Jeannie sent each of the participants a piece of jewelry that she had made. The point of this challenge? To cut up the piece she sent us and remake it into something else. Yup, cut it apart. I know right?!
The piece I was sent wasn't all bad, it looks like something I would have made a few years ago before I knew much about gemstones and art beads.
|Original Necklace and Earrings|
The necklace sat on my bead table/kitchen counter for several days before I cut it apart. I almost felt bad taking my cutters to the wire (almost) once I poured the beads onto the counter I started to have fun.
I added a Vintaj blank, beads, leaf, and toggle clasp, some bronze seed beads and pendant from Mellisa of Chinook Designs.
I bet you are wondering what I did with the rest of the necklace right? Well stay tuned to the blog on Friday because those Peridot chips were exactly what I needed to finish a necklace I was working on for the Artisan Clay Design Team.
Now please go check out the other participant's blogs and what they made. I know I can't wait. We all got different things to work with so I am looking forward to seeing what everyone did. Make sure you visit Jeannie's blog too (she's listed first) :-)
