I agree that the type of thread is very important. at first i used monofilament thread (like fishing line) any my tension was terrible, but once i switched to nymo its fine!!

I myself cant do macrame but Ive seen books on amazon about kumihino braiding (like japanese braiding) I'm sure you could do a google search for free sites. Im not sure if its the same type of thing to macrame but I hope this helps! Smiley

I don't know any books or websites, but I know how I'd make it! Cheesy

(Im bad at writing instructions so I hope you understand what I mean) Ok, first you'll need a mesh finding (a metal disk with lots of holes in it. you can buy them of designer findings, and you can get special ones with a brooch attached to the back) you could poke feathers through the holes and glue the feathers in place at the back. I think you might be able to get the feathers to curl around if you kinda stick them in sideways in the findings.

ooooooops!! I also meant to say to make the drop earrings you could sandwitch a headpin in between 2 matching post earrings so that they could be double sided!

I havent tried this, but i think that a strong glue like hypo cement should work

I have these metal cookie cutters in the shape of flowers, hearts etc that are about an inch high. I dont know where you'd get them (mine are ancient! Cheesy) but maybe you could check a special sop that sells kitchen stuff?

omg! a month ago I went onto a website that had a tutorial for something just like that!!! Ill look on my history and see if I can find it later! anyway, (if I cant find it) it wasnt for guilding (ok Ill admit I dont have a clue what gilding is! Cheesy) but the object was covered in layer of liquid PMC (precious metal clay) and fired in a kiln to make a solid gold. It probably isnt what you want but it will work!
