For those of you who are just stopping in for a peek, EtsyMetal is holding a fun freestyle Jewelry Challenge that is coinciding with Project Runway episodes.
Every Friday we will post the video snippet (see bottom of this post) of the new PR show. We will also post all the submissions from the previous weeks challenge. Anyone is welcome to play along with us. Just post your link of your piece in the comment box and then we will post your links in the next weeks EMJC-PR reveal post.
*A special note to 'non-team members' that are joining in:
We are so glad to have you be a part of our challenge!
#1~ Kathryn Reichert "New Life"
#2~ Amanda Conley
Amanda says, "It's an Sterling Silver and Peridot initial necklace with the birthstone in the center of the flower. I used "e" because it is the initial of two of my children."
#4~ Victoria Takahashi "Fertility Basket"
#5~ Sara Westermark "Mothers Web"
Nina says, "I wanted to do something that really worked for a pregnant woman. The first thing that came to mind for me was that women's fingers expand and they can no longer wear their rings. So this is a ring that expands from a size 5 to a size 6."
#8~ Sophie Wiggins
Sophie says, "I designed a piece of jewellery for an expectant mother...the Peridot is because it is supposed to confer ease in childbirth (um, as I recall, NOTHING would have made that easy, so maybe I should have worn peridot!)this is modelled after primitive european jewellery, deliberately - having children is as primitive as it gets, and it's also about creation, so it was supposed to have a priestessy feel. It's deliberately asymmetric, too, just because my bump stuck out more on one side than the other, both times.so yes, that sums up pregnancy for me - wonky and primal. And I couldn't wear rings when I was pregnant, bracelets bugged and drew attention to my revolting swollen hands, and I liked wearing necklaces above the suddenly ludicrously oversized boobs and belly. I know. TMI.
#10~ Cynthia Del Giudice
Our final entry is a beautiful hand fabricated Copper and Sterling Silver pendant. It hangs from a handmade Sterling Silver chain. I love the organic feel of this necklace and I love the womb interpretation.
So, here are some ideas that were thrown out to help design a piece around this weeks episode.
