|The Winning Design|
Choosing a piece was hard but, I needed gold. So I chose the gold Taurus and Libra pendants, which were then made into a single earring with one pendant hanging lower than the other. When I saw the finished product I immediately imagined a short haired, dark skinned girl in London, wearing an A-line dress/skirt. I used linen to create a black dress with an off the shoulder cut to accentuate the neckline while showing off the pendants. To complement the pendants, I paired the dress with gold shoes and skipped any other accessories as I wanted the earring and the simplicity of the dress to be the main focus. I was so excited to do this piece and was really happy with the way it turned out. I think the design really represented who I am as a designer and stayed true to the objective of the challenge.
