Upcycled Metal Jewelry

I found this silverish metal necklace once for a buck and wasn't thrilled with it but knew I wanted to be like my inquisitive nine year old and "experiment" on it.  I actually colored spots on the plain metal disks with sharpie pens in magenta, gold and silver then added drops of 90% rubbing alcohol to disburse and swirl the color to create this marbled look. I've found this technique works on metal and plastic and looks very cool. It dries super fast and works like alcohol ink at a fraction of the price.
