8th Do-Over Challenge Reveal

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.

If you have a few moments, take some time to check out the other talented artists hopping today:

Oh my you did it again. Your pieces are so beautifully re-designed and crafted. You're a master at this. Thank you so much for participating and I hope you join me for the next one.

Lovely pieces! I love all of the extra elements you added to the first necklace. And I love the beads on that last bracelet!
Nice job!

Great make over! Your use of texture is really fabulous!

Becky Pancake said...

Hi Molly, All three of your designs are wonderful. You certainly added great texture to Jeannie's original necklace. Your enameled cross is lovely.

Donetta said...

Good golly, Miss Molly! What I love most about the transformed pieces is that there is so much YOU in them! Each is beautiful...and each wears your artistic signature beautifully. You are an inspiration!

Louise said...

Very lovely collection of purple pieces. I firmly believe that purple is a power color. You used it very well.

Rebecca Ednie said...

The original was very pretty, must have been hard to take apart. I love the bracelets and your necklace redo is very modern!

What incredible designs! There is no way I could imagine the 'after' from seeing the 'before' pic. All that coiled wire is just delicious.

Renetha said...

I am jealous of anyone who can work with wire. The designs are just so fun and full of interesting details. The purple is just a great color to work with.
