Just before Christmas, my friend Lianne commissioned me to make some necklaces as gifts for her family. Lianne gave me some pointers about the kinds of styles or colours they might like. The brief for her Mum's necklace, however, was a bit more specific.
A while ago Lianne's Mum visited a clairvoyant, who had told her that if she saw a white feather it signified that her late Mother was thinking of her. The belief that white feathers are the calling card of a guardian angel goes way back into the mists of time, but is still popular today.
The necklace was to feature a white feather, so I started sketching up some designs and searching for a suitable vintage feather charm.
