Festival Fever Warm Up: Feather Earrings

I LOVE FEATHER EARRINGS!


I just had to get that out there....it probably explains why I have been wondering about making my own for a while.  I wanted something really bright and colour clashing...something that wouldn't be out of place in a festival, or concert, or on a date or something.

Summer 2012



In the Summer I am going to a Spanish music festival; and I think I can safely say....I'll be rocking these bad boys!

So how did I make them?

I used: some coloured twine, a set of drop earrings, 4 beads, 4 feathers, some metal clasps (don't know the fancy name) and some pliers (and possibly a little bit of boyfriend muscle!)

Process:


1. I attached the grips to the top of the feathers using the pliers.
2. I used about 15cm of twine per earring. This was too much, but allowed me to make mistakes.
I looped the twine around the drop earring hoop. This is good as you can adjust the lengths as you like them.
3. I then put a bead on the twine, before looping it through the feather clasp.

4. I threaded the twine back through the bead before tying two knots to keep it in place.

Final: I then fiddled around with the lengths to see what I liked, before repeating all of the steps to have a pair of earrings.

Cheap, easy and fun.  (Just make sure your grips fit your feathers...I had to do some trimming which was too much of a fuss really!)
