Washer necklaces

If you haven’t already seen this tutorial, you really should check it out. I bought the stamps from Harbor Freight a while back and finally got around to attempting this.

(Tangent: The first set I bought — on sale, under $4 — had no M’s and 2 P’s. And they were sold out everywhere in the Greater Salt Lake area. Darn Mormons. They finally got more in and I exchanged them. The N and S and a few other letters got flattened and were not useable by the time we finished our project. Worth $4? Yes, but if you’re doing this project with a large group you may want to buy more than one set or find better stamps.)

Macy’s class is having a “class store” to help them use the money counting skills they’ve been practicing in math. She and a friend decided that instead of, you know, selling Dum Dums or something that they wanted to make pillows. Thankfully they got over that and decided to make washer necklaces instead. The girls and us moms spent yesterday afternoon mass producing on behalf of M&M Washer World. The pay wasn’t great, but the memories were priceless. :o)

We attached the jewels with Aleene’s Jewelry & Metal Glue.

Next up? Some of these and these.

    Those are awesome! Good idea using washers, I'll have to try that next time I need to make a bunch without spending too much money. (Like when I did an activity for my sister's achievement days group.) Did you like the Harbor Freight stamp set OK? I tried one from there and it didn't stamp very well.

  3. Love the idea of using the washer. I just started making hand stamped jewelry for my friend as a new baby gift and posted it to my Etsy store. I found that you HAVE to use at least a 16 oz. hammer and strike hard a few times. I bought my stamps at Evies Tool Emporium on Etsy for $19 and they are a solid quality stamp. Were there any specific weight of washers you used?
