Silver feathers

I haven’t posted any projects in a while, so even though this isn’t a particularly complicated project, I figured that I would post it nonetheless!

I had some silver-tone feather charms leftover from a project ages ago, and then found some additional feather charms in a multi-pack – and when feeling the need to get crafty, I figured I would put them all together!

The large silver tone feathers are from a bead store, the small ones are actually from a dollar store, and the chain and toggle clasp are from Michael’s craft store.

Normally I don’t work with chain, because of my metal allergy, but I figured I would deal with it this time around, because this really needed to be chain.

1. I started by attaching a toggle clasp to the ends of a length of chain (I have some chain-by-the-meter leftover from a totally different project)
2. Then I attached five of the charms directly to the main necklace. I used split-rings instead of jump rings just because they seem more solid – though I did need to hunt down my super-small needle-nose pliers to do so!
3. Then I cut four lengths of chain (about 1.5cm long) and attached the charms to the chain, then the chain to the necklace between the original five feathers.
4. Next I cut three more lengths of chain – this time closer to 2cm long and did the same with the remaining feathers.

Pretty simple! It did take some time just because of the split rings more than anything else.

While I was feeling crafty, I also made up a silver chain bib-style necklace (which I’ll show off in a future post), a new ankh pendant necklace, and a black rose pendant necklace.
