A tiny bracelet becomes a necklace and some earrings.
Several weeks ago, I received this bracelet, made with pink dyed shell buttons, seed beads, and some tiny multicolored beads including some turquoise ones. Jeannie Dukic of JKD Studios and Whee! The People sends these pieces to us so that we can change her older vision to our current vision.
This bracelet was tiny, and I spent quite some time trying to figure out something new and different I could do with it.
I used the pink buttons with some tear drop shaped seed beads, and the tiny cream colored seed beads from the original design. The pendant and the tear drops came from a strange, unfinished looking necklace that I bought at a yard sale. The seed beads at the back of the necklace just happened to match very well.
And then, there are these earrings:
You can see the turquoise beads and the yellow beads from the ends of the bracelet, which complement the big wooden fish, from another old necklace. I beg to be forgiven for originally thinking the fish were hedgehogs.
This was probably my hardest Do Over challenge. It was just so darn small. I could see the earrings right away, but the rest, I had to really use my brain, to avoid making the same piece over again. I hope that you all like my work as much as I do in the end.
Here are the rest of the participants in this year's challenge:
