I made the washer necklace I posted about!
It was so so simple, quite a perfect weight (you can feel it around your neck but it doesn’t weigh you down), and you just can’t get the amount of visual impact for so cheap anywhere else. I think I spent $3 on a spool of ribbon — which was enough to make many, many more necklaces — and the washers themselves were about 10¢ apiece. Mega-modern jewelry you can make yourself for under $5? Yes.
I used this tutorial, with black satin ribbon and washers in three sizes (I used 3/8”, 1/4”, and 7/16”, I think). What you’re doing, simply, is weaving the ribbon up through from the bottom of one washer, over and through the top of the next, back down through the first washer, and back up through the bottom of the second. (That might not make sense without a picture, but once you look at the tutorial, it’s pretty straightforward.)
Definitely a statement piece. I urge you all to try it.
