Do Over Challenge Blog Hop




Hello all! Check out Jeannie's Blog for the other participants in the Do Over Challenge Blog Hop! Jeannie sent us a piece of jewelry from her collection that she had made long ago. The challenge was to use at least 50% of the beads and make it into a new piece. I got incredibly lucky!! The piece I received had seed beads! So OF COURSE I made a beaded toggle out of them! I then agonized over what to do with the mother of pearl coins! I let it sit for days....then AH HA! I remembered my bead stash that I won in a giveaway from Kitty! The lampwork heart called to me and I wrapped, almost guiltily I might add, a Vintaj dragonfly around it.......then it just all came together after that!! I hope you like it as much as I do!!! Enjoy!!

The colors are great with the green heart! The beaded toggle is so pretty. I love that you adding the beads in the earrings "as is." That just made me smile.
Thank you for participating Leslie

Very pretty, Leslie! I love the dragonfly wrapped pendant, very clever and the beaded circle for the toggle clasp is beautiful!

Hi Leslie! Isn't this fun? I love that you used those seed beads in a fun toggle. I am completely enamored of seed bead toggles because I avoid seed beads like the plague! ;-)
I love the beautiful glass heart wrapped with the dragonfly. It looks like a secret garden! Enjoy the day!

The bead toggle is beautiful. The dragonfly wrapped around the glass bead has me thinking of some wonderful "rocks" I have in my stash that would look lovely done up this way. Very pretty necklace!!

Love the result of your Do Over! Of course, the clasp is beautiful, and it all came together perfectly. I like the green of the heart with the shades of purple. Great job!
