7th Do Over Challenge Reveal

I decided to give the 7th-do-over-challenge hosted by Jeannie of JLD Studio a try. Jeannie ships you an older piece of her jewellery and your challenge is to redo the piece. Thanks for the challenge Jeannie.

Pieces I received ....

 
 
I received a piece created with dark blue and black paper beads, light blue plastic flower beads. silver spacers and wire wrapped silver beads. The instructions said it was OK to create one piece from all the pieces I received. Since I like "weightier" necklaces I decided to combine the paper and the silver wrapped beads, add some black vinyl heishi and some African glass donuts. I used the original silver toggle and added some silver spaces to complete the piece.

  2. What a great change! The weight and feeling are so different, but the original beads shine though.

    1. Thank you for visiting - I had a fear that the original beads were not noticeable enough. I appreciate your opinion that they still stand out ---- That was my decision as well. I appreciate your comment.

  5. Like you, I prefer a heavier necklace with more visual weight. And I love that you stayed with the blue theme. Wonderful result!
