The Link Challenge..... The Reveal



It is finally here.... Reveal day.
I have been ready for weeks && am glad I finally get to show what I came
up with.
To get everyone up to date on what we were to do,
Peggy from The Charm Barn
sent us 20 links.
Some of us got black and some a tortoise color.
I got black.

Here is what I came up with

I first wanted to come up with some type of pendant.  So I wire wrap a piece of sea glass and then used one of the links to be used to attach to either some ribbon or whatever you would chose.

After I made this.


 I wanted to make a bracelet but not have it connect like the links were meant to.So I grabbed some black wire and decided to add the green beads & this is what I came up with.  I made a clasp outta the links and with some wrapped wire.
Here is another shot of the bracelet.


Here is a list of the other blogs who have joined in the fun...
Make sure to go to The Charm Barn to vote for your favs.
(Because my son was attack by a dog, I was late posting this, so my entries will not be
entered...)

  6. I love that you did not connect the links, very creative. I love the colors that you used as well. That is what I really like about the black links, they can be mixed with anything!
    I am so glad to hear that your son is doing better and the stitches came out!
