DIY: Upcycled Glitter Jewelry
I must say, I'm a little chuffed about this project.
I kinda love it.

I used my vintage watches as bracelets and
made a necklace from a case that was missing it's wristband.

    Step 1

    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.

    Step 2

    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. ;)
