I am participating in the Do Over Challenge 2 created by Jeannie, a jewelry designer and here's the link to the challenge posted on her blog, http://site.jkdjewelry.com/blog/2011/09/19/do-over-challenge2/. And here's an explanation of the challenge:
"The jewelry sent out for this challenge are designs I made when I was new to jewelry-making and did not know any better. These are designs I won’t sell. I can’t guarantee what you get or that you will even like it. Just have fun and keep within the spirit of what this challenge is about; DO OVER! Take a “before” and “after” picture. Try to use at the very least 50% of the do over piece. You can add beads from your own stash."
These are my "before" pictures of the earrings and necklace I received. The photos aren't great, I still need to work on my photography.
Come back later for the "after" photos to see what I came up with!
