2 inches). Fold in half and feed the folded end through the center of the washer and loop loose ends through the folded end.

6. Feed both ends of the cording through a bead and slide bead down to the washer.

7. Trim ends of the lacing to fit your neck, and then attach a leather jewelry clasp to the ends using flat-nosed pliers.
