Engraved Washer Necklace

 So I have this dremel tool and was dying to try it on something. I bought a bunch of washers from Home Depot in hope of making some cool necklaces. So this is my first try at engraving with the dremel. It was a lot harder than I thought and not as pretty as I thought it would be. I used the diamond engraving attachment to engrave on a steel washer. The washer is about 2 inches wide. I decided to engrave it with my daughter's name, Isabel.

 I used cotton yarn and added some glass beads for some color. I was thinking of getting some diamond glaze to make it shinier, but when I showed it to my daughter she said "Awesome!" and took it away. It feels good to have my work appreciated.

Love this necklace. I have been seeing so many washer necklaces. I have got to try one of these.

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Pittypat Paperie. Come again anytime.

So your hubby is designing a "Saints" inspired garage... a man after my own heart, lol. I, too, love the Saints. Be sure and share pics when he is finished with it :o)

I wish I could do that! I've thought many times about trying to engrave. It is the perfect gift.

Diane, I will definitely post pics of the "Saint's Garage" when it's finally finished!

Michelle, I'm still practicing, but I wish I could get it to look fancier.

Thank you both for your comments!!
