These show stopping, unique and hand made earrings are crafted from beautifully marked Phesant feathers and Swarovski rivoli stones. The 12 mm stones in silk shade are glued to sterling silver backing. Please, note that the feathers are 100 percent natural, they have not been colour enhanced or dyed. 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. Feather jewellery can become ruffled, if this occurs simply smooth them out with your fingers. The earrings are 10.50 cm long top to bottom.
FEATHERS -are beautiful and complex structures, they are a bird’s most precious possession. Each feather is unique and different in it’s own right. They aid in flight, thermal insulation, waterproofing, and coloration that helps in communication and protection. The feathers I am using are mostly primary wing feathers, or tail feathers (they are more easily to match)
PHEASANT -is an Old-world gallinaceous bird of the family Phasianidae, native to Asia but introduced elsewhere. Male pheasant are highly ornate with bright colours and adornments such as wattles and long tails. There are many colour forms of the male common pheasant, ranging in colour from nearly white to almost black.
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.
