Hello  and welcome.

This post is our first challenge for Project Runway season 10.
Just to let you know that this challenge is open to everyone !

Season 10, Episode 1: Design a corresponding outfit to the one brought from home to show to a live audience in Times Square.
Broadcast on July 19th.
Translation: take a pic of one of our favorite pieces we made and use this as our inspiration, and make a companion piece for/from this.
Example: you made a necklace before, this week you will make a ring, or earrings to go with it.
take a pic of both so we can see them side by side for the blog post.

I chose a "feather" neckpiece I made for the season 6 challenges as my inspiration

I made these earring several years ago.
I've been working on this necklace for the last month that was inspired by the earrings above. They are titled Dentata from the Dangerous Vagina series. They are formed copper with several layers of torch-fired enamels. The chain is handmade fused copper links with a heat patina.

I did an illusion of 3D Star of David
And my new baby Star of David

Charm Swap 10

Good morning!  We have an update for CS10.
Winona gives us this picture for viewers to ponder. 'My charms are going to involve these "magic seeds", they are the best thing that has ever happened to me. That's all I will say for now.'
Winona does so many cool things with nuts and seeds, I can't wait to see what she is imagining!
