DIY Madewell-Inspired Necklace

The inspiration for this idea came from a necklace I found at Madewell.  I loved the tribal look of it and, in studying it more closely, I realized it would be simple to create my own version.  Here is their "earth and fire" necklace, which is on sale now here for $19.99 (down from $45):

Here are the materials you'll need: 

* Gold metallic spray paint
* 80 metal washers
* Simple chain necklace
* 5 Black Beads (metal or wood)
To recreate
Step 1: Spray paint the washers gold on both sides (make sure you spray at an angle so you get the edges too) - let dry.
Step 2: Thread one bead onto your necklace, then a group of 20 washers, then another bead, etc...mimicking the pattern above. 
Step 3: Wear it!!
