I can make you Fly, with a pair of feathers...

So a close friend of mine makes custom made invitations and greeting cards...I enjoy her work because she puts ALOT of thought and effort into her product and it shows.  If you'd like to check out her work, go here:

Of course, she will be featured in a later post...One of her card ideas consisted of a Peacock theme.  She orders some feathers and gives me 2 and says "I want some peacock earrings, do something with these"...she's soooo bossy btw...Here was the outcome:

With these, I chose beading that had an Arabian color theme in order to compliment the colors of the feathers.  I wanted to add a touch of royalty to this piece because I feel every woman is a Queen in her own merit, so I added the Nefertiti trinkets looking in opposite directions.  I also added a bit of copper chain to add a little more character into the color scheme. 

My client absolutly loved the piece...the only disclaimer I do have is that they can not be worn in the rain or while working out (sweat) because the feathers will change form if they become wet.

If you have any questions about this piece let me know, "Royally Fly"...
