    I came across this site from someone who makes earrings from chicken and parrot feathers in gorgeous designs. I've seen feather earrings before, but never thought to use parrot feathers. I have a ton of them and I might have found a new use for them!

    I miss my exotics. Everyone who used to buy things made form their feathers miss them too.

    What I can't figure out is how she got the pairs to be so symmetrical. Some of them look like exact duplicates of each other...

    Sometimes you have to trim and steam them before you use them. It's also best to collect and separate the feather by bird, kind of like a dye lot.lol
