Peacock’s Tail Necklace

Peacock’s Tail Necklace

Back in 2007, my blog was hosted elsewhere and it was named “Peacock Dreams” – a reference to one of my favorite shows ever, the Mighty Boosh. Peacock Dreams is about being original, even if it’s not appreciated in your time — an idea that resonates with any self-proclaimed artist. You can watch the clip about Peacock Dreams on YouTube (just be warned, it’s a tiny bit cheeky).

This necklace really brought to mind a peacock feather. Many of the beads, as well as the clasp, used in this necklace were repurposed from a vintage necklace, which I found at a garage sale. I’m fairly sure that the centre beads are vintage Swarovski 5100s. The AB coating on these blue side drilled crystals is so amazing. I framed them with cubic or 3d right angle weave, and embellished with some Miyuki Magatamas and 15s I bought at a bead show — my first time using them and I am thrilled with the result.
