Project Runway Season 9 Begins!

I am so excited to announce that we are starting up our next Project Runway challenge. For several seasons now, EtsyMetal has played along with the Project Runway challenges and invites others to participate as well.

Here is how it works: the day after the show airs we will post a translation of the challenge here on our blog. Participants have one week to make a piece and must submit it by midnight of the next Thursday, when the show airs.

And now, for our first challenge!

Episode 1: "Come as You Are"
Air: 7.28.11
My Lifetime, Thursdays, 9pm PST.

The Project Runway Challenge:
The designers had to use the clothes they slept in the night before plus one of their bedsheets to create a new look. They also had access to dye and trimmings.

For our EtsyMetal Translation:
Since this challenge was all about using what you have in an unexpected way, and since most of us don’t sleep in jewelry, the challenge this week is to make something only from material that is sitting on your bench! If you don’t have a bench or access to your studio, then choose another area like your desk. Since the designers got a sheet, we get some sheet metal. You are welcome to use enhancements like stones from your supplies. But the final piece should be made of a majority of your found pieces if possible. Ok now, make it work!

Can't wait to see what is in store for us next week!
