I have been pretty busy lately upcycling old jewelry with new compoents to make some neat stuff. These are two of the Valentines Items I've made and will soon be posting to Etsy. I really love the way the one below turned out.
I finally listened to my cousins advice and bought some feathers to use in my jewelry designs. I chose some neutral colored feathers with a nice pattern. Here are a few of the results in the feather experiment. I rather like some of them, what do you think?
I love the contrast between the wild feathers and the conservative pearls.
So delicate and beautiful with blue glass beads.
More pearls with feathers; they are my favorite way to use the feathers so far.
I had fun trying to match up pairs of feathers to use for earrings.
