Step 1: Cut a piece of wire...
Step 2: Curl
Step 3: Draw out your game plan
Step 4: Anchor
Take your wire (still on the spool/coil) and wrap the end about a third of the way down the ear wire. It's easier if you clamp the ear curve and the long end of the wire with pliers in one hand and use your other hand to wrap the short end.
Snip off the excess short end.
Step 5: Start shaping...
Step 6: Add definition
To make a nice pointy wing feather tip, grab the "wing feather" just a bit off from where you want the crease with pliers. Press the wire so you get a nice 90 degree-ish bend, then roll your plier-hand counter-clockwise a bit to get that hook-y tip. Go around where needed with pliers to curve the wing feather.
