New inspirations this weekend!

Here I go again, moving onto something new. I've decided to make some pendant designs using everyday hardware. This is the first design I've come up with.
I've also been inspired recently by the natural rustic appearance of vintage metals. Sometimes it's not always easy to find the good old rusted hardware I want so I researched different techniques on aging and purposely rusting metals. 
Yesterday these washers and other bits of hardware were very shiny steel or brass. I forced them to age in 24 hours and this is what they look like now.
The design shown above will be transformed tomorrow when I recreate it using my new but older looking metal findings.
