More washer necklaces!

Hello and happy Tuesday to you!!   Is it cold where you are?   It is coooooold here!!   There is even an ugly rumor that we may get snow today?!!  Yikes!!  Wasn't it just 61 degrees out?! LOL  Oh well!  What can you do?  Bundle up and go with it I guess! :)  Ok, so yesterday I told you I would share the rest of the washer necklaces with you that I made for my swap.  Here they are:

I believe this is the one I showed you yesterday.

Here is another using Season of Style paper.

Also Season of Style paper.

And another!

This one uses Winterfrost.

More Winterfrost!

Seasons of Style again!

I started with a 1 1/4" washer and covered it with Tombow.  I punched a 1 1/4" circle and then a 1/2" circle out of the center.  I adhered the paper circle to the washer and filed off the outside edges.  Then I coated it with Crystal Effects.  While it was still wet I sprinkled it with Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  Once it was completely dry I adhered a jump ring to the back with Crystal Effects and then attached it to the necklace with a second jump ring.

To make the earrings I stamped the smallest square from the Hello Lovely stamp set with VersaMark.  I added Pewter embossing powder and heat embossed it.  Then I cut out 5 more squares the same exact size and glued them one on top of another until I had a solid little stack.  I adhered the embossed image on top and punched a tiny hole.  I added ink to all four sides of the square to make the whole thing look metallic and then added a colored (colored with a Sharpie) rhinestone to the center.  I covered the whole thing with Crystal Effects and waited for them to dry.  Once everything was dried I added them to the necklace and earring hooks and viola....a matching set!

I really enjoyed making the necklaces!!  I do hope to make about a bazillion more!!

Ok, I plan to get lots and lots done today so I better go get started!!  I hope you have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest with more to share! :)
