This gold-drenched DIY crystal necklace was made with a bottle of gold nail polish that I already had on hand, and one of Darice’s Delicately Yours necklace sets. Super simple, this DIY project takes just minutes to complete!
Gold-Drenched DIY Crystal Necklace Supplies:
- Darice Delicately Yours Necklaces – (I used the Rhinestone Bar and Quartz Necklace).
- Gold Nail Polish (Or any color of your choice).
To create your own DIY crystal necklace piece you will be customizing one of the Darice Delicately Yours Necklaces with just a few strokes of nail polish, in any color you choose. For this quartz crystal necklace, I chose to use a coordinating gold nail polish. The possibilities are endless though, you can create a number of unique looks using any of these jewelry pieces with your favorite color of polish. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your DIY crystal necklace!
Step 1. You will leave the necklaces on the card while you paint them with nail polish. Decide how you want your necklace to look. Will the polish be even across all of the crystals? Or you can vary the level of the gold paint on each crystal. You will want to keep the polish uniform across the crystals for a gold-dipped look like I achieved. Let the first coat of nail polish dry, then add additional coats until you get the desired look you want.
You now have a completely one of a kind DIY crystal necklace that only you could have made! This pretty jewelry piece would look good worn alone or layered with other varying lengths of necklaces. This easy jewelry project would also make a great gift for a friend or loved one. Are you Interested in more nail polish jewelry ideas? Give this nail polish enameled DIY key necklace a try!
