Peacock Hair Clips for a Wedding

A co-worker of mine’s daughter is in a wedding this weekend, and upon hearing the bride was interested in peacock feather accessories she told her about “this girl I work with who makes things and LOVES peacocks”. I agreed to make the hair clips and even though my specialty is jewelry, I jumped at the chance for a challenge.
  Feathered hair adornments are so popular now, so I started thinking about similar commercially made hair pieces and what I didn’t like about the quality and what could I do to improve that. Without giving away too many of my secrets, here are a few important tips that went into making these.
  I used a stiff felt as the backing for support, and sewed a hair clip to it for extra security.
My feathers were collected from a friend who owns peacocks, so I think they are especially plush and colorful.
  I just love how these turned out – they have such a vintage glam look to them. They are going to look gorgeous with their chocolate colored dresses! And I love that the bride wanted a dash of color on hers too!
