Birds Of A Feather


About this design:

Antique Brass Peacock Pendant combined with two tones of turquoise and champagne crystal rondelles. I have a fascination with birds so when I found this pendant I knew I had to do something special with it.

    Fat Redhead Designs says:

    Thank you for the comments/compliments. The clusters are merely rondelles on headpins then strung onto the wire and sort of scrunched together to form the cluster – as many or as few as you like depending on your preference. Have several pieces using the “clusters”. Happy to post if anyone is interested in seeing them.
