Jewelry has always been a hot item to sell at craft shows, but you also have to deal with the fact many people do this craft. So you need to come up with products that are a little different.
Creating pieces where no two are alike is one way, and recycling is another, so in this project you can use all your favourite nail polishes, and even those ones you didn't like so much and they are sitting on your dresser collecting dust.
Just remember when you are doing this project that you are building the layers backwards to the way you would do your nails. The layer you want to see first on this glass piece is the one you need to apply first. I found this great tutorial on just how to make a great nail polish ring, but you can use it for pendants too. Just think outside the box.
Making Nail Polish Jewelry - You will need to use proper "bails" if you wish to make these into pendants. A bail is a metal piece that is attached to the back of the glass with strong glue so that a chain can be fed through to wear around your neck. You can get these bails online at Amazon by clicking here
You can get most of the supplies you need for these crafts at craft stores or online.
There are many shapes and sizes of glass marbles or even glass pendants below that will make your nail polish jewelry look awesome with depth of color as there is some thickness to these pieces. You could layer the colors or do stripes or even crackle there are so many ways to turn these pieces of glass into something wonderful. The flat bottom glass allows you to create rings as in the video.
There are so many ways you can create beautiful jewelry using nail polish. The supplies are affordable and you can have fun with this craft. You don't have to charge much for this craft as your supplies will be affordable.
You can advertise it as a gift idea, and I have found that pricing items under 20 dollars create a quicker sale. Many potential customers will have a 15 to 20 dollar threshold where they do not have to think about it for too long, and if you offer many pieces to choose from, you will get a few sales. Make sure and have them in a hanging display of some kind or on a angled display case backed with black velvet as this will truly make the beautiful marble effect of your work stand out and look it's best.
Create a few versions of this project, by trying different shaped beads and glass squares as above. Offer rings and even consider making earrings out of smaller glass pieces as you don't want anything to heavy for the ears.
Use a nice simple chain if making a pendant. I have even used dollar store jewelry that had a nice chain and dissected it for my projects. Online, the local craft store and many times the dollar stores are some great places to look for supplies.
