Crafty star Cheryl Ball of Still Crafty After 50 revamped this metallic flower necklace and added tons of color with a simple technique and supplies she found at the dollar store. She found the all-gold colored necklace at a trendy store in the mall, but didn’t like its lack of color, so she painted the flowers with various colors of nail polish! You can find so many colors of nail polish, whether at the dollar store or in the 99 cent rack at your local drug store. Use this technique to refresh any old costume jewelry that has lost its luster, or to customize just about any junk jewelry that is languishing at the back of your jewelry box.
