Making simply and quick jewelry

I was asked, to make a tutorial for the advent - calendar in the Paperbraut Forum. I decided for something you can make all over the year not only for christmas.
Go into the cellar into hubby's workroom and look for something like this...
These are flat washers. You can also buy them at the hardware - store. I gave some of them a breeze of saltwater at the summer, to make them rusty.....
..and they are really rusty now (:o)

Here i used the new ones and adhered paper with Glossy Accent from both sides. After drying used sandpaper to smooth the edges. To smooth the inside of the washers, i adhered a peace of sandpaper to a pencil to smooth the hole. Then, gave the washers a good coat of glossy accent from both sides....and you get this..


The pearls are from Thailand...

You can also use nailpolish......



And here a close up







The last one is a work in progress.....and here i used my rusty washers...




Still thinking about ...how to use the gears...
