Marci and Bubbyanne, those are all stunningly beautiful!

Marci, you can post the picture if you want, but I really think yours are much much better! Mine was just an experiment...I love the way you do yours!

Thanks for the compliment. That's a really cool bead. I like the dragged loop idea for the feather eye. I know what you mean about EDP. I had some pastel purple about the same time, 12 years ago, that I'll have to assume was EDP (because I didn't catalog names and numbers in my brain like I do now) and couldn't figure out what to do with it. 12 years ago, reactions from glass scared the crap out of me. NOW, I'm utterly bored without them!

If you find anymore peacock bead photos, post 'em. I think seeing all the variations is so cool.

Anna, I love the bead you gave me. It may be an experiment, but it is a GOOOOOOOOD one! I'll take a shot today and post it.

Here's Anna's very cool peacock bead. I think that you've totally captured the wispy silvered look of the background feathers in their tails! I really love this bead. Thank you so much for gifting it to me. I may ACTUALLY make something for myself this time!! ; )

not that great of lighting, sorry.......

These are very inspiring beads! I saw some beautiful peacock patterns in a jacket and a poncho in a catalog. These beads would go with those outfits beautifully! I think I'll have to get to the torch and try some of these peacock beads. Thanks for sharing your great work everyone!

Wow cool bead Anna. I like the way the background looks like the feather plumes! I need some more practice.

I got my feather today from VanityFaire! It comes from a feller named Percy! I love that! I think it will be staying in it's protective plastic coating to keep the pussen from considering it a new play thing though! Thanks again VanityFaire!

Thank you Kimmy!

Percy is going to be so proud to be inspiration for this project Mar. I will tell him when I go to visit next. His mother is a women that devouts the grounds to the peacocks. I got to go into her house on my visit there and you can totally tell she is an artist person. Her pride in her home was first the peacock pictures she photographed, but than the picture she has of her with her hand on Carey Grants shoulder in some resturant like brown derby type seating.

Wow, you know the Brown Derby is closing, after all these years? Sad. There was a revival, but it is apparently going to be demolished now. The Peacock Lady sounds like a cool chick!

Owning a peacock feather is extremely bad luck! I have had some but any time I've had a breakin it's always something that gets stolen... but do a google search on peacock feathers and I'm sure you'll learn you don't really want to own one! It's a bit like wearing opals if your not born in October!

lol, so is it bad luck to have a peacock feather as an adornment on a hat? or just a plain feather?

i guess i'm screwed both ways because i wear an opal every day and i definitely wasn't born in october.

I have some lovely opals my parent's brought me back from Australia, years ago. I have never set them, but I take them out and look at them occasionally. (born in November.....). One of my best friends is an opal FANATIC, born in April. She actually has the best luck of any human I've ever met. They must do her some good!

I've just sold two of my peacock beads.
I'm sort of sad to see them go.....

But sometimes Percy must loan out his wares for others to see close up.. its really okay this time cuz you have the blessings of percy.. I have his stuff all around my office and in my bead room.

Here's a bead I did in the peacock feather style. Next time I ever do one, I think I will try the drag of the glas down to the bead hole. I started with big dot of turquoise, then pea green and then blue adventurine for some "glitz".

Maureen, that peacock bead looks fantastic! I really like the composition of having the "eyes" of the feathers dragged towards the hole of the bead. Also, the colour combo is really nice. Thanks everybody for continuing this thread and showing how truly different an inspiration can be interpretted by a group of people!

I couldn't help myself, I have been working the last two weeks on special orders, and although I needed to get some other things done today - I HAD to make a peacock bead today. It is cooling in the kiln. Hopefully I can share tomorrow!
