Every girl has a piece of jewelry in her jewelry box that she doesn’t wear because it looks out-dated or old. But, what if you can change it up and make it look vibrant and beautiful again. The monsoon rains inspire me and I must confess, enable me to stay in the comfort of my own home and give me the time to make creative things right out of my closet. I came across a really old bracelet that I have never worn before and made it look beautiful again. Follow these steps to recreate your old jewelry pieces into something more appealing and wearable.
- 4 nails paints – two bright colors, a copper color, a clear shimmer
- An old piece of jewelry
In my case I used a gem bracelet so I colored the alternate gems of the bracelet a different color. If you are using a necklace or earring, paint it according to pattern and shades you desire.
Step 1: I painted a baby pink tone on alternate gems. Step 2: Then used a deep purple shade and painted the remaining gems on the bracelet.Apply one coat and let it dry for a few minutes and then go back and apply two or three coats till you get your desired shade. Make sure the paint covers the base of the jewelry completely.Step 3: After the gems were painted, I used my copper nail paint to color the beads around the gem to give it a rust gold finish.Step 4: To add a glossy spark to the overall look I applied two coats of a shimmer nail paint.
- Avoid using acrylic paints to color accessories as nail paints tend to be fuss free and it doesn’t make a mess since the brush is already available in the bottle.
- When you opt to paint your jewelry piece go for bright colors and not dull ones.
- Opt for a matte nail paint for the base and a glossy coating for the finishing touches.
