Hello, sweet friends! I figured I’d switch things up a bit and share a fun and simple-yet-trendy jewelry project with you today.
It’s not often I make a piece of jewelry with a dress in mind, but I happened to find this sweet sundress and was in Hobby Lobby the same day and saw they had Duck brand Duct Tape on clearance. I remembered a recent blog post by Jennifer Priest showing how to make the feathers and thought the color combo would be perfect for a unique jewelry piece to match the sundress. Jennifer shows you quite well how to make them if you’re interested. (click HERE for the details) I will note that just clipping the feathers didn’t leave enough dimension for me, as they don’t really stay ‘feathered’, so I cut away a few pieces here and there.
It’s a great piece for the summer heat as the feathers truly are feather weight, and the natural stone beads are feel cool on your neck.
