About this design:
Feathers are so light and airy, they just beg to be made into earrings. The black pattern against the white makes for a striking contrast.
What you’ll need: (buy products below)
- 2 2” 21 gauge gunmetal headpin with random 3mm or 4mm bead found around house
- 2 gunmetal small spiral cones 17x6mm
- 2 ivory turkey marabou feathers
- 4 black and white patterned feathers from Mother Nature’s Palette package
Layout your feathers. I have 1 ivory turkey marabou in the back with 2 smaller black & white patterned feathers in front.
Glue each set into the cone and attach the gunmetal leverbacks to the loops once the glue has dried.
