Hand stitched and knotted onto Fabriano hot press watercolour paper.

A ring of paper cut-out feathers, each one is individually cut out with scissors, and gilded with 23 carat gold leaf. The paper is pergamenta, a manufactured paper which is slightly translucent and favoured by calligraphers as it is very smooth and has a slight parchment look to it.

The feathers are folded and hand stitched and knotted onto the backing paper. The ring contains about 140 feathers.
