Clip on Peacock from Labors of Love

I have a special love for this peacock ornament - there are several peacocks on our island and they even have their own Peacock Crossing sign.

I got very close to the birds one Sunday and realized that this canvas was missing the feathers from the head. I used small gauge wire and crystal bicone beads, forming the "feathers" and then stitching them to one side of the bird. Too much fun! I knew there was a reason I took all those jewelry making classes--and bought all the tools.

Peacock crossing!
