I was inspired by a fascinating talk by Edel Zollinger at a recent meeting at the Guild of Silk Painters Surrey branch. We were shown some beautiful pieces of jewellery that incorporated feathers with the most intricate and beautiful embroidery.
So I bought some feathers and teamed them up with some of my jewellery findings to make earrings and a necklace. More details in my etsy shop.
They were fun to do and not something I would have otherwise thought of. I'll work on some ideas next for combining feathers with silk.
