These show stopping, unique and hand made earrings are crafted from Red African parrot feathers and Swarovski rivoli stones. The 12 mm stones in a moonlight shade are glued to sterling silver backing. Although, the crystals used are genuine Swarovski element, this particular finish is custom coating- not applied by Swarovski . Please, note that the feathers are 100 percent natural, they have not been colour enhanced or dyed. All feathers (used) were naturally shed by birds, which were not harmed in the creation of these unique earrings. All of the feathers I work with have been ethically sourced, I only use one supplier - US located bird sanctuary that has been selling cruelty free feathers for 17 years now.Feathers can become ruffled, if this occurs simply smooth them out with your fingers. The earrings are almost 10.50 cm long top to bottom.

FEATHERS - are beautiful and complex structures, they are a bird’s most precious possession. After about a year, however, these delicate tropical jewels of nature wear out, at what point they can be collected. Each and Every African Parrot Feather is unique and different in it’s own right. The feathers I am using are mostly primary wing feathers, or tail feathers (they are more easily to match)

AFRICAN GREY PARROTS - sometimes known as the red-tailed African grey or the Congo African grey, is a medium-sized, predominantly grey with a vibrant red tail parrot. It is native to the Western and Central African rainforest.

CRYSTAL - is a fine, high-quality glass invented in 17th century in England. In order to be considered crystal rather than simple glass, the product must contain at least 10% lead oxide. The lead oxide is attributed to providing the glass with extraordinary qualities of brilliance.
