Peacock No. 2 - True

Designed and executed by Heather Taylor, copyright 2003
I'm wearing this today, to cheer up a bleek rainy day. I made the first peacock necklace, which I called due to the way the fringe fanned out like a peacock's tail. So of course I had to make a second one that has peacocky colours. I used opaque dark blue, opaque turquoise, silver lined emerald and silver lined rainbow rootbeer. For this one, I HAD to add the peacock's crown or tuft of feathers at the top. This piece was a finalist in the Fire Mountain Gems 2004 Bead Competition, and is published on their site.
