And recreate it, I did, for about $5.50.
A series of loops through each washer holds everything together and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't sort of amazed at the ease of this project.
Finally complete! I wore it to work the next day and while I did get a few inquisitive stares, most everyone thought it was pretty slick.
Hot damn, I am one pretty lady with my fancy necklace!
