One last post, in my series of Badminton Birdie Baubles. If you saw the two previous tutorials, you will recall how I took this package of dollar store shuttlecocks:
And turned them into pendants like this:
And some earring like these.
Pretty cute, and so fun to make.
However! I felt super guilty, ignoring the round red tips of the birdies in favor of working with the easier, more feminine lacy bits.
I mean, jeepers, you guys! Just because something looks like a red rubber clown nose -
...is no reason it should not become jewelry, is it? Is it? And so, in a spirit of non-judgmental inclusiveness...
Some amusing avant garde rings.
And some fun and funky wirework pendants.
There. I feel much better. You see, we must not judge in advance. Anything can become jewelry!
That's right, I said anything. If anyone wants to challenge me, I would love to take it on.
And a big thank you to today's lovely model J.P. Patches, a local Seattle TV icon. Everything I need to know, I learned from J.P.
