Refinishing Tarnished & Faded Costume Jewelery!

Hate the thought of your favorite costume jewelry fading so fast?  I have to say that I had this pair of hoop earrings for years and was surprised at how long they lasted without fading. I bought them at EXPRESS and though they are great (non-gold) quality, they fade eventually. I have a few pieces of jewelry that I have covered in Gold Leaf sheets or flakes and they look amazing!

Things you will need:
  1. Faded Jewelry
  2. Gold Leaf or Gold Flakes
  3. Gold Leaf Adhesive or Mod Podge Glossy
  4. 2 Paint Brushes
Although you cannot see it in the photo below, the earrings are spotty and faded in some areas. Believe me I wear them anyway! They fit my face perfectly and I never want to part with them...They go well with every outfit----dresses, shorts, jeans and even swimwear :)
