DIY Day

April 27, 2012

I saw this idea on Pinterest, so I can't take credit, but I have been wanting to make my own crystal teardrop necklace. After a trip to Michael's, mission accomplished!

DIY Day: Crystal Teardrop Necklace

What you need:
crystals (any size)
jewelry making supplies (clasps, wire, etc)
needle nose pliers
nail polish colors of your choice

1. Arrange your crystals in the pattern of your choice (Tip: take a picture so you remember the arrangement)


2. Once you have a pattern, paint lines of nail polish for the color pattern you would like to use


3. Paint only 1 side of the crystals and let dry. Depending on the color you might need a couple coats. Finish with a clear topcoat to prevent scratching


4. Run wire through the stones, twist the ends together and string through a small hoop


5. Arrange on a necklace strand unpainted side facing out. The polish will show through perfectly!


What do you think?
