Andean Condor - Leather Wing Necklace by windfalcon Andean Condor - Leather Wing Necklace by windfalcon
True to the condor's nature, these leather wings are BIG!  Each wing stretches 5 inches across for an impressive spread for this necklace.  It features wood and bone beads with a dangling leather tail feather.

My gosh your work is stunning! How do you create the individual feathers and details? And do you varnish the work after painting?

Thanks! I tool each feather with a swivel blade and a spoon tool while the leather is wet (vegetable tanned leather).  I then dye it with water-based dye, which helps to stiffen the leather.  After I paint them with acrylics, I varnish them with acrylic varnish to protect the paint.

Like all of your pendents, this is a fantastic piece. You really kept the desgin and nature of the Andean Condor. Ever think of making a brief tutorial on how you make these gorgeous pieces?

This is gorgeous!  The beads really add to the already gorgeous wings and tail feather to make the whole necklace even more beautiful! 

Of the wing necklaces I have seen from you, I really, really love this one.  These necklaces are fantastic!  :lol:  Keep making them.

Very beautiful, and the feathers somewhat remind me of piano keys. :)
