ETSYMETAL Jewelry Challenge: Project Runway Season 13.1 REVEAL "The Judges Decide"

ETSYMETAL Jewelry Challenge: Project Runway Season 13.1 REVEAL:  "The Judges Decide"

Cynthia Del Guidice "Rose Bouquet Necklace"
Welcome to the reveal of last weeks' Episode 1

"The Judges Decide"
The Project Runway challenge: With one outfit, give the judges a glimpse of a hypothetical spring collection. Designers must choose from an assortment of 5 fabrics provided to them at the start of the challenge. *My Lifetime video here*

The EtsyMetal Translation: We asked our EtsyMetal team members to create a piece of jewelry out of one or five of the themes: "Rain, Birds, Five, Ombre & Growth."

And here are our 7 team members and 2 guest submissions reveal!

Copper with torch fired enamels. "This bird necklace is inspired by the story of Demeter and Persephone from the book - Lost Goddesses of Early Greece - A Collection of Pre-hellenic Greek Myths by Charlene Spretnak. I have just learned how to use decals with enamel and on the front I have added birds or parts of birds and on the back are the words - Leaves & Vines, Flowers & Grass, Grew into Fullness, Faded into Decay, Began Again."
"Growth is something I work on daily to expand skills, be a better parent to my kids, more understanding partner and better human being. Even though I don't always succeed, I constantly try. I made this piece to show that growth happens sometimes slowly (the dendrite limestone forms over longer periods of time), but often is "golden" when it is growth in the right direction. Sterling Silver, 22 karat.
Anna Severin Bird ring
Sterling Silver, Oxidized.
Honey Comb Necklace. "For this piece I chose to use the ingredients "ombre" and "growth" to create this statement piece consisting of connecting hexagons. Hand cut copper, vitreous enamel, sterling silver, gunmetal steel and brass bee charm."
"I chose 5 & growth. This is a pin. Enamel on copper and silver.
"I chose "Five". I made long shoulder duster earrings from brass and sterling to go with my favorite of the top 3 outfits this week. I put a pattern similar to the one in the skirt onto the earrings." 
Andrea Ring Raincloud Earrings
And below are our 2 fabulous Guest submissions!
For this challenge I choose the word Ombré. I wanted to make a gradient using texture instead of color. Entropy is always on my mind. So maybe this is why I was inclined to make a bunch of circles in the beginning and then moving to the right and dispersing off into the universe.

Copper, Sterling silver, enamel, Larimar, Aventurina.

Episode 2: 
"Unconventional Movie Challenge"

 "Project Runway" Season 13, Episode 2  Air Date: 07/31/14.
In this episode, the designers' challenge was to create a look inspired by
"Things you would find in a movie making & movie watching!"

So for our team challenge we are going to define it and use the same materials the designers used for their runway creations, or you can use the show's theme!
Remember this is a Unconventional Materials Challenge, go wild!

Zip Ties
Letters (font)
Compact Discs (CD's)

Oops...I'm sorry. Did I not understand the guidelines for guests correctly? I submitted my piece but maybe it wasn't what you were looking for. Thanks Kalaya
