What are you most proud of? The tassels at the bottom, comprised of feathers and beaded dangles on fine chain, were once 2 different pairs of earrings. :D

What advice would you give someone starting this project? You'll want to buy a little bag of good, firm feathers at your local craft store (goose feathers are nice and sturdy) and some very small cord-end crimps so that you can practice trimming and assembling the feather dangles. The first few feathers you make might look rough, but eventually you'll get the hang of it!

Its really pretty, earthy. The colors are a great choice and combo.

What is the total length of necklace ( not including feathers)

11/14/2011 Flag

The total length is about 56", not including feathers. (For me, this is an open arms' length, and seems to work for most necks.) :D

Sorry this response took a little longer than it usually does! Normally I'm right on top of it but my internet is on the fritz.
