Etsy Metal Challenge
This month's Etsy Metal challenge was to design a piece inspired by Alexander Calder. We were all so excited by this project that we decided there had to be another month this year that we do this theme again. After doing several sketches I finally decided on making this pair of earrings.
In this photo I show the necklace that inspired my design. I'd never really spent a lot of time looking at Calder's jewelry before and really enjoyed doing the research for this project. I could see his influence on many jewelry designers of today.
We had several members play along with this challenge. You can see their pieces on our Etsy Metal blog.
