My co-worker Farrah has an amazing brood of chickens, and the other day she delivered some really beautiful feathers to my desk. I was so inspired by them that I decided to make some feather earrings that would be perfect for the music festival I’m going to in August!
I looked all over Pinterest and found some fabulous inspiration for feather earrings:
(There are a lot of options if you don’t want to take the feather route. We carry a great selection of feather charms, or you could bead some using brick stitch!)
I chose to first make two fine silver components using Fusing techniques. Then, I tweaked the Covering a Briolette technique and wrapped the chicken feathers onto the components and added ear wires. What do you think?
I’m so excited about my cute feather earrings and so grateful to the little chicken who made them – thanks, Nibbler! (And Farrah!)
