DIY Washer Necklace Tutorial from By Wilma here. The cool thing about this necklace is you use nail polish on one side and then can flip it over for an aged silver look. Tip: you could also use different colors of electrical wire to join the washers - I have whole sets of colorful electrical wire that I use in a ton of ways for different crafts.
