Hello all! I’m Trish from CraftyMoods. I absolutely love any and everything DIY and crafty. I love spending time doing crafts with my kids and also for myself and my home. I am happy to share something once a month with you here on Or So She Says as your craft contributor. I have lots of unique out of the box crafts that I just cannot wait to show you.
This weekend I spent some time doing some mommy crafts for myself and decided to play dress up with my own jewelry. I also wanted to share my trick for saving all those amazing but faded jewelry that I just could not part with.
- Faded Jewelry
- Gold Leaf or Gold Flakes
- Gold Leaf Adhesive or Mod Podge Glossy
- 2 Paint Brushes
Although you cannot see it in the photo below, the earrings are spotty and faded in some areas. Believe me I wear them anyway! They fit my face perfectly and I never want to part with them…They go well with every outfit—-dresses, shorts, jeans and even swimwear
These are my tools. The smaller brush is what I used for applying the adhesive. The bigger one is to remove the extra flakes.
A close up of all the layers and different colors. After all the extra flakes are off and it is completely dry, you can add another coat of the Mod Podge Gloss to coat and seal it. This will make them last forever.
