it's not that heavy once you get it on...eventually you forget you're wearing it.  i've never had any trouble tying mine due to its heaviness.

A simple coat of clear nail polish on the metal washers should keep them from oxidizing and leaving a mark on your skin.

I made a belt using this tutorial and get a ton of compliments on it.  The not as heavy as you would think, I've worn it over skirts and with jeans with no problems.

Thanks so much for posting the tutorial Smiley

Do you think it would be possible to enamel a color onto these washers? Not just paint, but real enamel that has to be heated/melted in a kiln? Has anyone on here done anything like this before? I've seen enamel on copper, but will it work on brass or whatever other metals they make washers out of?

I like your thinking!  They do make copper washers--auto mechanics use them.

If only I had access to a kiln...
