Peacock feather necklace by Xerces Peacock feather necklace by Xerces
It's been so long since I submitted some jewellery. I've been so busy lately, and all the jewellery I've been making over the past few months has been stacking up waiting for photos.
I've got a little more space and time on my hands, so I've tried to drastically improve my product photography with better lighting and settings. I hope I'm achieving that at least. Notice my friendly household rocks are helping the scene somewhat.
This piece has waited a long time to be photographed!
It is a necklace made with a natural peacock feather. It has been wrapped in silver-plated wire, and includes a set of Swarovski bicone crystals in matching colours to compliment the feather. The wire is designed to weigh the necklace down slightly so it lies better. I find peacock feathers are almost too light to wear.

Found to buy on Etsy here

Wow, that is gorgeous! I think the silver wire and the beads add a nice touch, too, along with weighing the feather down. :)

Truely beautiful work hun. The stone actually works great with this necklace in the shot. It is a sort of nuteral that actually compliments the feather and the stone work. And it angles it nicely for the camera. :)

Thank you so much! And thanks for the feedback on the photography as well! I was at a loss for how to take some new ones, so I grabbed some of my rock collection to see how it would look. Very glad with the results- and very happy you like it too :)

Never before has an ordinary stone looked so awesome. ;) Good job!

Or it could be some sort of peacock-phoenix hybrid. Do they spawn from stones with peacock feathers attached to them? =D That would make for an awesome peacock-phoenix farm. Growing phoenixes in a garden, hmmm...

Anyway, my delusional ramblings aside, great job. =)
