4th Do Over Challenge Reveal

The time has come for us to reveal what we created from the Do Over jewelry !
Are you curious to see what I did ?

A refresher on the items I was given ...
Which yielded these components to work with ...

The necklace and earrings I received  in my packet were made mostly of glass beads. These tend to be heavy and thick. My first reaction to the set when I removed it from the envelope and laid it on my work table was "too much of a good thing" . So I set out to create a design that would support the weight of the glass beads yet open up the piece so the hearts were the points of interest.

I separated a few of the beads out for a special project. Now, what were the balance of the beads telling me ?

The first thing to catch my attention was the clasp . A heart holding its partner.  Bringing closure to the circle. And going around & around in a circle is what I did the next few days. After much arranging & rearranging, stringing & taking apart, setting it aside & coming back later I settled on this design.

I have shown the necklace & earrings I created .

Remember  the soft pink heart beads I held out ?
I share a birth date with  a special young lady in England , Yes, Izzy, I am talking about you !  She has a passion for horses .  This set is for her !

I used the large red glass heart with other elements to create a purse fob decoration.

This is what I started with

And this is what I had left in the end.
