Welcome to the Do-Over Challenge Blog Hop hosted by the talented Jeannie Dukic of Whee! The People blog!
The way this works is Jeannie sends out an old piece of jewelry that she made and challenges us to use the components of the piece in a new piece of jewelry.
Here is a photo of the jewelry I received:
And here are the pieces I made with these beautiful purple Czech beads:
For this necklace I pulled out my favorite wireworking book, "Totally Twisted" by Kerry Bogert and found the design for these fabulous links. I also used some beautiful beads from Mary Cobble at Firebabies.
The focal for the necklace is an enameled cross I recently made that worked perfectly with the purple beads.
I decided to use the rest of the beads and the clasp from the original set in a couple of fun bracelets:
This bracelet is made with the larger Czech beads, the silver clasp and black waxed linen thread.
This last bracelet features ceramic links from Cindy Kovar at Captured Moments, and looks great with the purple coiled wire and small Czech beads.
