Susan Bailey of TurtleSoupBeads is an amazing polymer clay artist and instructor. Her Etsy store helps fund her wonderful series of polymer clay tutorials on Youtube. 

This feature shows her combining two very different jewelry making tutorials to create a stunning peacock feather focal. 

First, she shows us how to make peacock feather polymer clay canes. You can naturally make them in any size you want. The tutorial also includes a quick look on how to make a skinner blend. 

She then demonstrates in this tutorial on how to bead embroider a rivoli center surrounded with peacock feather polymer clay cane pieces. The latter have pre-drilled holes which were created before the canes were baked.
