Do Over Challenge Blog Hop



Leider habe ich meine Schmuckstücke für die Challenge nie erhalten, da die Post mein Paket aus Versehen nach Großbritannien geschickt hat. Aber Jeannie hat mir versichert, daß es im September wieder eine Do-Over-Challenge geben wird, an der ich dann teilnehmen kann. Ich habe dann einfach mal bei meinen Schmuckstücken nachgesehen, was auf diese Challenge passen könnte und habe diese Korallenkette meiner Oma gefunden. Eigentlich habe ich sie nur neu aufgefädelt und einen hochwertigen Verschluß dran gemacht und nicht überarbeitet. Von meiner Mutter habe ich dann noch einen wunderschönen Korallenring bekommen, so daß ich jetzt ein komplettes Set habe, das ich sehr gerne trage.
Und hier ist noch die Blog-Liste der anderen Teilnehmer:



Sadly I never received the old jewelry pieces for the challenge, as the postal service accidentally sent my package to the UK. But Jeannie reassured me that there will be another Do Over Challenge in September. So what do I have to offer that qualifies as a do over? I looked through my pieces and found this coral necklace from my grandma. It is very old and I hesitated to wear it, because the string was very thin and almost broken. So I restrung it on high-quality jewelry wire and added a goldplated sterling silver clasp. When my Mom saw the necklace she gave me an old coral ring and now I have a complete set that I wear very often.
And here’s the blog list of the other participants:

  3. This is quite a stunning necklace and the ring is perfect to complete the necklace. I like graduated effect of the coral pieces from big to small.

    Thank you Dagi for being such a good sport about it and using a piece of your own. There will be another DO Over Challenge and I garantee you will receive your piece. Even it I have to deliver to you myself.

  7. Thank you, ladies!
    Jeannie, you'd come over here and make a personal delivery? Ha, that would be so much fun! :-)
    @For My Sweet Daughter: You can't imagine how nervous I was cutting the necklace apart. I had this picture in my head that I let it fall and all the graduated coral pieces are mixed. Gladly it didn't happen.
