Art Jewellery Elements Component of the Month Blog Hop

This is the second time I’ve been lucky enough to have my name drawn to participate in the AJE Component of the Month Blog Hop. On both occasions, I’ve been particularly thrilled to have had my name drawn that month, because the elements up for grabs have been so fabulous. I’ve wanted some of Rebekah Payne‘s beautiful leather feathers for an age and I managed to secure a pair in my favourite colourway.

You can see the full range available in Rebekah’s shop, Tree Wings Studio.  So, what did I make with them?

I think these may be the longest pair of earrings I’ve ever made, but I just couldn’t resist the combination.

I’ve teamed the feathers with a pair of patinated hoops from Grubbi, then backed them up with some long vintage copper feather droppers. A couple of czech glass beads to pick up the accent colours in the feathers, and I had my earrings.

Huge thanks to Rebekah for gifting these feathers. If you want to see what all the other participants have come up with, here’s a list of all their blogs.
