Tribal Treasure

French interior designer (and baroness!) Rose Anne de Pampelonne's first foray into the fashion world didn't turn out exactly the way she planned. Her line of caftans and tunics were handmade in Nepal, but what did Rose Anne decide to do when the craftsmanship wasn't quite up to her standards? Rip the embroidery off and turn it into jewelry of course! Her embellished pieces, inspired by the foothills of the Himalayas, were right on target with this fall's tribal trend and were received by fashion critics with accolades.

What You'll Need:
1 yard ribbon
3 feathers

Ornate broach or ornament

Hot glue gun


First, cut the stems of the feathers down to size. Arrange the feathers in a circular pattern, or however you think they look best paire
d with your broach or ornament. Next, hot glue the feathers to the back of your ornament.

Tip: Use a toothpick to press the feather stem into the glue to ensure it is secure. Finally, loop your ribbon through the ornament and double knot it at the neck.
