ETSYMETAL Jewelry Challenge: Project Runway Season 13.13 REVEAL "Finale Part 1"

 

Welcome to the reveal of last weeks' Episode 13
"Finale Part 1"
Project Runway Season 13 Episode 13 ~ Air Date: 10/16/14

 Season 13, Episode 13- Tim Gunn and the designers travel to Rome for inspiration and fabric shopping before heading home to work on their collections for New York Fashion Week. They were asked to present the judges with 3 looks from their collections for a pre-fashion week preview show. 

EtsyMetal Translation: Our EtsyMetal jewelry challenge was to create 3 unique charms, these charms should represent you and your individual style!


Here are my 3 charms for finale part 1!
Sterling Silver
 
Guest Submission by Leidi Jorge
Episode finale: Tornado Serie.    
Copper, thread, seed beads.
 
 "I chose the piece made in episode 5, was one of my favorite pieces of this challenge and used it as inspiration for this finale.
An interesting coincidence is that the original piece was inspired by winning outfit in that episode, a beautiful blue fringed dress designed by Sean Kelly who ended up the winner of this season."
 
Victoria Takahashi~Experimetal
"I wanted to share that I actually attempted to make 3 charms last week but only made this far!
It is an assemblage of "earth, wind & fire". The antler represents the earth, the abstract copper wing is air and the lava rock underneath I am going to cut a hand faceted cabochon and for all to be worn clustered together. So these will be my next project on my to do list to finish, if you are interested you can see the progress here ;)
 
I want to especially thank Anna Severina Fell & Leidi Jorge for working so hard and making some truly wonderful and inspiring pieces this season! You to ladies are troopers and thank you for playing, you really made it work!
 
I will wrap this season up with this being our final PR blog post for this 13th season.
Congratulations to Sean Kelly and runner up Amanda Valentine!
Thank you Project Runway, we love your show!

Etsy Metal 3xR Challenge 2014 Week 39

In this year long marathon of reducing, reusing and recycling many of us may well have 'hit the wall' (myself included) but we WILL keep soldering, shaping and sawing and we WILL finish.  No signs of fatigue in Sarah Hood's studio!  Please tell us your secret Sarah!  In the meantime, the rest of us will be taking on fluids, walking a few miles and then we WILL make a spectacular sprint finish!
