Simple Feather Jewellery created with stamps from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning. Today I am sharing a couple of jewellery pieces created with the ‘I Shall Be Your Wings’ stamp set from Chocolate Baroque.

AW Feather Earrings

My first project is a pair of sparkly feather earrings and presentation card.

Materials

  • I Shall Be Your Wings stamp set
  • Decorative card blank approx. 16 X 11cm (white inkable card)
  • Inkpads: Archival (Jet Black) and dye based multi-coloured (Kaleidoscope Caribbean Sea)
  • Stickles (Crystal) and cerise pink glitter glue (Pinflair – suitable for multi surfaces)
  • Alcohol ink pen (pale pink)
  • Organza ribbon and ready-made ribbon rose (pink)
  • Set of silver plated earring hooks and fine cord end crimps
  • Angelina Fibre mix (greens and blues) and Angelina Film
  • Faux gems (green) and Gemtac glue
  • Domestic or craft iron (warm setting) and baking parchment
  • Jewellery making pliers (flat or snipe nosed)

Making the presentation card

  1. The card blank was coloured by blending multi-coloured ink in from the edges with a sponge. The surface was then lightly spritzed with water and blotted with tissue to create texture.
  2. The feathers were then stamped with rainbow ink and the sentiment with Archival. A little clear glitter glue was added for sparkle. The sentiment was coloured with alcohol ink pen.
  3. Two small holes were punched to hold earrings. Finished with ribbon and fabric rose.

 

Making the Earrings

  1. The feather stamp was inked with Archival ink. A sandwich of Angelina Film and Fibres (2 sheets of film with fibre between) was laid onto the inked stamp. This was covered with a sheet of baking parchment and a warm iron was pressed down onto the sandwich to fuse. When cool the fused sparkly sheet was peeled away from the stamp surface and the feathers cut out.
  2. Small crimps were used to attach the feathers to earring hooks.
  3. Faux gems were glued in place with Gemtac glue (formulated for sticking gems or beads to fabrics) and extra sparkle added with cerise glitter glue.

 

AW Feather pendant 2

My second project is a pretty feather pendant on a long chain.

Materials

  • I Shall Be Your Wings stamp set
  • Semi translucent shrink plastic
  • Archival Inkpad (Jet Black)
  • Alcohol markers (green and pink)
  • Pebeo Gilding Wax (Silver)
  • Heat gun and non-stick mat
  • Recycled necklace chain and Celtic pendant dropper (from my stash)
  • Silver plated jump rings
  • Jewellery making pliers (flat or snipe nosed)

Making the feather pendant

  1. The feathers were stamped onto shrink plastic with Archival Ink and cut out. A small hole was punched into the tops for hanging. The backs were coloured with alcohol ink pens.
  2. The feathers were then shrunk using a heat gun.
  3. The colouring on the feather backs looked a bit messy. Being a longer pendant the back is likely to show so I coated the backs with silver gilding wax to finish.
  4. The feathers were then added to the decorative pendant dropper using jump rings and the pendant hung on a long chain.

 

I really enjoyed making these simple jewellery pieces. Happy stamping, Anne x.
