New Beads - feathers!

Have you ever noticed how sometimes there seems to be a "theme" running through an artist community?  Lately I have seen all kinds of glass feathers made by various bead makers.  I don't think it is a question of anyone copying anyone else, but is just that we are all open to various influences, and perhaps have been influenced by the same things.

Anyway, here are my feathers.  I got a little carried away with them, and they are really long - perhaps the next ones will be a little shorter.

These feathers are ready to have the bails attached and a satin cord added.
Their lengths are from left to right  3 1/4"; 3 1/2"; 2 1/2" (not including the
bead and hoop).

These ones measure from left to right 2 3/4"; 3"; 3".
Hope you are having a great weekend.
