Project Accessory Season 1-Challenge 4

For this weeks challenge:

Project Accessory Challenge
The designers were given a box with the contents of someones handbag. They were challenged to create something that everything would fit into and match the clients contents. They were able to shop at Mood for materials for the challenge and use anything off of the Swarovski elements wall. As a extra layer to the challenge, they were to make an accessory out of the clients old handbag in less than two hours left to the challenge.

EtsyMetal Challenge
Create a piece of jewelry that would compliment a handbag in your closet, one you lust after from that famous designer or one that you wear everyday! It can be a ring, bracelet, earrings, necklace, belt, anklet...shall I say as an extra twist: it must incorporate LEATHER (or pleather for the vegans!!) Post pictures of your inspiration and the finished piece if you can.

Here is the creation (lonely ol' me):

Panicmama Jewelry
This brewed in my brain for awhile before it all came together. I have a few black leather handbags with fringe from various stages of my (now outgrown) "biker chick/rocker chick" phases over the years, but I seem to never out grow the appeal of a splash of silver hardware & a bit of fringe (or maybe A LOT of fringe!) Wanting to make something more accessible & wearable, I chose to pare down the fringe compared to my inspiration bag, a Prada Nappa Fringe Hobo Bag (Spring 2007 Collection.) For my bracelet, I used lambskin leather (so soft,) fine silver, sterling silver & hand crocheted gortex thread. Maybe I'll let my biker chick/rocker chick (I could never decide) out of the closet to wear this one!

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.

Now go be creative!
