Project Accessory Season 1-Challenge 2~"Sole Searching"

Project Accessory Challenge
The designers were given the classic little black dress as the canvas and 10 minutes to grab a finished piece of jewelry as inspiration from the Swarovski Crystal Store. They were challenged to make a complimenting "adjustment" to the inspiration piece, pair of shoes and an accessory of their choice.

Etsy Metal Challenge

The challenge for EtsyMetal was to create a pair of complimenting earrings to with one of the pair of shoes one of designers from the show made.

Here are the creations:

I was inspired this week by Brian's fabtabulous Swarvoski Crystal shoes! These earrings are made of Sterling Silver, oxidized Copper and Smokey Quartz that Sara Westermark gifted me awhile back, thanks Sara!

I liked Diego's red and purple shoes - Great colors and I do love a sling back! His necklace was great too. So, I used blackened sterling silver, red leather and amethyst swarovski crystals for the complimentary earrings.

I wanted to create something simple, classic with a bit of sparkle. I don't work with Swarovski crystals much so I opted for lab created moissinite as the "bling" element. These stiletto style earrings were to go with Shea's black pump embellished with "bling" down the back of the heels. I left the oxidation completely covering the earring giving a midnight black sheen and really make the sparkle element pop!

And for next weeks challenge...

They were able to shop at Mood for materials for the challenge and use anything off of the Swarovski elements wall.
