Every week Members of Etsy Metal take on a new challenge that parallels the challenges on Project Runway. This week (week three) the designers on Project Runway were asked to design a piece for a model on stilts for the first ever outdoor runway show. The Etsy Metal Translation is to make it BIG, over the top, larger and crazier than you would normally do, but still trying to keep it wearable and fashionable.
I usually feel like my work is on the larger side to begin with so I was a little stumped at first on how to go bigger and still hold on to my aesthetic. I decided to go with a hammered copper piece joined with balled wire rivets. I'm pleased with the way the negative space creates a lighter feel in a larger form. Although the piece seems big, I feel like I could have gone even bigger! Maybe I will.
The Etsy Metal Project Runway Challenges are open to the public. You can find out more about the challenges and join in the fun by checking out the Etsy Metal Blog!
