From The Nuts and Bolts Department

Just finished this necklace using wing nuts, washers and chain links. All from the Hardware Store. Added resin purple beads, round silver spacer beads and different sizes of black glass beads.

Without chain links…

And I made two pairs of earrings using smaller wing nuts. They look really heavy, right? But they aren’t. I tried them on. I did use a different type of ear wires, different than what I normally use. I thought the design required something a bit stronger. This works well.
