Feather of Hawaii Necklace

A Creative Project Inspired by Maui, Hawaii
I created the Feather of Hawaii necklace after being inspired by the beautiful tropical birds living in Maui, Hawaii. Feathers are fun, fashionable and easy to work with. 

Its mid-December, and the hustle and bustle of the holidays are in full force. This project will take you away to a tropical island and send you back with a great accessory!

Supplies &Tools:
  • Needle nose pliers
  • Flush cut wire cutters
  • 22 inch silver plate chain 
  • Assorted bead mix - turquoise & black
  • Earring components - both metal and feather
  • Jump rings - oval and round sizes
  • Toggle clasp
  • Metal head pins & eye pins
  • Round Metal Connector
  • Small piece of chain for pendant
Instructions for Creating the Feather of Hawaii Pendant
Start to build the pendant of this necklace by using jump rings to attach the round metal connector to the strands. Use headpins and eye pins to create the components that dangle. Both feathers and the chain are attached with jump rings. Use assorted beads and chain to finish off the design. 

Completing the Design
Add a toggle clasp component on each end of the silver plate chain. Attach the pendant to the chain.
