March Monthly Challenge "30 Minute Challenge"


We asked our EtsyMetal Team members to pick one project from either the

 (Author Marthe Le Van, Publisher Lark Crafts.)
And then make a project that was inspired by a piece in the book, but here's the fun part, they had to incorporate their juju, style, & personality into the piece, thus transforming it into their personal style. This what they came up with!

see at the bottom the next months challenge!

Debbie Ritchie
picked Bracelet #43 for her inspiration, page 94. 
(Original Designer from the 30 Minute Bracelet Book was Susan Machamer)

picked ring #34, but made a bracelet instead, page 76. (Original Designer from the 30 minute Ring Book was Dilyana Evtimova)
"I chose ring #34 as inspiration. The ring has a washer that is twisted and bent, then attached to a ring shank. I decided a version of this design might look good as a cuff bracelet. My original idea was to make several twisted washers and attach them to the top of a cuff bracelet, but when I had them laid out, it didn't look right. I had made a couple different sizes, so tried stacking them. I liked the way they formed a sort of abstract flower. So I made one more larger washer to add to the bottom of the stack (there are 3 total). The cuff part of the bracelet started as something completely different, but I liked the delicate look of the nested washers, so decided the cuff should echo that. I chose a thin (but strong enough) piece of square wire for the bracelet to give the overall piece a delicate, pretty look."
