I´ve been smitten with Tom Binns´ colorful creations for quite some time, but obviously, at 900 dollars a piece they are way out of my price range. Inspired by several beautiful bloggers´ DIY projects, I´ve decided to try and make some colorful jewelry all by myself.
I´ve been collecting costume jewelry for several years, and I have tons and tons of pieces in every shape and color possible. Hovewer, when I go through my collections from time to time, I see items that I´ve grown tired of or that I don´t love anymore (hello, impulsive purchases!). This time, instead of giving them away, I´ve decided to give a few pieces a second chance and revamp them. Here´s how I proceeded:
First on my "to remake" list were these sparkly rhinestone earrings that felt somewhat plain and uninteresting.
I picked up two bright nail polishes (Essie´s Cute as a Button and Fiesta) and started to paint. The inner circle became orange...
... and the outer circle became hot pink (what a surprise!).
I painted two coats of each nail polish and the results were beyond my hopes and expectations.
Say hello to my new favorite pair of earrings! Next on my list: vintage brooch and statement necklace. Stay tuned to see more!
