Here is a proto type of the new style of earring I'm creating.  I hope you like them.

http://members.shaw.ca/mroy/feathers4.jpg

They're made out of feathers. I take a bunch of feathers and make sure they are equal in color, shape, and length and also make sure they have a mate (because you're making 2 earrings not just one) Then you hold all the feathers in one and hand with a dark colored thread tie them together. Wind the thread around the feathers, and use a dab of super glue to make sure nothing comes unwravelled.  Then take a crimping bead that has a loop on it, and crimp it around the top of the feathers.  Attach a jump ring to the crimped bead, and a fish-hook style earring to the jump ring.  Complete with the other earring, and there you have it. Feathered earrings.
