Oops! Let's try that again!

You may remember that I made my beautiful daughter three necklaces out of a strand of coral beads she purchased.

Unfortunately, she really didn't like one of them...the silver one with smaller, coral beads.  If you don't remember it, this is what it looked like.

For years she wouldn't wear anything except silver jewelry, but now she seems to like gold better.  Plus, she thought it was a little short.

So, I cut it apart and started over (one of the benefits of knowing how to make jewelry!). I was lucky to have three beads that were left over from the previous necklaces.  Those were incorporated into the new design.

I used 18 inches of gold-filled chain, and wire-wrapped each bead directly onto the chain, or to the bead above it, which was then wire-wrapped onto the chain.

I'm happy to report that she liked this design much better!!

So the moral of the story is...if at first you don't succeed, try, try again!

  1. Like that new one a lot, Renee. The bubble look is really trendy. The other one looked vaguely Native American.
