Step-by-Step Instructions:

Step 1:
Make 2 bead links with the african turquoise- each with 11 beads. Using jump rings, attach the bead links to the ends of an 11" piece of chain. Attach the other side of the link to the toggle, and the other link to the hoop.
Step 2:
Attach the feather focal to the hoop with wire. Make a bead charm with 6 african turquoise beads and attach to the hoop with wire. Make a bead charm with the porcelain bead & attach to the hoop with wire. Make 4 bead charms with the Czech glass drops and attach them with jump rings (spaced out evenly) to a 2" piece of chain. Using wire, attach the piece of chain to the hoop.

    Love the toggle/pendant focal with the Greek Bronze Feather & differing shades of turquoise/blues. Nice! :)

    Great color and design! Love that the toggle focal makes this an easy on/easy off necklace.

    The name looks like Greek to me…. or is it Latin? or is it a combo??? :)

    OK, I had to look Ornithes Areioi up on line. My Funk and Wagnalls didn’t have it. You are probably too young to have watched Laugh In so you may not know about Funk and Wagnalls. :)

    LRC – unfortunately I’m old enough to remember Laugh in and Funk and Wagnalls.
