Fun in the Sun

This week I took my craft kit to the garden - such a treat!  Can you guess what these are?


Yes!  That's right!  Earrings!!  Tiny little earrings made with nail polish over the back of the glass!

They look so pretty in real life, and I could not get over how quick they were to make.  Just grab some nail polish, apply a couple of coats to the back of the glass, let it dry, glue on an earstud fitting, and away you go!   I used:

  • our teeny 8mm glass
  • any old nail polish (not sure if quality makes any difference here - mine are all high-street brands and have worked well)
  • e6000 glue (again, I was not sure if this would peel off the nail varnish from the glass, but nope, it's a good secure bond)
  • and our 4mm earstud fittings with pad.
Have a lovely weekend!!
