Do Over Challenge Reveal

After a bit of a delay, here's my Do Over of the beaded necklace and earrings sent to me:

Here's the full length view of the necklace, very long .
This is the close up of the two different configurations of beads I used  the length of the necklace.
I opted not to make a pair of earrings and just focus on a necklace. I really liked the orange-y colored beads and the smaller iridescent clear/gold beads. I left the clear beads out of my design. I really like tribal, ethnic designs so I chose some carved wood beads from my stash to complete the look. The design itself reminds me more of Native American designs in the overall shape of the necklace. Hopefully, I can find somewhere to wear it.

It was a different experience for me. I consider myself an advanced beginner when it comes to beading and I tried to stretch myself to do something different than I would normally make and I hope I achieved that.

Thanks to Jeannie for organizing this. Check out Jeannie's Blog so you can check out the rest of the participants Do Overs.



  1. I really like your do over. It's so much more interesting to look at than the generic pieces you received. I think it's a success!

  2. What a cool idea! I can imagine this necklace with a simple elegant dress.
