Spring Do-Over Challenge




Re-do of Original Pieces Plus My Art Beads
 I’m hooked!  The Do-Over Challenge that Jeannie Dukic ‘JKD Studio’ www.jkdjewelry.com offers has become something I look forward to.  Jeannie sends pieces of her ‘old’ jewelry to those of us who sign up and we get to create something new from them.  It does not matter if we like the piece she sends because we take it apart, add beads from our stash and create a completely new piece.  It’s a great way to recycle.

Original Necklace and earrings
When I received my piece to re-create, it lay on my bead try for a while as I sorted through the possibilities.  There were 3 art beads that might work but only one yelled, “Me!  Take me!”  Fortunately I had more of the polymer cane that was used for that bead because I wanted smaller one to go with the big chosen art bead.  The green chips were to be filler beads highlighting my art beads. 

Large 'Take Me!' bead!

I made two pair of earrings.  One pair could be part of a set with the necklace and one pair that used the turquoise beads and bell charms from Jeannie’s original necklace. 



   


I like them and will look forward to the next challenge this fall!

  2. Your "Me, Take Me" beads really punched some like into this necklace. I love colorful beads. The beads on both pairs of earrings are really cool too! The peridot chip really do highlight your beads. I think it was fate. Thank you so much for participating. Looking forward to the next one.
