A cool choker made from hardware supplies

Take a quick visit to your local hardware store and purchase a couple of pieces of washers or “tingga.” These disk-like thingies are generally used to support or fasten screws. But they’re also used to make “sipa” if covered with  cloth or strips of plastic.
 
Believe it or not, you can also use them to quickly create a fashionable accessory!
 
Washers come in different sizes so feel free to experiment with different designs.

For this specific piece, use five washers in 3 sizes (1 large, 2 medium and 2 small). Keep the  smallest-sized washers on each end, with the largest at the center.
 
If you don’t like your choker to appear too shiny you may distress the washers by beating it with a hammer or by scratching the surface with sandpaper.
 
Offset or balance the edgy hardware with a dainty and brightly colored ribbon.


 
Materials needed:

  • Washers
  • Ribbon, about 1 meter


 
Procedure:

Step 1: Pass one end of ribbon through the under side of the 1st washer. 


 
Step 2: Next, slip ribbon through the 2nd washer. This time, pass it from the front towards the back
