At fall Bead Fest I got some very cool chain that I was dying to use. I love that each of the links have such detailed textures. My new feathers were the perfect excuse to try out an idea that had been floating around in my mind, since I got the chain.
I disassembled part of the chain and used two of the stick shaped links.
I very carefully bent the sticks into U shapes - I learned to shape them slowly and gently after I snapped the first stick link in half!
I attached the U shaped links to the feathers using some of the jump rings from the chain and then I used some smaller jump rings, from my stash, to connect the U shaped sticks to the ear wires.
These feather earrings are so lightweight, that I picture them soaring upward on a gust of wind and then gliding gently back down to earth.
The Glide And Soar earrings are available in my shop.
