The jewelry challenge is a quick one for me. Much like the very fitst Jewel School challenges, I had one day -- well, one afternoon really -- to come up with a jewely design, create it, and post pictures!
There were more goodies than I expected in the toolbox, and I enjoyed this fast paced, fun jewelry challenge and blog hop!

I'm proud to say I actually completed the Toolbox Challenge! Although I'd like to add some earrings to match (and have the toolbox treasures, panda beads, sparkling spacers, and gunmetal findings ready to go) I did complete a necklace using a dark, not quite gunmetal, not quite black 6-sided nut and large piece of chain found in our toolbox. I have additional washers for the earrings, and I'm surprised to say, I like how it all turned out!
So, here is my Toolbox Challenge jewelry. I used black mother of pearl discs, black chain, jasper, rainbow calsilica, a black bolt, a large piece of toolbox chain, a glass focal bead, and Swarovski crystal.
|A great challenge! I can't wait to add the washer & panda bead earrings ;)|
|The nut and chain were great starting points!|
|I like the bright blue jump ring and crystals against the gunmetals.|
And now to hop! Here are the other participants in the TOOLBOX CHALLENGE & HOP. Enjoy! :)
