Well... You're right there, I shouldn't be sorry. I do get how it feels to have people critique good and bad on wearable designs (my case fused glass/diachroic glass jewelry in particular), but her stuff is simply bad and cheap.
I did some looking at my mom's old '70s jewelry, and the patterns that Gretchen used in the fundraiser jewelry? - they favor that style of jewelry.
There were many talented people in the last season but we got a fairly subpar winner. I really don't think it was right for them to choose her over Mondo - even if it'd been a second designer in the line of this area (Seth Aaron of course the previous winner). People will buy Mondo's outfits sooner than Gretchen's.
