Make a Necklace from Lock Washers & Toys

Before: toys and lock washers
I am not sure what type of toys these are; my daughter thinks that they belonged to one of her brothers. She thinks they were used to build action figures that were "like tranformers but not transformers." 

After: Necklace by GeltDesigns.com
Whatever they were, we both thought they were interesting to look at and the hole made them prefect to use as beads. We used lock washers as spacer beads and strung them simply on 2 mm satin. OK, not the most innovative project we've done this year... but it was quick, easy and made a  cheerful, fun accessory.

4 lock washers
2 toys
2mm satin cord & findings
