Project Runway Season 10, Episode 6: Fix My Friend

Season 10, Episode 6: Fix My Friend
Air 8/24/12
My Lifetime, Thursdays 9pmPST
The designers had to design a makeover look for a friend in need.
For our EtsyMetal Translation: 
Find a piece of jewelry that you made that you weren't satisfied with and give it a makeover. (Or use a piece of jewelry that you didn't make and give it a makeover) Please post a before and after picture.
Make it work!!

“A lady came to me two days ago with these earrings and asked me if I can make something with them. 
I made an agreement with her - I don't know what the stones are. I'll think of something ...but if I ruin them - that will be OK with her. She agreed.”


“I made this piece in the past year. I had made all the little moth parts, but wasn't sure how to put them together, so I ended up stringing them like beads on heavy beading wire, with turquoise beads in between. I just didn't like the way it worked. The metal pieces would slide back and forth and sometimes you could see the beading wire, sooooo....
...I unstrung it and made a copper wire chain, (each part of the chain is fused together) attaching each piece to a copper link. I'm much happier with it because I know where the pieces are going to fall and I like the copper chain much much better.”

“I finally have one! I made this ring several years ago and it never quite worked.
So I sawed the top off, drilled and torch riveted a quartz drop on blackened chain. I consider it a 'future primitive' pendant and am much happier with it!”

Our next challenge:
Season 10, Episode 7: Oh My Lord and Taylor Air 8/30/12

They had to design a cocktail or evening dress for Lord & Taylor customers that will retail in the $200 to $300 price range. A designer from each of the other nine seasons has also created a look and the dress must fit in with the collection. The winning look will be manufactured by Lord & Taylor along with the others and sold online and at the flagship store. The dress will also be displayed in the window.
