Rachel Mallis of Mint decided to host a blog hop and offered a pair of her handmade leather feathers for jewelry making. “Cute.” I thought. “Why not?” I thought.
Rachel sent me the following pair:
Of course they are perfect for earrings. Rachel even had pictures of earrings she had made with her feathers. This picture is similar to what I would have made using lampwork beads:
Instead of earrings I decided to make a necklace with my leather feathers. I also used lampwork beads that I had made, a lampwork and copper acorn by Diane Sepanski, and a lampwork leaf by Beau Barrett.
Check out Rachel’s blog to see what other people made using these unusual feathers.
