Light as a Feather

These pendants are light as a feather, well almost anyway. I was fooling around with my feathers and just set this bluebird feather inside to see what it looked like. I really like the shape of this first one; it's about 4.25 inches long.

This could be worn plain or other beads could dangle inside this form. I just realized if there were beads dangling inside this form there would be the sound of them clinking when it was worn. Hum.

This one is 4.5 inches long. These are in the bisque state right now.

This one is 2.75 inches long. I will probably glaze some of these.

This one is 7 inches long; definitely a statement piece. I textured the bottom edge but I think it would be better without that.

This one is 3.25 inches long.

This one is 2.5 inches long, other beads can be attached at the bottom. Thanks for reading and for all your comments and suggestions.


  1. looking very nice. that last one is just asking for some dangles from the holes on the bottom edge:^)

  2. I'm in awe at your beautiful work. My pendants are clunky compared to yours! Do glaze and show us the completed pieces!

  3. Seeing these and wonderful feather necklaces came to mind and those dream catchers.

  4. Love the last one! Imagine dangling vintage glass beads through the holes. Lovely.

  5. The beads suspended inside is a stroke of genius. Very original!

  6. These are so unique and attractive. They have to be great sellers.

  7. Hi Anna, thanks, now I have to figure out how to embellish them after glaze firing.

    Hi Barbara, thanks, I have gotten braver making them thinner.

    Hi Carole, thanks, that's right dream catchers, more inspiration for these, I love collecting bird feathers I find in the yard.

    Hi Sonia, thanks, oh vintage glass beads would be great.

    Hi Ms. Sparrow, thanks, now I have to make a bunch of that style so I can experiment.

    Hi Patti, thanks, I sure hope so, lol.

  8. Lovely creations! Very beautiful..

  9. That top one would look beautiful with a painted feather inside! Lovely work.
