Refashioned Spike Bracelet

DIY Refashioned Spike Bracelet Trick

Whilst I love making costume jewellery; I don’t love the inevitable wear and tear. Unfortunately, pieces get discoloured and/or scratched and sometimes it’s beyond repair….or so I thought! Turns out, there is an incredibly simple and affordable DIY trick that might just help you save your cheaper trinkets. Nail polish comes to the rescue again!

DIY Refashioning Trick

I made this Silver Spike Bracelet over a year ago and because I pretty much wore it every single day, the silver was so scratched, it was almost completely gone on certain spikes. Not to worry, I laid down a sheet of paper and painted two coats of my current fave dark silver polish on the spikes. Left to dry and hey presto, the bracelet is as good as new.

**For those that don’t want to have to re-paint their jewellery and didn’t know this trick already – paint your new costume jewellery with clear nail polish and the colouring will last longer.
