Peacock Wall Hanging Completed

The Peacock Wall Hanging is complete!  I always do the peacock's tail last.  I start by adding a piece of vintage jewelry to the top of the tail.  In this case, I used a pair of vintage earrings:

The next step is to "shape" the tail.  It's a matter of getting the fancy yarn to lay right:


The next step is to add the eyes to the feathers.  I used some large round gold sequins with a smaller pink flower sequin in the center:

Finally, the bottom of the tail gets a little bit of a trim:


So this is complete and ready to go!  My client plans to do the finishing herself so I'll ask her if she would send me a photo when it's hanging on her wall.
