This necklace and I were meant to be together. A couple of days ago I made a quick stop at the thrift store and saw this necklace, I wanted to buy it but because there was no price on it so the girl refused to sell it to me. I went back the next day and didn't find it so I thought maybe someone had already purchased it. Last Friday I visited the thrift store again, I was looking at their jewelry when I saw their bundle baggies at the bottom of the glass counter. They usually put unwanted jewelry in bundles and sell it in a bag, much cheaper too. From one of the bags I saw my necklace peeking out and I only paid $3.99. I was thrilled, I came home, gave it a good clean and headed to the store to buy copper paint because it needed a little retouch. I love how it looks now, it's the perfect statement necklace for the Summer. ^_^
It had some rusty parts.
Materials used: copper and bronze color paints and a brush.
The paint dries fast and is permanent. Once it dried I used a nail file to distress it a bit and give it that vintage look.
Total price: About $7 bucks for materials + $3.99 for the necklace = $10.99, not bad!
