Project Runway Jewelry Challenge Week 4 Results

Week four's theme was Bow Ties.  SRAJD members had the option of running with the theme or using a design from the Project Runway show as inspiration (see the clothing designs here).

Without further ado, here are the entries for the week (remember, you can still submit even after the deadline!):

Nohline l'Ecuyer: "Black tie. Make with rocks we picked up from a beach in Haines, Alaska; fine silver handmade findings and a little black tie."

Symbols for equal marriage for all. 
Something old - the old Afgani beads;
Something new - the new 2x2 sterling silver chain symbolizing the equality sign;
Something borrowed - (kind of permanently) Jerry's tie silk also with parallel lines;
Something blue - Blue lampwork beads and blue pearls.
And them something a little more "wedding" - white silk and white pearls.

Kim Forrer:"I must confess I absolutely hate bowties in every shape or form.....but I really wanted to submit an entry to this contest. So this is what I came up with. The "bowtie" is copper that I cut out and colored with layered green inks and wrapped with oxidized copper wire and is used as the link for the silk ribbon to the beaded part of the necklace on the right side.

Grace Gipson: "Black and white was a big theme for the bow tie episode, so I am inspired by the colors this time: white, black, silver."

Joyce Ingram: "My entry for the Week 4 Bow Ties is a bit of an asymmetric look. A necklace that could be dressed up or down."  

I hope you join us for the next runway theme... the Lexus challenge!

And if you end up designing something for the Bow Tie (or any previous ) challenge, any time during the airing of season 12, submit it here.
