I normally do wire wrapping (especially tree of life pendants) but I had a customer ask if I could make a pendant that was like a peacock feather but in the same style as my trees. I really wasn't sure how that was going to work but I gave it a go and here's what I came up with. (Still waiting to hear if the customer likes the style too. This is still just an experiment piece.)

(Click either for larger)

I used 26 gauge non-tarnish sterling silver plated wire and tiny, Japanese seed beads in several colors. I tried to get the general color pattern of a peacock feather but of course, it's a little abstract. I know if it were actual seed bead work, it could be almost photo-realistic, but this is supposed to be more wire style.

I think it came out pretty good. It was a lot of work and lots of little fiddly bits due to managing all the seed beads at the same time. But I'd love some thoughts on it too since it's something different for me. Feedback, suggestions, etc. appreciated!!

Hello Lovely Crafty Ladies, I have a challenge for you!

In the spirit of this month's theme, I have assembled a collection of the low-rent left-over craft supplies that I just can't figure out what to do with - either I get some suggestions from you, or they'll get purged!

You can assume that I have:
- a modest but not insignificant fabric stash
- a modest but not insignificant yarn stash
- good to excellent knitting skills
- moderate to good sewing skills
- moderate to good general crafting skills
- an array of reasonably-priced crafting tools & supplies

whatever shall I do with... )

Your challenge is to use at least two of the things in the picture to make something awesome, or rather, I'll make something awesome!
