Project Runway Jewelry Challenge Week 1 Results

Without further ado, here are the first designs by SRAJD members for week 1 of the Project Runway Jewelry Challenge.  I couldn't be more thrilled.  You guys did an amazing job.  Congrats!

Keep in mind you can do any of the weekly challenges at any time during the series season and we'll add it into the blog.  So if you were a little late with this one, don't worry... just get it in when you have it.

Jo Pound: “I used parachute material in aqua for the base of the necklace.”

Lauren Andersen: “I love, love, love purple! The first parachute dress with the purple shoulders and diamond in the middle was perfect.”

Grace Gipson: “Neon yellow and green made a fashion comeback summer of 2012 and the fashion statement is still going strong in 2013. Inspired by the lovely parachute look created by designer "Kate".”

Cynthia Ebner: “The pictures of the curved rectangular parachutes inspired me to use crystals to make a colorful necklace in a "curved parachute" shape. Colorful and Bold”

Laura Bracken: "I wanted to combine the idea of flight with two colors of the parachute material, so here is my stylized luna moth in pink and yellow (soldered copper wire with resin).

Joyce Ingram: "I took my inspiration for this design from model no. 4 in your images [Bradon's dress]. It had the pale blue incorporating the blue v shapes in the bodice with the pinks that mellowed into the peachy yellow tones, in the amazing flowing skirt. The bracelet is mainly Czech crystal with some lemon quarts.

Nohline l'Ecuyer: "Even though I was away, I was working on projects. This is Episode 1. I used rip-stop, bearded knitting yarn, and 5mm beads to make this wrap bracelet. It is 30" long and can also be worn as a necklace."

Julie Loebbaka: "These earrings are inspired by Jeremy's purple and teal pants. Materials used in the earrings: Persian Turquoise, Purple Nylon, Gold Vermeil and Gold Plated seed beads."

These entries using parachute inspiration are great - I like the curves and bright colors chosen. You guys are good (and fast to create these great pieces in a week). I'm following along, not sure I'll take the challenge, though.
