5th Do Over Challenge Reveal!

Jeannie K. Dukic sent each participant an old, tried, boring piece of my jewelry for free and you will work your magic and turn it into something beautiful and amazing.  The jewelry she sent out for this challenge are designs made when she was new to jewelry-making and won’t sell.   Well she could, but she believes no one would buy them.  This is NOT jewelry currently listed on her website!  There will be no art beads of any kind in what you receive, and it will not be in any fancy packaging when you receive it.
Yeah....no fancy packaging here.
There is no guarantee that participants will even like the jewelry they receive for this challenge.  Remember, this is just a challenge and the goal is to have fun with the jewelry make-over!  Here is what I received:
A gold chain with crystals, and gemstones and earrings to match.  The owl charm was part of the "nothing fancy" packaging.  I can't say that I liked the necklace, but that is because I don't use pastel colors much.  I don't have any crystals in my stash to go with those on the necklace/earrings.  But that owl charm is hooting at me to be used.
I redid the earrings:
I actually had an art bead, from emmyloubeads, that kind of went with the crystals, and now I have a necklace.

And now for the fun piece!
