Pretty Painted Pendants

If everyone knew only one thing about me, they would either know that I  
        
         1.  Love to do craft projects, or 
         2.  I am addicted to nail polish.

Well, I have decided to combine the two!  Ha!  I am currently involved in a craft exchange with a woman that claims to love jewelry and bright colours, so I decided I wanted to play around a little bit. The Tucson Gem and Mineral Show is currently underway, and I decided to pick up a few pendant trays and glass cabochons.  After swirling around some nail polish in the glass tray, I ended up with this piece:
Sinful Colors- What's Your Name
Sally Hansen Complete Manicure- Grass Slipper
Finger Paints- Comet's Collar


Of course, when it comes to craft projects, one is never enough, so I made another one right away. This one was a little more difficult as I really want to get a rock-like effect, and I actually painted the glass cabochon instead of the tray.  I love both of these pieces, but I am extremely proud of this one due to the complexity.

Orly- Ever Burgundy
Maybelline- Succulent
Revlon- Totally Toffee
Zoya- Marcella


I was eager to show off my work to my mother-in-law and the sister-in-laws, and the sisters have already asked for one!  Yay!  I'm so excited to be making some more already.  :D

  2. Thank you! I'm having fun making them, although trying to take a picture isn't as easy as I hoped.


    I rescued my dog this past summer, and I feel like he has been around forever! I don't know what I'd do without him!
