Candy Jewelry

New Year is over and it's time to loose some weight. Here's a little idea on how to use the candies you won't eat for the next few weeks. These original earrings and necklaces were Christmas presents for my sisters. 

You will need :

- Clear nail varnish
- Cheap jewels
- Hard candies
- Epoxy glue
- Stick (something to mix the glue)
- Wax paper


Apply a first layer of varnish on the candies. Let them dry on the wax paper during 30 minutes. Repeat 3 to 6 times until the layer is about 1mm thick. This process can take several hours... so do it while watching a movie.


Squeeze a little bit of glue from both syringe on a clean surface. The mix have to be 50-50 (the same quantity of both liquids).
 3- MIX

Use a stick to merge the epoxy mix. Make sure to have a uniform substance. If you have a 5 minutes epoxy, you will have to apply it fast because it will soon become very hard.

 4- GLUE

Use the tip of the stick to glue the candy to the original jewel. Some soft candies like Gummy Bears can be entirely covered with epoxy to protect them.

5- DRY

You can pin the earrings into something soft, like a sponge, to let them dry. For bigger candies, use a piece of wax paper. Let everything dry for a night.


Find a nice little box or make one. I won't tell you how to make a box...
