Project Accesory Season 1- Episode 5 "Beach Blanket Blingo"

Project Accessory Challenge
The designers were asked to design beachwear accessories. They each chose a bathing suit & then were sent to Coney Island Beach to collect found objects for creating a pair of sandals, headwear & an accessory of their choice. Given $100 to also shop a the tourist shops along the boardwalk.

EtsyMetal Challenge
Since we all don't live near a body of water, I chose to keep it simple. Create a piece of jewelry that would be worn stylishly to the beach. It can be a ring, bracelet, earrings, necklace, belt, choose! You may incorporate objects from the beach, but not a requirement.

Here are this weeks creations:

Kira Ferrer
Kira often incorporates beach glass into her work. This was the perfect challenge for her!

Panicmama Jewelry
I choose to do something that emphasizes textures you might find on the beach. This abstract pendant incorporates a labradorite rose cut stone, bead, and a Tahitian Cultured Pearl (what is more beachy than a pearl!)

Project Accessory Challenge
The designers were asked to design accessories for the Kenneth Cole Holiday Collection. They each were assigned an outfit from the collection that they needed to accessorize with a clutch and an accessory of their choice. The challenge asked them to incorporate their style but to also create something that fits with the aesthetic of the Kenneth Cole brand. The winner was awarded having their items produced by Kenneth Cole and sold in the Holiday Collection.

EtsyMetal Challenge
For this weeks challenge, create an accessory of your choice that goes with one of the outfits given to the designers from the Kenneth Cole Collection. It must still fit your own personal style but accessible enough to be part of the Kenneth Cole brand.

Now go be creative!
