Royal Feather Challenge Reveal: Tara Linda...

This piece was made by Tara Linda. Since she's traveling and on the road for band she's in, she's requested to break her reveal down into two parts.  The first part is here and the second part is on her blog, where she'll show a bracelet and a pair of earrings that she also made.  CLICK HERE to visit her blog.

Here's what she had to say about her creation:  "For my primary piece, I had a blast making a long lariat.  It is 42" long and doubles at about 17".  The only beads I added: a few pearls, one heavy quartz spear for weight in the center, and a Green Girl Studios hook for a clasp to one end of the strand.  I was inspired by the opera length necklaces, but love the utility of a lariat and all the lengths and variations it can be worn.  The peacock colors are the essence of opulence and celebration to me; so a long necklace that shows off many beads and their purple/green/copper hues seemed fitting.  I used the sequins on either side of the awesome crown pendant, and strands of small crystal beads on the waxed purple linen.  I also made earrings and bracelet that you can see by visiting my blog later this weekend!"

That is an awesome lariat! I'm really impressed with how perfect the position of your clasp is and how nicely the necklace lays. Never thought of that!!!
Great piece! Can't wait for part two.

I love your lariat necklace. The style really fits with the feel of the kit. All the colors, shapes and textures play so nicely off of each other. I look forward to seeing your other creations on your blog!

Your lariat is amazing, I am loving the clasp you used and how you weighted it with the crystal (great tip)! Great Job
