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 with 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.
And more necklace views….

Hey!! What do I know, LOL!! Thanks, Nana.
One of my readers, who is a good friend, has my back. She just told me those are Wing Nuts. Not washer nuts. Wonder where I came up with that. 😀
Anyhoo…. more ideas.
I am having fun with this. Who knows what it will look like when the dust settles.
One of my errands today took me to Home Depot, the hardware store.
Talk about being out of your Comfort Zone!! Do they ever have the customers. I had to dodge wooden planks sticking out of carts everywhere. And those rolling things. That look like a golf cart. You could step up on them and make your way through traffic. Picking up passengers. If you wanted to. All aboard!!
I mean, gosh guys. Leave some space for this little old lady just trying to find the Nuts and Bolts department.
Found it!! Look what I got.
I have lots of ideas. Let’s see where they take me.
