Directions for Making Glass Gem Jewelry:
1) Clean both sides of clear glass gem. Paint a small design of your choice on the back. Here are a few ideas: a flower, heart, tiny flowers, dots, or a shape!
2) Allow to completely dry. It only takes about 10-15 minutes. Once the design is dry, cover the entire back of the glass gem with a different color polish. When finished, the “design” will be covered by the background color.
4) The E6000 will be dry within an hour or so. Check first before wearing! E6000 is a great adhesive that will hold securely and is flexible even once it dries.
We love this craft idea!!! It is perfect for groups and parties! Plus, what girl doesn’t have some extra nail polish laying around??? Creativity is endless for this craft! For your next girl party, paint some glass gems instead of nails! These make such a great gift too!!!
More Ideas: Small Clear Glass Gems or Glass Gems with Hooks can also be painted! For Small Glass Gems only a Tie Tack or Jewelry Bail will work.
