How to make a boho style feather earrings jewelry tutorial

This summer is as hot as always here in the Valley so you are trying to wear the lightest clothing possible. Same applies to a jewelry. You want it to be light, pretty and preferably inexpensive. With this thought in mind Albina (albinasjewelry) and I made these boho style feather earrings during our last craft party in April.
We were trying to gather the materials in colors that would go together and are natural. Start with the feathers and determine, what other materials will best suit your very own earrings.
So here is what you need and how we made them:

Materials:
Feathers
Wooden beads
Linen thread
Yarn thread in golden metallic color
Thin lace trim
Copper wire 20 ga
Ear wires, 1 pair
All purpose glue

1. Attach wooden beads to the hemp cord. String a bead, leaving about 2" tail, pass the cord back through the bead, and tighten.
Attach the next 2 beads 1/2 inch apart from each other. Place a dot of white glue inside a bead hole to prevent the bead from sliding. Let the glue dry.
2. Cut the pieces of linen thread cord and laces 4" long . The amount of pieces depends on your design. We used 10 of them. 
 
3. Cut  6" of wire. Leaving 3/8" tail, make a loop using round nose pliers as shown. 
4. Put all laces, linen thread, beads and feather together. Place the wire inside of this bunch so the loop is on top of the bunch. 
5. Tightly wrap the bunch with long wire end. 
Tack the wire end inside the laces. 
6. Cut the laces and cords if necessary, so they are the same length. We used the feather is a guide.
7. Attach the ear wires to the top loop.
 
This project was real fun to make and there is so much space for creativity here. I hope you will enjoy it, too!

It's a great idea! I love boho style, but unfortunately can not wear it. Your earrings are very beautiful and I think you had a good time.
