How to Refurbish Old Jewelry Using Seed Beads & Dimensional Magic5:00:00 AM
But then the stone popped out of one of the earrings. I know I could have simply just glued the sucker back in, but since the dark green wasn't really matching much of my clothing any more, I just left the piece to languish in the back of my jewelry box.
But when I received some dimensional magic as a gift this past Christmas, I thought it was the perfect opportunity to refurbish this set. But what should I put into the setting?
Then an old seed bead bracelet of mine broke, and I knew that the little aquamarine beads would be perfect for this project!
So here's what you'll need for this project:
Old jewelry with the stones removed
Mod Podge Dimensional Magic (I used silver, which is kind of glittery, but you could use the clear)
Seed beads in a color (or colors) of your choice
This is super easy! First, sort your beads to get the colors you want.
Place the seed beads into the jewelry base.
Then, slowly tilt the dimensional magic with the lid closed to get the silver glitter into the nozzle (do not shake--that makes bubbles). Then slowly squeeze the dimensional magic onto the beads to fuse the beads to the jewelry bases. If you have any bubbles, pop them with a pin.
Allow to dry for 24 hours...then enjoy your brand new jewelry!
