washer bracelet- an experiment


*note this is the second post of the day.







I had an idea...
I'd been helping a friend make a necklace from buttons and I'd been looking at some necklaces in The White Stuff and I thought " I bet you could make jewelry out of washers" (like you do)

anyway. I got four sizes of stainless steel washers and some cotton cord and had a play.
I tried it with single washers and it was okay, but just okay and then I had the idea of piling them up. and this I like. I like the feel of it. The way the washers move on each other is very fluid.


It's not the most comfortable bracelet I've ever owned, if I was making it again, I'd probably, have the large washer upside down, so the smoother side was against my skin.

Still, it was a fun experiment.
