(2010), peacock sword, body and eye feathers, black rooster tail feathers, cardboard, glue, green satin fabric, beads (triangle, size 15, 11 and 8 seed beads and delicas in black, gold and metal tones), freshwater pearls, nylon thread, eye-closure.
This is a companion piece to Fan-Tastic I [link]. Peacock sword feathers form a swirl as the first layer of feathers glued to a cardboard backing covered with green satin on the other side. They are then layered with black rooster tail feathers, peacock eye feathers, a light circle of delicate blue-green body feathers and finished with a brick-stitch circle featuring a variety of seed beads and pearls.
In the bead design I picked up elements of the feather arrangement, such as the swirling motion of the sword feathers and the straight gold accents of the eye feathers.
The circle can be hung from the wall by a small hook sewn to the back of the cardboard backing.
