Featherness

It has taken me a while to get into feathers… mostly because I didn’t think they went with my curly hair. But I think they do work with curls! Yay, I’m experimenting.:) So, I found these feathers buried in a closet (with some help, thanks mom!) and got right to making a pair of earrings.

I used:

  • Two ear wires
  • four crimp beads (big enough to fit the wire and feather in together)
  • A small amount of wire
  • A few accent beads
  • The two feathers

I made a loop with the wire and twisted them a bit to make a stopping point, and then put the beads on. To secure the feather all you have to do is put the crimp beads on the wire and then slide the feather in the crimps. Then I just attached the ear wires. It only took about 20 min.!!!

I hope I don’t start wearing them too much, ’cause I love ‘em!
