Jewelry DIY Tutorial: Glitter Feather Necklace

These feathers I collected during my last vacation during a walk on the beach once have adorned lucky ducks of Lake Garda. I like the idea to wear ​a small piece of holiday memory as jewelry. And I think these feathers seem much brighter and their color gradients are far more alive than the ones bought in the craft store.

Material And Tools – For This DIY Project You Need

  1. Firm feathers (marabou feathers are not suitable)
  2. Glitter paint (glitter nail polish also works)
  3. Chain
  4. Small connecting rings (I’ve taken a couple of loose chain links)
  5. Calottes or connection caps
  6. Scissors
  7. Pliers

DIY Tutorial: The Step-By-Step Craft Instructions

DIY Step 1

Cut the feathers – ie free them from the thick stem ends.

DIY Step 2

Attach the feathers in the connection caps.

TIP: If you put a drop of glue on the feather before closing, the connection cap will hold even better.

DIY Step 3

Brush the feather peaks with glitter. Of course, you can paint the complete feathers with glitter, but I think this way it looks better. Allow drying.

DIY Step 4

Attach the feathers to the chain. DONE!
