Now to business: Project Runway is back, and I am once again participating in the Flickr group, Embellishing the Runway. If you've got some time and are looking for an interesting challenge, come join us! Any time!
For the first episode, this is what I came up with:
Episode 2 was the unconventional challenge - making an outfit based on candy - and who knew Ralph Lauren's daughter owned a candy store???
For this one, I made a stacking set of bangle bracelets, inspired by the winning look by Ven Budhu - he designed a dress using crushed rock candy and licorice. I found some tricut Czech glass 12º beads that reminded more than a little of rock candy and used them for the bead crochet rope bangles. I used shiny black Japanese seed and cube beads to make the stretchy licorice-look bangles.
Episode 3 just aired, and it does present something of a challenge. Check it out HERE. What to do, what to do . . .
More later, for sure.
