Ideas to Make Your Own Feather Earrings



Feathers are all the rage right now in fashion and design. From feather earrings, to feather necklaces, to feather headbands and feather hair clips, to clothing designs using birds, feathers, and angelic wings with feathers intertwined within simple or complex designs, FEATHERS ARE EVERYWHERE!!

So, I decided to buy several packages of feathers at my local craft stores--Michaels and Hobby Lobby--and dove head-first into making not only feather jewelry, but also feather hair accessories. You may view my feather headbands here: Fashion Feather Headbands.

Tips Before You Get Started

If you're planning on making earrings and have never done so before (like me), I would suggest buying a basic jewelry making kit, so that you have a good foundation of supplies and tools to get you started. I didn't buy a kit, but at my local craft store I looked carefully at all the different items for sale in their jewelry making section and bought several different items--even the ones I had no idea what they were for. I also bought a jewelry making book. With the internet and You Tube, though, this isn't necessary, as there are plenty of free sites with free information out there to teach you everything you need to know.

Make them for you and your friends for the sheer enjoyment of creating! Or make them also as a craft to sell! I am making them because I love to create AND as a fund raiser to give to children in Costa Rica.

(Last year, several of my friends and family were able to give to buy a large family's children school supplies, school uniforms, and school shoes. I look forward to what we will be able to give next January, when we return to Costa Rica.)


Good Luck!

I hope these photos inspire you to make your own unique feather creations!

Extremely creative ideas! I love making jewelry and other things. I find raven feathers everywhere I go, so I collect them and I've made two dream catchers and a mobile from some of them. I will use the smaller feathers to make earrings and hair clips. I love working with my hands. Great hub thank you for sharing.

Caitlin, they can be purchased at any craft store... Michaels, Hobby Lobby, etc. And there will be a section for feathers but also look in the fake flower stems. Sometimes there are better feathers there.

I was also wondering that - Where would you find these feathers?
