Crystal Lacquer Treasure Chest

Treasure chest with jewels 3 (800x626)
I got a cute treasure chest charm on a chain and thought it would be fun to put some Crystal Lacquer treasure into it.

Here’s the charm:

It opens up like this:

I partially filled the chest with clear Crystal Lacquer.  I added some gold Crystal Lacquer with one of Sakura’s Pen Style Applicators

Then I sprinkled gold glitter over that.

When the Crystal Lacquer started to set up, I shook off the extra glitter, then added some “jewels” with the other Pen Style Applicators.  Finally, I added some crystal clear glitter while the “jewels” were still wet.

Won’t this be fun for a fan of Pirates of the Caribbean to wear?  Or for Barbie on a hunt for buried treasure? 

I hope this will inspire you to transform plain objects into something special!
