DIY Dainty Neon Crytal Necklace

Friday, 12 April 2013


Like most of you, my tastes have changed over the years. That means I once bought a lot of 'tat'. I try to do less of that now. Whilst sorting out my jewellery boxes, I found this little crystal necklace which is pretty enough but isn't quite me. I've been wanting to do a nail polish crystal necklace project for a while now and I thought this necklace was perfect for it. Here is how I did it:



You will need:
A crystal rhinestone necklace ( you can find really cheap ones for about £1 in charity shops or in the high street sales)
Nail polish of your choice
Cotton buds for tidying up the nail polish
Old newspaper to use as a base
   

Firstly, decide what style you want to go for. Design houses like Anton Heunis, Dannijo,Tom Binns etc can provide plenty of inspiration. High street stores like Zara and H&M are pretty good too. In my case, I chose to bring out the best in the necklace's inherent style. I chose yellow and green pastel/neon shades to bring out the flower and leaf patterns in the necklace. I chose to not colour all the crystals as I like a little sparkle. And that was it! It took about 10 minutes to dry properly and I was ready to play princess :). I love the quick and unexpected transformation of this necklace. What about you? Ann x

  1. Great DIY, I will defs give it a try. Did you remove the stones from their clasps or did you just paint away?

  2. Nope, just painted carefully! As long as your brush isn't too drippy, you are fine. Cotton buds help tidy any leaks. :)
