DIY: Upcycled Glitter Jewelry

I must say, I'm a little chuffed about this project.
I kinda love it. 
You will need:
an old watch (or watch case, if you're making a necklace)
strong glue
I used my vintage watches as bracelets and 
made a necklace from a case that was missing it's wristband. 
Use small pliers to remove the pin, to pull apart the front and back of case, 
then remove inner workings. Fill one side of case with a mound of fine glitter.
Put front and back together, snap shut. 
Either glue the watch pin back in the hole or fill the hole with strong glue.
TIPS: a)The more glitter you put in, the less movement you will have. And vice versa.
I did the large bracelet about 75% full and the small one about 90% full. I like both results but I'm really into a lot of movement - it entertains me to shake the bracelet around like a snow globe. 

b)If you applied a layer of mod podge or glue on the bottom base, some glitter would stick and give a more uniform look and less movement, if that's what you're after.

Disclaimer: I can't guarantee you won't get glitter all over you in this process. ;)

OMG, this is GENIUS!! I have an almost adiction to glitter, and I have SO MUCH stashed away. (When I say "so much" I mean I can put my hands on over 20 different kinds/colors/sizes within moments right now. Yea. My husband tolerates me... I'm so lucky!! :D)

what kind of glue did you use? and how exactly did you get everything to attach?

Sam, I used E600 but a hot glue gun would work. Or Amazing Goop. I didn't do much to get it all to attach. Just filled one side with glitter, snapped both sides back together, filled little hole with glue. That's it. You can do it, easy peasy!

من المعروف ان نظافة المنازل من بين اهم الخدمات الضرورية في التنظيف والترقية بمنازلنا الى مصاف المنازل العصرية والتي عرفت تنظيفا عصريا من شانه ان يوفر لساكنته ظروفا حياتية راقية ولابد من توفر هيئة تختص في المجال مع تقديم ضمانات متكاملة من شانه ان تجعل الافراد يضمنون نجاح خدمة التنظيف ولا حاجة للمزيد من ضياع الاموال عبر طلبات خدمة نظافة المنازل التي لا تلبي حاجياتهم ولا تتماشى مع رغباتهم لأن العديد من شركات تنظيف المنازل تسعى فقط الى عرض خدماتها عبر طرق ترويجية فحسب من اجل كسب المال فقط دون مراعاة الوازع الاخلاقي والضمير المهني الذي يحتم على مدراء مثل هاته الشركات ان يسعوا خلف ارضاء العملاء ليس اكثر من هذا عبر اتقان تنظيف المنازل . شركة عزل خزانات بالقصيم
