Wands and Feather Trees

In my last post I mentioned two new projects.  Both were in the experimental stages.

The wands really worked out well and I am making some others.

Moose Dreams Talisman Wand:



Fantasy Faerie Wand




The Feather Tree, which is a wall hanging of gifted and collected feathers, looks fine as shown in this partial sample. 



 The details are difficult, though.  If I sold them as shown, they would not be gifted or collected.  Only certain feathers are legal.  The feather tree would have to be sent unassembled and people probably wouldn't want to have to try and get it looking right.  It's like flower arranging.  I think I will set this aside for now.  Maybe I can think of something else to use this cactus skeleton.

Any ideas or suggestions?

  2. Maybe make a beaded wire arrangement to come out of the cactus skeleton? They all look great!

  4. They're all quite lovely. The fairy wand could be a hit with children since tutu's and wings are so popular now.

  10. hummmm what to do with the cactus. Maybe flowers? might be a nice contrast. Or find some nice fake/dyed feathers so you can keep your idea, with out breaking any laws :)

  11. The wands are a wonderful addition to your shop - the Fantasy Faerie line is so sweet and charming and the Talisman so beautifully organic. Oh, I love the cactus skeleton ... I had no idea that
    only certain feathers are legal, but I can understand why now that I think about it.

  13. These are AWESOME ! Truly...

    The feather tree is wondrous... a piece of art i think... perhaps you could assemble one that only has legal feathers so that you can go ahead & sell them...
