ETSYMETAL Jewelry Challenge: Project Runway Season 13.11 REVEAL "Highest Bidder"

Welcome to the reveal of last weeks' Episode 11
"Highest Bidder"
Project Runway Season 13, Episode 11 ~ Air Date: 10/02/14.
For the challenge, working in pairs, the designers bid on storage units to gather materials for their challenge. When it comes down to the final two designers for elimination the judges throw in a twist and put them to the ultimate test.
Our EtsyMetal Translation:
Was to challenge you to make something out of the materials they had in their storage lockers! There was a lot to work with below and of course you can use Metal!
Locker 1: Upholstery Fabric
Locker 2: Children's toys
Locker 3: Blue movers blanket (like Chars winning look)
Locker 4:  Japanese Shoji screen or Dolls
 Locker 5: Leather or Astro Turf
Picked Locker #5 and made a leather and pearl choker.
Guest Submission!
Picked Locker #2 and made "funny necklace"
Episode 12: 
"Who's in and Who's out"
Project Runway Season 13 Episode 12 ~ Air Date: 10/9/14

 Season 13, Episode 12- The designers challenge was to reate a street chic look inspired by NYC and a new look from a losing look.
EtsyMetal Translation: Our EtsyMetal jewelry challenge will be to take a past piece  you made that you can revamp into something you can be proud of!
If you do not have any old pieces to reconstruct, then try going through your history and remake an old design into a current one! Have fun!


*guidelines for guest participants*

The pieces you submit must be pieces that are made with intent for that weeks challenge. Then post your  Flickr, FB links (I need to be able to grab the photo) in this weeks comment area below, I will retrieve them as they come in before the deadline.
We will post your name, link, description (you write) and a picture of your piece on this blog. Remember, the rigid deadline for submitting your link is always on Thursdays, 12 midnight, Pacific Standard Time. The new blog posts will go up on Friday.

Blog Carnival

Welcome to our EtsyMetal monthly Blog Carnival!
Blog Carnival is about a group of our members sharing their experience on a common topic


What are some of your favorites pieces that you have made and the inspiration behind them?

Etsy Metal 3xR Challenge week 37

Here in the Etsy Metal Challenge group we have been making all kinds of beads and baubles for intrepid, independently minded women (no mass produced imports in our Etsy shops).  This week though, the Men get a bit of a look in as we get busy creating some completely unique cuff links that would give any sharp dressed man an independent edge.

Members' News for the month of October

Fall is here and it's my favorite time of year!  Hope all you readers are enjoying these lovely temperatures and great fall days.
Here's what some of our etsy metal team is up to this month.....

One of our new members, Wendy Wetherbee of Pure Dichotomy wanted to make an announcement-
"I am happy to announce that I was accepted into a juried holiday fair that I've been looking forward too. It will be my second year there and its the best show I've done to date. Hoping this year will be just as good. They have a Friday Adult only Shopping evening (this is key and a great idea) and then an all day family oriented holiday festival on Saturday. I set up Friday afternoon and can leave my booth set up for the next morning. The crowd is fantastic and a perfect match for my work. It's a Waldorf School and they are a very earth friendly crowd that appreciates art and handcraft. Pine Hill Waldorf School, Wilton, NH. December Friday December 5 & Saturday December 6."
Please mark this on your calendars if you plan to be in the area.
