    My SLW roo dropped a couple of beautiful feathers yesterday and I was just wondering if any of you use your chicken feathers for jewelry. I know that people use peacock, pheasant and quail feathers all the time. If you do post pics of them, I promise I won't copy them; I'd just like to get some ideas...

    If I make anything, I'll post a pic and show y'all...

    I have been thinking about doing it every time I find some gorgeous feathers lying around. I often pick up our duck and turkey feathers too.

    I am building up a small stash to do something fun with eventually.

    Remember the '80's? Feather jewelry was very fashionable, and it is making a big comeback this year.

    Get a crimper, crimping beads, and a feather. (You put it in you hair) Look up a vid on youtube on how to do it.
