Jeannie's 3rd Do-Over Challenge

Good day to you.  Thanks for stopping by.  I am participating in the 3rd Do-Over Challenge where I was sent a piece of jewelry that was made when Jeannie first started making jewelry and no longer wants to sell. 

I was sent the following necklace made of blue topaz chips, puffed glass faceted discs and this super glass heart.

I was undecided about what to add to the heart, so I took the following pictures to try and help me out.

I hope I did justice to the original necklace.  I kept the blue topaz chips, the heart, and the original hook and eye clasp and added the blue rounds from the first picture above and the memory wire from the third picture above.

The original hook and eye clasp.

I added a memory wire circle around the heart with the blue rounds.  I also added blue round links of 3-5 beads in the necklace itself to replace the puffed disks that I took out.

Thanks for stopping by.

Bracelet Challenge

I have been here in the background reading blogs and adding new ones to my favorites list.   I have been working on several challenges and the first up is Tracy Statler's Wrapped, Stacked & Layered Bracelet Challenge. 

Two of the bracelets below, the purple and green matte crackle glass and the lavender glass beads are the bracelets that I made for the challenge.  The third bracelet is amethyst chips with black glass beads.  I thought the combination of the three worked really well together.

I had several braclets on hand that I stacked together, such as the blue goldstone and blue ceramic one below

The bracelets below are other ones that I added to wear together.  Mixed green glass beads and green crackle glass and peach molded flowers.

These are two other bracelets that I had that worked well stacked together.  Unfortunately the stacked picture didn't turn out.  The bracelet on the top is crystals and stone and the bottom bracelet I believe is jasper.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to visit the other entries listed below.
