This simple necklace can be made formal or casual and in any color.


  • metal washer

  6. Adhere a coordinating paper to the other side of the washer.
  7. Allow to dry, then trim away the extra paper as before.
  8. Apply the Modge Podge Dimensional Magic, the same as before, and allow to dry for at least 3 hours.
  9. Determine how long you want the necklace to be and cut the cording. Fold the cording in half, put the loop through the center of the washer and then bring the ends through the loop. Now put the ends through the center of the washer.
  10. Use a lighter to melt the ends of the cording, to prevent fraying. Then add beads and knot the ends.
  11. Enjoy your new jewelry!
