This hop is hosted by Rachel Mallis, who made and graciously provided the “feathers”. You can find her post here. The feathers were a component Rachel has used before and thought she’d challenge us to use! They have really cool burnt edges.
Rachel gave us the choice of one or two holes for our feathers, I chose two because I knew I’d want to dangle something and still want the hole to connect to the ear wire.
Here is what I was sent:
Here is what I made:
They have a very “bohemian” feel which isn’t my norm. All of the beads were ones I got while on vaca at the end of July. I believe they all came in a grab bag from Caravan Beads. There’s a pearl, pressed glass flower and a hemitite-like bead. The latter was the hardest to string because I used a thicker cord (like for kumihimo). I actually had to pull out my dremel! I’m still not sure about the attachment to the earring wires, but that’s for another day!
SUMMER 2016 UPDATE – these have been reworked and I’m happy with them
