Okay, as I said in my previous thread on hardware jewelry, my new kick is using hardware in my jewelry designs - I mean nuts, washers, etc. I was inspired by Hardwear: Jewelry from a Toolbox by Hannah Rogge, but I found the designs too 'basic' for my tastes. So I began to play around.
First was my Nutsy Key Necklace. Now it's chainmaille made with jumprings and washers. Basic European 4-in-1 jewelry weave, only the center rings are washers! It turned out way cool - even my husband, who usually is indifferent to my craftings and jewelry makings ['Hon, I can only see 5 colors, remember?'], said he liked it! It has a cool slinky feeling to it. I would have prefered a toggle clasp, but I didn't have any, so lobster claw it was.
So here it is, the Washer Chainmaille Bracelet:
Here's the somewhat blurry close-up so you can see the weave pattern. Really basic, just like I promised.
What do you all think?
