I was going to participate in a photo shoot with a gorgeous model, and needed a statement necklace to go with my vision. I wanter a feather necklace, but those darn things are so delicate! So I decided I would use leather. The shoot got cancelled, but I am planning on using the necklace in some other shoot. In this outfit, I did feel like I needed to go out and about! Instead I got to change into my sweats and take the puppy out to do her business. The first chance I get...!
You need: Leather, chain (and lock if a short necklace), scissors, Mod Podge (and brush), leather hole punch, (pliers). You can find leather at crafts stores, but I bought black leather pants from Goodwill in the fall for another project, and still have plenty.
Cut out feather-formed pieces out of leather.
Make cuts along the sides.
Make a small hole (smallest one) with a leather punch.
Mod podge the "underside" of the feathers (watch out for the holes),
otherwise small bits and pieces of leather will be all over your clothes.
How the mod podged side looks after drying:
With the help of pliers, attach the feathers onto your chain with jump rings you put through the chain links and the hole in the feather.
Ready for the summer!
I am in LOVE with this coral color Forever 21 has all over their shop. Wish they had these pants (and a skirt I bought in the same color) in a lemon-lime-ish yellow-green color, too. Yum.
