The challenge was to take an existing piece and use the components and create a new piece with a "spring" theme.
This is the original bracelet:
I squirreled away the rhinestone spacers to use in another project. "Spring" just did not include anything that shiny. Unless you are a magpie. In which case I could have used them, since I like birds. However, magpies don't wear necklaces. And regardless of how much I like little animals in accessories, I am digressing and veering way off point. Kind of like a magpie.
Here is the necklace.
Since it is such a long strand I can wear it wrapped twice around my neck or six times around my wrist. (Like I am doing right now as I type this.) Wrist photo, here. Thanks Heather for the suggestion.
Thanks, Michelle for hosting this great challenge. This was a fun piece to string.
Be sure to visit the blogs of the other participants. It's a talented group and I am looking forward to seeing everyone's work.
