Step-by-Step
Feather Earrings

Create beautiful vibrant earrings with layers of feathers and a Vintaj leaf charm!

Step 1: Match up four feathers, two for each earring. One should be slightly larger than the other to create a tiered and full layered look.

Step 2: Position the feathers over each other and insert the ends into the opening of a 9mm Crimp end to the top. The open side of the crimp end should face the back side of the feathers.

Step 3: Use chain nose pliers to fold over and squeeze down one side of the crimp end to secure the feathers.

Step 4: To completely secure the feathers, fold over and squeeze down the opposite side of the crimp end. You will now have a loop at the top of the feathers to complete your earring.

Step 5: Use flush cutters to trim any excess feathers sticking out of the top of the crimp end, near the loop.

Step 6: Use chain nose pliers to open the loop of an Arte Metal French Ear Wire. String an Arte Metal Delicate Leaf charm and feathers onto the ear wire. Use chain nose pliers to close the loop of the ear Wire. Repeat steps 1-6 to complete your earrings.

i love these earrings. Where did you get your feathers from though, and do you think i could make a matching necklace to go with them?
