Project Runway Season 9: Episode 4
Design a piece for Nina Garcia
The Project Runway Challenge:
The designers were asked to design a day to night outfit for Nina Garcia
For our EtsyMetal Translation:
Make a piece of jewelry for Nina. There was a scene where she was going through jewelry at Marie Claire. Also she notes that she likes streamlined, modern looks. Whatever you do, don't bore Nina!
I chose the winning outfit created by Kimberly as my inspiration for my piece.
I really wanted to make a large brass cuff bracelet to go with this outfit but I did not have a big enough piece of brass on hand so I decided on a ring instead. The texture of the ring was inspired by the texture in the gold fabric. I also made it adjustable. I have been playing around with the idea of adjustable rings and this is my first real piece that is adjustable. It is a simple yet elegant ring that can be taken from day to evening and I think it works perfectly with the winning outfit!
I also think these bangles that were not made for this challenge but were made not too long ago would also great on the opposite wrist from the ring :)
