My feather pieces are made with sterling silver. The feathers are from my sister in laws pet parrots. I cover the feathers with glass to enhance their colors and textures. I texture the silver and then cut the birds out by hand. Beads and or pebbles are also added to some of them.
This has an embossed This is a parrot feather under glass
feather in the frame and set in a fancy bezel. It hangs from a
a parrot feather under a silver branch with a bird sitting on it,
glass hanging down
This locket can be worn in two ways. First with the embossed feather showing.
It latches on top of the feather and branches. It has the latches at the top and at
the bottom. It is secured by pushing the hinge over the ball.
You can also wear it with the parrot feather showing. It is bezel set with glass over the top.
Silver branches are set on the sides of the feather.
I hand cut the bird and branches out of the top piece of silver and cut the circle at the
right out as well. There is a space between the two pieces of silver. The bottom pieces
holds a small red parrot feather that is bezel set with a glass cabochon over it.
The 3 birds are hand cut from Sterling silver. Seven silver wires are soldered to the back of the birds and branches. Seven holes where drilled into the pebble so the wires and birds could be riveted to the pebble. This is how they are attached into a bezel set. A parrot feather that is bezel set with a glass cabochon over it and is hanging from the bottom.
These earrings are pounded sterling silver discs. They start out as rectangular and are pounded into circles. There are 3 silver balls at the bottom.
