I made some feather earrings this summer that turned out to be quite popular so I decided to work up some more.
On Monday I picked up a package of eye-popping coloured feathers. I opened it last night to see what I’d bought. Although more than half the feathers were damaged I found enough to make a few pairs of earrings.
The black ones are soft and sexy and slightly naughty. The green ones are so loud and noisy they’d make a parrot proud. 🙂 I wonder who’ll buy them?
The third pair, in subtle browns, are the actual colours. The underlying feathers, tipped with reddish brown, came from my Rhode Island Red hens. I no longer keep chickens but I did keep some of their long downy feathers. They’re not as brash as the other pairs, but for someone wanting an earthy natural look I think they fit the bill.
