Introduction: DIY Feather Earrings
Have you ever wanted some nice feather earrings, but didn't because of those pesky prices?
Well here you go, make some nice earrings and post in comments!
Step 1: What You Need
1- Feathers, I used a duck from last season, don't give me crap. You can use feathers you bought from Walmart, Ebay, etc.
2- Wire, you should probably use thinner wire than me, It doesn't matter though. I used 18 gauge,
3- Earring like this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/2pcs-925-Sterling-Silver-earring-hook-ear-wire-making-findings-SMG41-/260971087831?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cc316c7d7
4- Tools- Tin snips, Pliers, Some cutting utensil, (If you use a bird), Vice, hammer.
Step 2: Cut and Bend.
Cut about 2-3 inches of wire
straighten it out.
Grab end with pliers and bend, try to make the little loop small.
I had regular pliers, so I found that putting it in a vice and hammering it was easier.
Put the earring in the little loop and tighten with pliers.
Look at last picture for info.
Step 3: Glue
Line up with middle of feather and take the cut off piece of wire, then, glue the wire to the feather.
Wait to dry.
Step 4: Done
