Project Runway Challenge #1

Every season the EtsyMetal team hosts a parallel challenge to Project Runway.The challenge was to do something that represented our own style while incorporating the number or concept of five somehow. Read the details on the EtsyMetal blog.

These cage structures are an element I am introducing in my work so i wanted to explore them more here. Each cage has five "arms", for in silver, one in 18k gold. I had originally intended to do the entire necklace of them but I ran out of the 16 gauge wire and I also ran out of gas. Literally. And I just happened to have made five of them! So I ended up creating this asymmetrical look and I am really happy with how it turned out.

Oxidized sterling silver, 18k gold. Fabricated.
