I accepted another do-over challenge.  This time, Jeannie Dukic offered to send a piece of jewelry she made as a beginner.....and we were supposed to make something wonderful :).   I hope I rose to this challenge.......and as usual, I was scrambling to complete the jewelry on time.  I requested the piece with plenty of time to be creative.....however, when I received the necklace, I stared......and stared.....and stared at it completely perplexed on how to make this beautiful necklace into something "better".  It wasn't easy.  My solution was to take the necklace apart and stare at the individual beads.  My first idea was to make a sweater clasp......I ended up making a necklace and two bracelets.  I used close to 85% of the beads.   I hope Jeannie enjoys my do-over! :D

Here is the original piece......I would wear this.....it was a shame to tear it apart!

......and here are my do-over pieces :D

Hope you enjoy this blog hop!! :D
