Even though I work in fine jewelry, my own tastes tend to be more flashy. I like costume jewelry. I like it a lot. The bigger and weirder, the better. I bought this plain necklace a few years ago at a yard sale and have gotten very little wear out of it. It was just a little too cheap looking. I decided to paint the tips of each piece for some extra pop. It came out really well, and it’s a lot more of a statement necklace now.
Here’s the original necklace.
Then, I taped off the parts I didn’t want to paint using painter’s tape, leaving the parts to be painted exposed.
I love the graphic look, I’m so excited to wear it!
