As a wandered and always thinking of ways of make jewelry out of "natural" items, I found the "crazy bird lady" (she calls herself) down a few blocks from me in Scottsdale. Turns out there are still bird "farms" in the middle of Phoenix.
She obliged with my request to pick all the feathers that had been released by all of her beautiful birds. She had peacocks, hens, chickens, turkeys + pheasant and guinea plumage feathers. Not from China. PHOENIX GROWN & RAISED! Hand-washed, handmade.
I spent a couple hours picking THE best feathers. And are completely hand-made assembled by me.
These are dear to me. If you're like me, my earlobe holes have been stretched over the years, so MOST of these are very lightweight.
Onyx Beads: 3/4" in length Longest Feather: over 8" *******4 Feathers in all. and a unraveled string
Each item is hand made by me, Carrie B! Support Artists with these handmade goods.
