I’m sure we’ll get more cold stuff where I live but it’s been mild. One could almost say spring like if it weren’t only mid way through February. Still, as a shop owner with tons of floral goodies, spring is my thing.
I really like polymer clay feather canes and even though I’m still tweaking Donna Kato’s excellent tutorial a bit to make my own… I’ve made a pile of feather beads. From each of the bead canes I kept a few larger, pendant sized feathers because I had some great long necklaces in mind to make with them. This week I finally buckled down and cranked a few out using longer lengths of chain, antiqued bronze coloured wired and some of the bits and bobs in my stash.
These are mostly ear marked for my shop and for shows but if you think you need one, give me a shout and we’ll get one out to you.
Feathers are perennial favourites with beaders so I made a pile of good ones. And, for the rest of January, my Tooaquarius shop is continuing it’s coupon for 25% off orders of $20 or more. Use HAPPYHOLIDAYS to get the savings. Really, it should be Happy Etsy-versary but I’m continuing on with the holiday wishes.
