|Faux Silver bracelet with faux turquoise and eagle feathers|
This bracelet is my submission for next year.
It contains three of my own techniques.
- Faux turquoise in a copper matrix
- Faux eagle feathers with down
- Faux silver.
The eagle feather cane is my own design, not derivative. The four color shading of the feather, the shaded center vein and the splits that 'disappear' as they near the vein are the results of a number of attempts. The downy ends are a cane and are added after slicing. Below are attempts 2 and 4. The earrings shown below left are of Attempt 2 cane.

Having recently discovered the excellent qualities of Pardo Translucent clay, it became the carrier for a mix of materials that, after baking and sanding, remained shiny and gleaming.

The cabochon in the bracelet was molded using PJ046 Deep Cabochons and is available on our website. Best Flexible Molds
