Shades of Red and Gold Feather by Leopreston Shades of Red and Gold Feather by Leopreston
Once again, this is a belated gift for another talented friend of mine Kat! :iconfoxenawolf:
She has always been such a wonderful and supportive friend, and so I wanted to do something special for her. :)

Her character Fox is painted on a tiny woodcock wing feather and backed with a golden pheasant ‘fire-tip’ feather. These are fixed to a small coil that has been threaded onto a length of light tan suede lace and finished off with wooden beads. As an added touch and as Kat’s character has an interest in alchemy / all sorts of bubbly bottles and natural medicines etc… (hee hee), I’ve added a layer of gold leaf to the top of the piece.

So there you go, I hope you like it Kat! :hug:

This is... wow, I'm just compeltely blown away by this! Feather jewlery is difficult to make, but you've pulled it off perfectly! In fact, this is one of the best I've seen. I know she'll love it- and it was very sweet of you to make this for her. :D

By the way Steph, there's a series on.... ITV I think... called 'Whitechapel' that you might be interested in seeing. You can watch it online here: [link] ;) And that also reminds me that I really should draw Jake again. I miss the blighter!
