ETSYMETAL Jewelry Challenge: Project Runway Season 7.8 " The Four Elements of Fashion"




WELCOME to the reveal of last weeks' Episode 7
"Hardware Store!"
Below are our Five EtsyMetal member entries!
Last weeks' TV challenge was to create a look that the components were from a hardware store!


1~ Catherine Chandler ~ Knob Brooch
Catherine says, "I went and visited Hippo Hardware, here in Portland, OR, and found some wonderful quirky finds. 
I wasn't sure I would be able to create something solely from hardware store finds, but one thing I have learned about myself recently, is that I am a problem solver. And happily, I figured out a way to make it work! I'm very happy with this piece and fully intend on making more. Keep an eye out! "

Materials: 
drawer pull
wire
washer
screw
nail
*pin back 
(*non-hardware piece)



2~ Victoria Takahashi ~ Washer Envy Necklace
Victoria says, "This week I kept it simple. On the show, there was a horrific hot pink string washer bathing suit made. I felt he disrespected the simple washer and so i felt the need to made this piece to honor the "washer" and its sweet perfectness as individual roundly object thingamajigs."

Materials:
Sterling Silver
Steel
Brass
Oxidized

3~ Inbar Bareket ~ Man Short Necklace
Inbar says,  "I was schlepping the "Home Center" to find cool stuff ! Suddenly saw these beautiful metal support for glass shelf (I saw "beads" in my imagination). I than found this rubber cord (for jewelry) 5mm in diameter, and I ended them with sterling silver findings."


4~ Kira Ferrer ~ Copper Bangle
Kira says, "I formed plumber's copper tubing to make this hollow coral bangle."





5~ Sara Westermark ~ Washer Necklace
Sara says, "Electrical Copper, and found washers at the Habitat store."
