Holiday Peacocks

About this design:

(first, big apology for the photos. Haven't been home during the day to get a good sunlight photo.) I have been inspired by the peacock feather themed christmas ornaments/decorations I have seen in my local shops, so I put together my own version of a holiday necklace a'la peacock! Longer necklace ( I like turtles and cowls in the winter so the necklaces go longer as not to get tangled in the fabric), using recycled sari silk and yummy blue/green pearls and crystals. Bring on the holiday parties!


Sari silk ribbon, sterling link, handmade clasp, dyed freshwater pearl, sterling bead, grey crystal, titanium coated crystal points, pyrite nuggets.

    Very pretty,and romantic. A real statement piece.
    When I look at this,I think of it being worn by a “bohemian” poet,sitting in a cafe in the Paris of the 1890′s.
