I found wild turkey feathers in the woods and decided to make jewelry out of them.
For both the earrings and the necklace I used earring pins, beads and a large diameter crimp bead. I added beads to the pin. After slightly trimming the end of the feather so that it would fit in the crimp bead I placed the crimp bead over the pin and then put the end of the feather in the crimp bead thus being both the feather and the pin in the crimp bead. I then carefully crimped the crimp bead.
