Yesterday I decided to take up a little mini do-it-yourself project by Kelly from The Glamourai. With some shiny rhinestone whatnots from the old jewelry box, some sharpies, and some Q-tips, you can easily turn your bling bling into something a little more wearable.
Some things I did differently:
- Instead of just using brown and black sharpies (which ended up being a little too pink for my taste), I also used a mustard yellow sharpie to get that antique brown I was going for.
- I also lined all of the sides of the bracelet and prongs with a black sharpie to darken the overall look. I think this was key since the original piece was such a bright silver.
Here I've added the yellow up to where the bracelet splits off into the center piece. You can see how the center is more pinky than the rest:
Here you can see where I've colored in the sides of the bracelet with a black sharpie:
And the finished product:
