* “enamel” necklace

Posted on June 9th, 2011 by maitreya. Filed under Jewelry.


Dismount Creative posted this great idea for using nail polish to make faux enamel jewelry.  I couldn’t find any of the metal blanks she used, but the bead store did have these rimmed ones.

And this interesting faceted charm.

At this point, I was hooked and started looking around the house for more things to paint.  Buttons!

I also attempted to paint a “spangle” (giant sequin-type thing), but it looked awful.

Alisha Louise, I am not, but still, pretty good for nail polish and 50 cent jewelry findings.

    They all turned out great!!! It’s amazing what a little nail polish can do :)
    I need to start searching my drawers for some old jewelry to paint now!
