Season 11, Episode 4 : “The Ultimate Hard and Soft”
Challenge due Thursday, February 21 (midnight your time):
This week’s challenge is a FLASHBACK CHALLENGE! Inspired by the Glade 2-in-1 scented candles, the designers will be sourcing their materials from BOTH a flower shop AND the hardware store! It’s a 2 in 1 challenge to make a cohesive line of 6 looks of “hard and soft”. The line needs to contain both flowers and hardware, but EACH look does not!
Translation: I think this one was made just for us! Design a piece of jewelry that has elements of hard AND soft... include something you'd find in a hardware store with something organic, either something like a real flower or metal that looks organic.
“I enameled masonry nails to get them more organic and strung them together with red hemp.”
“Brass tube, glass beads, handmade silk cord.”
