Get to Know

'Our Sugar Peacocks' is the name of my ArtFire shop, as well as being the actual birds in my father's back yard. My father has been raising birds since he was six years old. He has raised quite a wide variety in eighty years, including Guinea hens, geese, Mascovy ducks, all kinds of chickens and pheasants, wild turkeys, quail, and peacocks. He and his birds are now my next door neighbors. A perfectly matching pair of white peacock feathers is what inspired me to start making jewelry. They were gorgeous! I have always marveled at the beauty and delicate, yet strong construction of feathers. Why it didn't occurred to me years ago that I ought to wear some feathers, I do not know, but it finally did and I'm lovin' it! I'm lovin' creating feather jewelry for myself and others as well as using feathers on cards. I also create jewelry with flower blossoms, wood, gemstones, wire and all kinds of beads. I hope you enjoy perusing through my creations. I hope you find something that tickles your fancy:)!
