One of her latest DIYs took my breath away!! This is so going in my 'To Do' list.
What you need is
Nail Polish (Glitter & Dark polish)
To keep pearls and other stuff from rolling while you're painting them you can temporarily glue them on a piece of paper using the glue gun
Good pearls gone bad: Paint the plastic forks pieces with black nail polish and then glue them onto the pearls. Once everything is dry insert the metallic wire into the pearl and make a loop with pliers. Connect the spiky pearl to a piece of chain. Add a earring hook and you've done.
