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!

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.

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"
