I thought that my feather-based crafting ended with cheesy Thanksgiving Day assignments from 1st grade Brownies. Screw construction paper turkeys. Times have changed! I'm ready to breakout some feathers and beading needles and try my hat at making avian-inspired accessories!

After a little searching on the Web I found what appears to be an easy-to-make, relatively inexpensive project: the Peacock Necklace, based on jewelry designer Chou Chou O'Hare's straight forward instructions over at Anyone already made one of these (or something similar) before?

I must admit I'm a shade worried, though. I'm not a professional feather crafter. No siree. But now that I'm sold on this clever crafting idea I just have to find the time to buy some seed beads and feathers... stay tuned!
