Royal Feather Challenge Reveal: Laurel Ross...

This piece was made by Laurel Ross.  Here's what she had to say about it:  "For the base of the necklace, I created wire-wrapped links.  Practice makes perfect!  The focal is an eclectic tassel made up of elements like chain, waxed linen and seed beads."
"As a side note, the necklace is perched upon a rock that I got from the foundation of the barn that used to be on the Ross family farm, a Ligonier landmark since the early 1700's!  Cool, huh!?"

Take a spin around the blogosphere and get a peak at what the other participants made for the Royal Feather Challenge:

I love your necklace. The fringe is so fun! I also love your historical rock. What a wonderful piece not just because of that, but it makes a great photo background.

Fun tassel! I like how you pulled the gold ring into the focal too. Wrapped loops are definitely something that takes practice... looks like you did a good job!
