Open 8/11/12 through 8/18/12
"Makeover"Take this week's prompt as an opportunity to breathe new life into old work. Pull out your creations from way-way back or, if you have a shop, pick out an item that has had it's listing expire. Re-imagine and re-work old pieces , whether it's adding on or simplifying, to take them to a new level of fantasticness.
Leave a link in the comments to your "makeover" creations, and be sure to include before and after pics. I'll show off your work (as well as my own) next Saturday before announcing next week's prompt!
Last week's prompt was called "An Unlikely Duo", and we had a grand total of one participant. Me. It's cool, I'll just keep doing this until it catches on.
So, my randomly chosen components were these two:
So, here's my creation.
On the left side is a strand of abalone shell buttons, which I recenly procured a ton of. I like them because they're totally different on each side. The fronts are all shiny and pearly, but the backs are rough and rustic, which is equally attractive to me, because I'm a grunge-aholic.
The right side is all tube beads that I made from Bettina Welker's wildly popular (amongst the polyclay community) tutorial. I have more that will go up in the shop soon, as well as some round ones with the same pattern and colors.
