Glittered Washer Necklaces with Crystal Shamrocks

Shamrock Washer Necklace
I always post about my big painting projects on walls, ceilings, trim and furniture. But I like to paint many other things as well. I have a hard time reeling it in and often have many projects in process. I find painting washer necklaces soothing and much less labor intensive. I had made some cute ones for Valentine's Day and a friend wore hers to her school and everyone was asking about them.
"Can you make some for St. Patty's Day?" she said. Of course! So I primed some washers of varying sizes and painted them green. Added some gorgeous, green glitter paint and gloss sealer. Always both sides. Added some crystals for the shamrocks and a small piece of jewelry wire for the stem and a black satin cord and they are done! I made them in two sizes and some cute washer earring to coordinate. I made a 2" washer necklace that has 3 small shamrocks. And I made a smaller 1.25" washer necklace that has one small shamrock. The washer earrings have 3 small crystals on each. So if you are feeling festive and wanting some green for St. Patrick's Day to avoid getting pinched, you should head on over to my Etsy store and get yourself one of these. What silly craft do you like to create just for fun?

    1. Thanks Mel! I would love to spend more time creating them but furniture calls! I picked a bad time in life to start making jewelry as my close up vision gets worse daily! :)
      Have a great week! Can't wait to see yours!
