DIY | Earrings with Feathers

Created on

øreringe med fjer

Spring has come and you will observe that there is a lot of jewellery featuring feathers out there this season.

Meanwhile, we have come up with some inspirational DIY earrings for which we have used pheasant and Guinea fowl feathers.

You can keep them simple or combine them with chains and crystals in order to create our own personal look.

If you look at the latest pictures of female celebrities, it seems as if they all were into feathers right now. They wear them on numerous occasions and events. Fashion bloggers can’t get enough of them either, and they are constantly recommending feathers to their readers.

If you want to be a fashion leader, then earrings with feathers are a must. They are the perfect accessory for today’s look, so you really need at least one pair in your jewellery collection. Enhance your ears or earrings like the stars, with delicate, natural feathers. You can attach a discreet, single feather to an earring, or use several in a bundle, or combine feathers with other materials. Now we have long earrings that are literally light as a feather and very comfortable.

Look at Paris Hilton’s fantastic earrings: they have feathers on a long chain at regular intervals.
You can achieve this look with ornamental feathers and a chain. If you’re not quite as brave as Paris, you can make a shorter version, or just settle for a single earring.

We used the following materials to assemble these earrings:

First, glue the feathers into the cord ends. Put a tiny bit of adhesive inside the cord ends, stick one feather into each and press the cord ends together.
Take 4 individual 4mm jumprings and attach the feathers and chains to the connector’s eyelets. You need two sets of pliers to open and close the jumprings. You can see HERE, in a previous blog, how to open and close a jumpring correctly without deforming it.
Next, fix the glass teardrop to the eyelet at the top of the pendant. You will need another 4 mm jumpring for that.

Attach a silver-plated leaf to the end of one chain, and a glass pendant to the other. Once again, you need a 4 mm jumpring for each one.
Finally, fasten the connector to an earwire by opening the eyelet on the earwire just a little, and inserting the connector into it.

First, fasten one chain finding to one end of each rhinestone chain. Next, attach the clamp-ons to the ends of the ball chains. You can apply a bit of adhesive before you press the chain findings together.

Now you fasten the chains to the ring by using the individual jumprings. You need two sets of pliers to open and close the jumprings. You can see HERE, in a previous blog, how to open and close a jumpring correctly without deforming it.

Then you attach the Swarovski teardrop to the ring by using another 4mm jumpring.

To assemble these earrings you need the following materials:

First, glue the feathers into the cord ends. If you like, you can press them together later, so that the feathers don’t fall out. In our illustration, the cord ends are not pressed together.
Fasten the feathers to the ring with 4 mm jumprings. You need two sets of pliers to open the jumprings and close them again. You can see HERE, in a previous blog, how to open and close a jump ring correctly without deforming it.
Finally, open the eyelets on the earwires a little and insert the feathers and ring.

You can make all of the items shown here in silver or gold.
