Etsy Metal Project Runway Challenge (Season 13 Episode 6)

Etsy Metal Project Runway Challenge (Season 13 Episode 6)

I missed a few weeks of this Etsy Metal Project Runway Jewelry Challenge because I have been so busy but I couldn’t skip week 6. The challenge was right up my alley plus I already had these earrings in the works!

The Project Runway challenge: Inspired by the new trend in nontraditional wedding dresses worn by rock stars on their big day, the designers must wow the judges with their own version of an unconventional wedding dress.
The Etsy Metal Translation: This week let’s use the same parameters of Project Runway’s challenge and also use inspiration from rock-n-roll weddings to create a unconventional wedding piece for a non-traditional wedding!

I made these earrings from white copper clay, turquoise beads and sterling silver to go with this necklace….

Etsy Metal Project Runway Challenge (Season 13 Episode 2)

Etsy Metal Project Runway Challenge (Season 13 Episode 2)

We are now in the second week of the Etsy Metal Project Runway Jewelry Challenge for Season 13.  For week 2 was the “unconventional challenge”  which means we had to make jewelry from non- jewelry items. You can read all the details here:

I made a bracelet out of duct tape and electrical wire left over from some home renovations. Both were items used in making the dresses in the winning collection. I made a rose bracelet to go with my favorite dress from that collection…. and I went with a rose because of my rose collection in my metal jewelry.
