Beads of a Feather, Vol. 2
All done, but with one fix coming. I managed to get the book done, but the Atlantic Puffin is missing the directions for the bottom fringe. For those of you who have ordered it already, I will be adding a PDF for this page here for those of you who already have the book or kit. I will not be able to get this done until later in April. Thank you for your patience.

This book is inspired by all the amazing birds in the world and the imagery they inspire. This book has been a long time in coming. I've been craving time to design and bead and life has gotten in the way. But those who wait
will be rewarded!

Cardinal Joy
160 Across by 75 Down - 4-1/8" w x 2-5/8" long

When winter closes in and the colors mute to dull browns and grey,
the Cardinals create a splash of color in their bright red feathers.

Inspired by my friend Joy, she love Cardinals, so I just had to do one for her.
I don't see them on the west coast, but they are abundant in the central to eastern parts of the US.



All Quacked Up!
102 Across by 121 Down - 2-5/8" w x 4-1/8" long

Funny Little ducks make me smile when I see them.
Classic style or all dressed up, they "quack me up!"

I'm always tempted to buy one, but I think they're like potato chips,
once you start, you can't stop! I can see my house being taking over
by an army of little rubber duckys!




Feather Fantasy

102 Across by 121 Down 2-5/8" w x 4-1/8" long

These fantastical feathers were just a free
flowing design. I love to just play with color and shading.
Using some of my favorite colors.

They came into being in a day. Bright, happy
and kinda funky.

Bright colors and fanciful shapes created in the necklace and fringe compliment the feathers and bring in a little extra playful element..



Great Blue Heron
Amulet: 170 Across by 80 Down ::: 4-1/4" w x 2-3/8" long
Necklace 24" Long
Fringe 2-7/8" Long

The Great Blue Heron is a beautiful bird with subtle
rich colors flowing through its feathers. Patiently waiting
along the edge of waterways searching for their next meal.

The necklace and fringe use beautiful varigaed
Czech Table Cut Accent beads and fun Nugget Accent beads along with the seed beads to compliment the amulet.



Atlantic Puffin
Amulet: 164 Across by 90 Down ::: 4-1/8" w x 3" long
Necklace 24" Long ::: Fringe 2-3/4" Long

These happy little funny faces always make me smile, though the creative process for this one almost had me tearing my hair out, instead I tore it apart many times to get the coloring and shape just right. The end result came out really fun and I love it. His little feet walked all over me!

I had fun with the necklace, creating a fun multi-strand that helps balance the width of the piece when worn.

I may have had a bit too much fun with the fringing, and took that apart 4 times before I found the combination I liked! Enjoy!
