Made for the EtsyMetal Project Runway Jewelry Challenge. For this week’s episode the designers were challenged to create an outfit for Nina Garcia, the winning design will be worn by Nina and featured in Marie Claire magazine. Nina prefers a smooth and crisp silhouette, she generally wears tailored clothes without too much embellishment or excess fabric. I searched around the web and she seems to like chunky jewelry – she wears a lot of cuffs (sometimes one on each arm), and she likes to wear them on her upper forearm as well, which I find striking.
I love the winning design from this week’s show, created by Kimberly Goldson, and I made a cuff in my style that coordinates with the outfit. Kimberly’s gold, textured top has many sharp details and makes such a statement that a big and bold bracelet seems all that’s needed to set it off and balance the asymmetry.
