pink beads (400x400)The other day I found an old necklace in the bottom of my jewelry drawer.  I was going to throw it away and then I realized I could reuse it.  It was a medium length necklace with large chunky fake gems dangling from it in a chandelier fashion.  The only issue was they were plastic and hot pink.  Not exactly the first thing that comes to my mind when I say a statement necklace.  Everything about it was great except the color of the gems.  So instead of throwing it out, I decided to DIY it.  I picked out two nail polish colors, one a slightly opaque white and a champagne color.  I then went through and painted each gem.  Some I made pale pink with the white, and others I did champagne.  On the ones I wanted pink I did two coats of the opaque white, and the ones I wanted champagne I used a thick white for a base and then did a second coat with the champagne color.  I sealed them all off with a top coat and cleaned up the edges with nail polish remover, and I now have a brand new necklace!
