Metal Washer

About this design:

I raided my husbands work bench and stole the center piece for my necklace. It is actuially a huge washer that I did some pounding on give it a textured look and a slightly domed feel to it) I went to Home Depot for the bail (it is a copper bracket to hold a pipe against a wall) a little more pounding, riveting and wiring and voile!

    One would never know your secret source for the materials in this fabulous pendant! All your hammering, riveting, and tinkering were worth it.

    What a cool idea. I’ve used washers before, but didn’t think about the brackets. You really ‘nailed’ this piece! Love it!
