Creations Using the Marbled Feathers~Diverse!

Noogal Creations has been using my marbled feathers for a while and always updates me when she lists a new piece. I love her sense of color and combinations she uses for her feather earrings. Striking! She also has been embedding the marbled feathers in resin jewelry. What a beautiful medium to use with feathers!

I am a member of the Hat Academy blog from Queensland Australia. This is a fabulous group of milliners~ beginners and experts~their blog is vibrant, interesting and everyone shows what they are doing, asks and answers whatever questions that may come up and most importantly they are interested in what everyone else is doing.  Elaine Mergard heads this lively group, gives lessons and interacts in all the discussions. If you ever need advice as to how to do something or find something or show what you've created, stop by at

Elaine Mergard, milliner and mentor extraordinaire, has been making hats since the 1960's~started teaching at the age of 20 and is still teaching at the Hat Academy and Queensland Museum and University of Southern Queensland at Toowoomba. One of the highlights of her successful career was being asked by Her Excellency Ms. Quentin Bryce, Governor of Queensland to make her hats while in office!

This is the hat that Elaine created and topped with my purple marbled cockatoo feathers. The feathers come alive in their new surroundings! Be sure to check out the blog at the Hat Academy. Beautiful hats to look at and purchase. And all sorts of great information.
