Swirling Phoenix - Leather Pendant by windfalcon Swirling Phoenix - Leather Pendant by windfalcon
This was my first attempt at a leather-feather based pendant, though it didn't quite fit the purpose I made it for (as a show piece at DragonCon), I really do quite like it :) It works well as a choker or as a necklace that sits lower down. It has an adjustable chain with a clasp, so you can wear it however you like.

It's made from 4 oz. leather and painted with acrylics. The feather pieces are held together by a super strong adhesive that I use to attach things to my masks. It features stone and metal beads and goldtone wire.

I really need to get one of those necklace 'dummies' I see all over the place to take photos! I took a few of me wearing it but none of them really looked right :\

Since I'm still severely low on funds, I'm putting this up here before DragonCon. Otherwise, I'll be bringing it with me to sell at my table! If you're interested, it's here in my Etsy shop - [link]

Great! Now I can scam on hippie health food chicks at the farmer's market. And if that fails I can always learn a Jefferson Airplane song on acoustic guitar.

I figured, but how does it relate to the necklace? :confused:

Earlier I said it would be a great way to scam on hippie chicks as well as learning a Jefferson Airplane song. Those are the lyrics to one of them. [link]

I really like the suspension effect with the chain, it would be cool if you did another one that was more spread out with more chain cables to cover a greater area. I like the contrast of the scales between the wing section and single feather.

That is really fantastic <3

Even if were just the centre feather it would be worth (more than) what you're asking, imo.

I did, but I couldn't quite get the angle matched up since I was using a self-timer (the result is a bit of distortion and the necklace looking lopsided even though it's symmetrical D: ) Here it is in case you want to see it - [link] It can of course be worn higher or lower.

Aaah I don't have the money for this until the end of the monthhh.

Would it be safe to wear every day? With how it is I'd like to try wearing it daily.

It's certainly sturdy enough to wear every day, but it's one of those pendants where it might shift around a lot if you're wearing it casually (like walking a lot, bending over, twisting, etc). I figure it's better as an 'evening wear' type pendant, but it certainly can be worn for any occasion :3

That's not too bad. .w. I have a strong passion for Phoenix's is the thing, and I really want a one of a kind Phoenix necklace, but I probably won't be able to get this until the end of the month since I'm low on money.
