Flying South

I had the occasion to purchase some of Heidi Ahrens Williams of Azteca Designs Boutique handmade copper feather headpins. She's going to be auctioning some off in her facebook group on October 16th!
I knew I wouldn't need much embellishment to complete the design.
That's the beauty of handmade artisan components. There is so much inherent beauty in them  that you almost can't go wrong with your pairings.

These extra crusty beads with my handmade murrini cane were put aside for those something special earrings. Heidi shipped so fast and when I received the headpins I just knew that they were meant to accompany them. I used my favorite Lucy Haslam's (Faerystones) extra long earwires but they could be easily swapped out with shorter ones for a little less dangle.
Since we are heading south soon to our desert home I named them "Flying South" because of the feathers and the desert colors in the beads.

Thanks for looking!
