I love making jewelry with washers. When I went to the hardware store to buy my washers I got a lot of looks. I apparently looked very out of place. Some guy asked me if I needed help and he didn't even work there.
Maybe he was hitting on me? LOL. No, probably not.
It took me awhile to locate the washers (no I didn't take the guy up on his offer of help. I wandered around like an idiot for 20 minutes) when I did find them I was so excited!
Not only did they come in silver and in a variety of sizes but they also came in gold. Then I spied the little nuts. And I thought, what the heck, I'll buy those too.
"Washers. To make necklaces," I said like it was the most obvious thing in the world.
