Do Over.........Jewelry Blog Hop
Today is a day of great excitement for me....the first jewelry challenge I have participated in!
Thank you Jeannie for sending us your treasures so we could play.
In Jeanie's words ...... Here’s how it works:
I will send you an old, tried, boring piece of my jewelry for FREE and you will work your magic and turn it into something beautiful and amazing.
I had several packages of beads arrive the same day as the jewelry. When I opened the package I was confused. My first thoughts were I sure as heck didn't order this and someone goofed up big time. Then it dawned on me...the challenge! I can honestly say that the color orange challenged me.
I played with a focal I got in a bag of junk jewelry at the flea market, I played with some of my Grandmothers bead necklaces(a duffel bag full)...nothing was pleasing me. I browsed Etsy, my Silpada catalog....then decided to go the the Vintaj gallery hoping I would find some inspiration. I started looking at necklaces when I saw my name in the description of one..... I had given Betsy one of my washers as a thank you when I took the Arte Metal Madness workshop. I am so honored that she used it to make a beautiful necklace. Bingo!!..off I went to sort through my washers.
I hope I have changed orange into something beautiful and amazing.
Now please go visit all these lovely people who participated!!(Jeannie has posted for those who do not have a blog)
