So here’s a sneak peek at what I was working on yesterday… if they’re lucky, they might end up as necklaces! I say that because I’m still not 100% sure about whether there’s something in it, or if I’m trying to see something that isn’t there… you know what I mean?

So if you’re out there reading this, please let me know what you think! Should I keep pursuing this idea?

    Those feathers look fantastic, i am guessing they are made out of paper, if so how will they handle being a necklace….maybe they could be dipped in something to give them lasting qualities. I would like to see more please.

  2. Hi! I love the idea of a necklace, especially with the feathers. But I have a delicate long silver necklace, and if I’m not careful when I cross my arms, put my safety belt on or lean on a table, I fold it and it doesn’t look good good anymore. I would fear the same damages with a paper necklace…

  3. Love this idea!!! x

  4. beautiful, as always!
    I think I could see a xmas tree with lots of white feathers like that…!

    how big are the pieces? and how strong is the paper/cardboard?

    I think they’re gorgeous!! LOVING the feathers

    Thanks for your thoughts guys! I like them too, but am a bit worried about how durable they’d be.. great idea with the xmas decorations though Aude! The big feather is 13cm long, and the small one is 10cm, and they’re made from two pieces of cardboard glued together. The heart in the bottom photo has 4 layers of card.

    I’ll keep thinking about it over the next few days and see what I come up with.. thanks again for your inputs, I really appreciate them!

    Love the shapes and they would be awesome as necklaces….but the durability factor is something I noted too. Have you thought about using leather….leather and neon A.M.A.Z.I.N.G!!!! They would also make a beautiful mobile in paper form.

  8. Emily

    I love the necklace idea! I would love to see you doing some jewelry with your beautiful pieces.

  9. you know what I just thought? paper/cardboard earrings might survive better than necklaces… and how pretty would feather earrings be?

      Great idea Aude! I had actually put the necklaces to one side for the moment while I catch up on some other projects, but I think earrings would work much better.. great suggestion! Thanks!

      I also loved Stephanie’s idea of using leather.. so now I just have to find some leather to practice on! :)
