Metal Washer Pendants


This past Monday's technique challenge on SCS {click here} was to make a pendant for a necklace out of a metal washer (yes, like from the hardware store!).  I made a key chain pull version for the challenge, which you can see in my SCS gallery, but these, I made today because we were snowed in.  I colored them with my Copics, sanded them lightly just to get some marks in the design, etc.  Then just added the crystal effects on top and waited all stinkin' day for them to dry (by far, the worst part).  There are lots of ways to make these, as you'll see in the gallery at SCS.  Cool, huh?

Ingredients:  Copic Markers, Metal Washers, Crystal Effects.

These are fabulous!!! They really don't look like they were coloured, they look like really gem stones. Cool!

Wonderful way to re-purpose an every day item! These would make terrific teen gifts, to give or receive!!

Neat effect, using the Copics. I'm sure the colors are much more vibrant than the alcohol inks...very nice!

Cool! Can't wait to go get some washers and try this! The things we crafters can dream up to do.

Oh my gosh I just found your blog, and what a super idea, the washers make a cute gift, not just for my grand daughters but for me too!!

Hi these are beautiful, and very close to an idea I have. Do you metal stamp words on them too? if you do what kind of stamps do you recommend.
TY

Copic markers ARE alcohol inks. It's just a different application. One is in a pen and the others are in markers. Just a fun fact. :)
