Earrings and bracelet made from washers and hex nuts

The sun has been doing a great deal of shining in these parts, and I've been eager to soak up the last few rays before winter's icy fingers grab hold of us for the next several months.  Not terribly cheery, I grant you, but name me a New Englander who isn't feeling the same way right now and I will show you someone who is dangerously over-medicated.

In between rounds of frolicking in the great outdoors, I've been working on some creative projects.

Necklace and earrings made from rubber o-rings

Earrings, variations on a theme

Rusted washers, sealed and in various states of dryness, waiting for me to figure out what to do with them

I'm sure there is a way to make the washers rusty, but I have no idea what it is.  I got these washers the old fashioned way: I spied them with my little eye and then picked them up off the street.

You know, maybe the Team Maria President is right and I should have an AuntieCam.

You picked them up off the street? I hope you washed them!

Of COURSE I washed them! Then I sealed them with Mod Podge, so I think they're pretty germ-free. :)
