A couple times a year, Jeannie K. Dukic of Whee! The People and the creative genius behind JKD Studio hosts a challenge where she sends out several designers a piece of jewelry that she made sometime in the far past and we get to remake it. I have taken part a few times and I do have to say that it really is a blast because I have NO idea just what I will receive.
Now historically, I always have issues getting a 'before' pic so I am quite proud of myself for remembering and not loosing it when my hard drive crashed. As you can see, I was lucky enough to receive a memory wire bracelet with some bold resin and wooden beads. Some of the beads were quite a bit larger then what I am used too. And they looked so good in their current incarnation.
They looked so good in fact that I wanted to keep them together in some fashion and I have really been on a bracelet kick lately. So a bracelet it would be but with my own twist. I dug out some Greek leather that I had in a drawer and some more wooden beads.
And I made up a wrap bracelet that is longer, actually long enough to convert to a fun necklace. And I do have to say that I am pretty happy with it. Thank you Jeannie giving me that push (yet again) to work with beads that I wouldn't have normally chosen. I end up having a blast every time.
Now be sure to check out what everyone else has made.
